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.

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.
