Anyone check the warranty to see if modding the bios is permitted?

No. That's just a bug, this is fundamental. Don't apologize for AMD, you owe them nothing.

Many others on here have similar comments to mine, lending weight to what I've said.
Fundamental you say

Does this prevent the GPU from working :kookoo: does the cause display issues

Nope

Most people would not even care or see the difference if it wasn’t made known

Hell I don’t even boot UEIFI on my rig

they didnt pick it up during the review process. which does imply that you are right.
I dont care about uefi so for me the DP issue would be more of a problem, but that does not mean that its not a issue.
Im not gonna try and justify amd's mistake any more than i would justify NVIDIA's mistake.

i generally dont understand why people are happy when team A or Team B make a mistake because some how it makes the opposite team look better.
Both teams really just want your money they wont be coming over for dinner or a drink any time soon. its 100% a transaction based relation ship, and all of them need to be held accountable for their mistakes.
Personally this issue wouldn't bother me. a bios exists to fix it and as the card displays fine as is then i wouldnt have an issue flashing the bios. but i wouldnt expect my brother, sister, wife or parents be able to do it, and AMD wouldn't be paying me to go to their houses to flash the bios for them. neither would nvidia.

I think you and the other guy just like arguing, lol. I'm not the only one saying this anyway, so what are you on my case for? Don't bother answering.

I am not apologizing for AMD nor would I for nVIDIA or any company.

Both issues were some sort of oversight. Both got fixed.

What I don't like however is that people with various colored shades are quick to forget that their "favourite" company had similar issues in the not so distant past...

No, I didn't forget and I've explained the difference, but you don't want to understand. Again, loads of people on here are saying similar, so why don't you argue with all of them, too?

I'm not surprised that AMD have issued such a quick fix, given the gravity of it.
