    The bios trick isn't one that was ever marketed, or ever wil be, it's a cheeky overclockers trick someone found out when they were released. Overclocking alone won't get a 6850 to 6870 performance though, as the 6870 has more stream processors, the part which is usually unlocked using the bios trick.

    That said, i was wrong the 68xx series isn't the one that can do it, it's the 69xx series, see here: AMD Radeon HD 6950 to HD 6970 Mod | techPowerUp

    According to several reviews I've read, the card *can* get 6870 performance via overclocking. ASUS Radeon HD 6850 Direct CU 1 GB Review - Page 31/32 | techPowerUp for example.
