I don't really see how I'm getting "hung up" on the 64 flashing thing...? I haven't touched AtiFlash since making the thread, and even though I would like the extra memory headroom - I'm not feeling great about losing an output.
Yes Please do not, that is the best Advice I can give at this rate.

Just to complement the thread, I flashed the Vega 56 to a 64 bios and as @fullinfusion pointed I can't get back on the 56 stock bios. I've lost the use of the first display port, which is not a problem since I only use one screen on the gaming PC.
I would say the drawbacks are "acceptable" but if I knew those beforehand I would not have gone with it, the time it tooks me to find this thread and change my displayport cable was not worth the stress :D

Yup seen it time and time again on them cards... But from what I know them other cards are still working away despite not being able to flash back :rockout:
