Tried to flash the above card in Ati tool with the Vega 64 fw uploaded on this site and I get a SubsystemIDs mismatch error.
GPUz shows that my Vega 56 has Samsung HMB2 memory, same as the memory on the vbios upload here.
Can it be flashed?

Thanks!

All good. I switched to the secondary bios and it flashed ok.
I used Bullzoid's video as reference and used the command line.

Don't know about the article but I managed to flash my Strix 56 just fine via command line and I am getting higher clock speeds on both the gpu & the memory.

It appears that you have higher clock speeds, but in reality I thought that flashing it did nothing. This came about when people could flash their RX 480 4GB to the a RX 480 8GB, but supposedly AMD fixed this, at this this was my understanding.

I don't think that this is the case, as I have also benchmarked the card before and after the flash.
I wouldn't say that the differences are mindblowing but they're there.
I will retest against the other bios (stock strix 56) and revert.
