At last! AMD's board partner, XFX, will honor the overclock usage of Radeon HD 6990.

You think overclocking ’s 4GB would void its ? Not anymore, because now honors the card’s switch!

According to the video card manufacturing company’s sales manager, Gavin Pitt, XFX will recognize the use of AMD’s Radeon HD 6990’s switch. This will enable the card to use the overclocked BIOS, provided that it is still under the standard warranty.

“I’m proud to say that, as part of our going support and dedication to both AMD and the gaming consumer, XFX will warranty the 880MHz OC usage as per our usual RMA terms, as long as there is no consumer induced damage etc, as per our usual terms and process for RMAs.”

AMD has previously pointed out that enabling the overclock will void the Radeon HD 6990’s warranty. In fact, the company shipped all cards with a yellow sticker over the Dual-BIOS switch. However, overclocking the card will only give a minor GPU core frequency increase of 50MHz, with an extra 0.055V to each vcore.

Are you pleased that AMD’s board partners are covering overclocked Radeon HD 6990 cards?
