RX 460 4gb has more shaders and TMU than advertised

Question asked by ibanggpu on Mar 7, 2017

The card has 16/56 tmu and 896 shaders but the hardware can be unlocked and 16/64 tmu and 1024 shaders can be used, requires a custom bios flash that doesnt work anymore since the latest 16.1+ drivers wont recognize the gpu.

Can AMD somehow unlock our rx 460s true potential? The extra shaders will give the gpu the power needed to run overwatch at 1080p instead of 860p that was advertised in amds benchmarks.

 

Is AMD aware of this?
