Hi, guys!

My name is Moisés Torquato, I'm brazilian. I have a video board named "FAKE GeForce GTX 1050ti 4GB DDR5" at GPU-Z, cause the chip on that is a GTX 560M 1GB DDR5. I would like you give me support to change this bios to put in it the true informations.

Grateful since now!

PS: I don't speak english very well, cause my nature language is Portuguese. Sorry for some mistakes on this thread.

Yep, you got scammed! Looks like more people are becoming prey to fake video cards more and more now. :shadedshu:

I think this is happening, because Nvidia and AMD don't have the scammers raided!

Nvidia and AMD aren't law enforcement and it's not their responsibility.

Ok, that's right. But are there some way to make this work? Flashing the right bios of the chipset or something like that.

It's probably a GTS 450 like almost every fake card out there. Can you take pics of the full card from front and back?

Yeah... they're almost always GF116 so they're GTS 450 rev2 cards. I've seen few GTX 550 Ti ones, but they're usually GTS 450 rev2s.

Yeah.. four memory chips so it's a GTS 450. GTX 550 Ti would have six chips as it has a wider memory bus.

Yeah, I meant on one side, my bad. :D
Kkk all right, bro. If I'm not wrong, there are 1GB of ram. The datasheet of Elpida shows 1Gbit for each chip.

I'm still in the doubt, cause the GPU chip shows informatio of a GTX 560M card.

Sorry, i misread your post earlier. I can't find the bios for a GTX 560M 1GB DDR5 but try here i've may have missed it....

I don't found 1GB ram memory Bios, only 1,5GB or more.

If I edit the Bios information with NiBiTor or other software for that, it's work?

Yeah, I'm pretty sure you got that memory correct.

560M uses a GF116 chip with either 192:32:16 or 192:32:24 configuration, the first one would be similar to GTS 450.

Ok. I'will try flash bios of these two types, and we let's see the result.

Just make sure that it's a GTS 450 bios, as GTX 550 Ti has a 192-bit wide bus so it could result into problems.

It would be interesting if I managed to edit the original Bios, so I could put the correct information on the card. But I tried with NiBiTor, MaxwellBiosTweaker and KeplerBiosTweaker, with no sucess :/

Just make sure that it's a GTS 450 bios, as GTX 550 Ti has a 192-bit wide bus so it could result into problems.
Ok. Thank you so much! In a few days I'll be back with the result, because I need the USB programmer.

Thought the same thing. This one has a power connector but other than that the boards are extremely similar if not identical.

As far as i know, those fake cards have the firmware locked. You cannot flash it through the software tools.
You need to use a SOIC8 SOP8 Flash Chip IC with clip connector and a Flash USB programmer.
