    Radeon VII & GPU-Z support?

    Maybe only Sapphire branded Radeon VII GPUs are missing the UEFI support. They had the same omission on some earlier 500 series cards.

    Radeon VII & GPU-Z support?

    This user flashed a non-UEFI Sapphire Radeon VII with the Asrock Radeon VII UEFI firmware: https://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/imac-pro-x299-live-the-future-now-with-macos-10-14-mojave-successful-build-extended-guide.255082/post-1907056

    Radeon VII & GPU-Z support?

    Is the Radeon VII supported yet by GPU-Z? In particular, there seems to be a problem in certain systems such as with the Intel X299 chipset, of being forced into "CSM enabled" mode when the Radeon VII is installed. Would like to use GPU-Z to double-check that the "UEFI bios check box" for this...

    Meltdown and Spectre Patched BIOS for X58 Motherboards

    Okay, well: thanks for offering. MSI X58 Pro-E is the specific model of board; most recent bios is 8F, dated 2011-03-19: https://us.msi.com/Motherboard/support/X58_ProE direct download link: http://download.msi.com/bos_exe/mb/7522v8F.zip

    Failed Flash Bricked GPU, tried all available bios

    A CMOS reset may be required, since you have switched from video card to MB video without first adjusting the bios setting. Check the printed owner's manual for the motherboard for the CMOS reset procedure.

    Meltdown and Spectre Patched BIOS for X58 Motherboards

    Can you post a link to the software tools that were used?; that might be useful. An MSI X58 board that I have should probably also have a microcode update against the Spectre/Meltdown security issue. The UBU (UEFI Bios Updater) Tool only works on AMI UEFI bioses, which the MSI X58 board...

    GPU audio chip ionfo

    Okay: is the audio out chip that's found on video cards, found as a separate microchip, or is it located on the same wafer as the GPU? I recall that some ATI (pre-AMD buyout) video cards did include Realtek audio. At any rate: it seems to be logical to include some details on the audio output...

    GPU audio chip ionfo

    Is more detailed information available for determining the specific GPU audio chip's model number & capabilities? S/N ratio, for example. AFAIK, Realtek audio chips are usually found on most video cards with audio out capability, even though the AMD/nVidia driver usually calls the audio driver...
