IIRC Gigabyte's Dual BIOS works automatically (i.e. if it detects the BIOS is faulty [checksum, maybe?], it auto-switches to the backup one). While this one requires a flip of a switch. *shrug*

I like where this is going to be for people like me, flashing modded VBIOS would be less scary now :D

I always thought this kind of feature is only available to highest-end type of card like Classy or Lightning, it's nice to see it available for mainstream product :)

In my opinion every high-end card should have this as a standard.

I have a Gigabyte 7950 and it does not switch automatically.

TWO BIOSes on a single card? What wizardry is this?
Great idea EVGA, I'm surprised nobody has ever thought of this before.

:rolleyes:
