Hey !
I have a ATI 9500 PRO (BUILT BY ATI). I have no Idea of what make the ram chips in my board are. However they have HY5DU283222 F-36 217A KOR (hyundai???, hynix????) embedded on the surface of the ram chips. The chips are arranged in line (not L shaped). I tried the omegadrivers.com drivers but my card seems to max out at 310/300 (display gets garbled after that).

My questions are:

1. Can I BIOS flash my card with a 9700 PRO BIOS?? Will this result in a 9700 PRO or 9700 (non PRO)?
2. Where can I get the BIOS?

Any help will be highly appreciated.

Thanks.

You can't get anything more out of the card with a BIOS flash. The flash was originally to turn a 4-piped, 256-bit mem bus 9500 non-pro into a 9700 non-pro. Some 9500np cards had 128 bit mem and so the flash didn't do much except turn the card into a 9500 pro.

A 9500 pro is an 8-piped 128-bit card, so no extra stuff can be attained by flashing.

i beleive that your ram being in a straight line indicates that a flash will do nothing.

it needs to be on the SAME pcb as a 9700 in order to work. (read, ram in an L shape)
