    Hi guys

    Im a bit of a noob so bear with me please. I've just noticed that my Card uses the 013.007.000.002 bios but i can see from excellent bios collection that someone have submitted 013.012.000.021 bios from Asus and that a XFX card uses 013.012.000.034 Should i go ahead and update or would that be stupid? anyone have any ideas of what changes there could be?

    Hi

    Welcome to TPU

    Really glad this question was asked first :toast:

    -Different revisions offer adjustments to voltage, memory timings and or other settings dependent on the PSB layout for the vga card

    -Flashing/updating a vbios with a non-reference or image that is not written for the card in question can brick the card

    -If there is nothing wrong with the vga card leave well alone; should a vbios image become available for the vga card it will be released via the manufactures web site: that said [even then strict guides need to be followed to lessen the risk of bricking the card]

    *always back-up the vbios image first before flashing*

    atb (all the best)
