Graphics card upgrade on 27" iMac 2011?

Does anyone know what the next upgrade is of Graphics card? Currently running on AMD Radeon HD 6970M 1024MB

Apple have already done the free upgrade for faulty graphics cards but they can only upgrade to the same graphics card so i now have the same issue again.

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

Most of those boards just needed a simple reflow. I use an inexpensive ($70.00), 898D+ 2in1 SMD Rework Station Soldering Hot Air Welder ESD Tips BGA Nozzles KIT.

Then here's a short course on micro-soldering on this link for the high dollar one.. Hakko Microsoldering Starter Bundle

Sadly, there is no higher graphics board for this series.

How long ago did you get the graphics board replaced? I would go back to the Apple Store with repair slip in hand. See if they can replace it again.

This thread is a bit old but since it showed up on my Google search as I'm thinking about the same thing, here it is a link that might be better than using a non-supported card:
