Hi, I have come to the issue of an ASUS ROG Strix GTX 1070 Gaming OC 8gb I had bought used. There was an issue with it when I received it as it wouldn't post or boot, but it looked like a BIOS failure to me, so I reinstalled the correct BIOS.
Perfect, that got me into Windows at last, and got to use the basic Windows graphics driver. When I installed the nVidia drivers though, Windows still wouldn't detect the graphics card.
GPU-Z was no help either as everything was listed correctly, however the bus width, bus interface, bandwidth and memory size were either the wrong value or 'unknown'.
The GPU-Z page is on this link http://gpuz.techpowerup.com/22/01/23/nhn.png

Does anyone here in the community know what I can do to fix it or anything to help, please post a comment under this post :D

Is bios for this card for sure? I dont know for nvidia but amd has pacher, so when I overclock the card, to work properly I use pacher and the freq will show on the gpuz and msi will be able to work with card.
Check again bios and try to reinstall drivers, or try mods(app for vmem check) to see if vmem worki g properly

The GPU is either faulty, or you flashed an incompatible BIOS to it


GPU-Z uses data from the drivers, so it will not work on a GPU with no drivers (or in a code 43 or similar error state)

Plenty of bios here for his particular card.



1633 is all that is needed to be looked at

If none of the above fix the card, the card is toast.
