So I've bought a spi programmer and I found the bios chip on my gtx 1650. However the bios chip comes up unknown and generic. Is there anyone who is experinced in spi programming, I would love it of we could have a small chat maybe on discord because im a little stuck. I dont know what chip model to select and what size. Also i dont know if im doing it right. Any help would be great. I do have the original vbios rom and ive downloaded other bios roms too.

In order to correctly flash the bios chip using the spi programmer i need to select the correct bios chip model

What is the chip model? It should say it on the chip. If it does not, how do you know you have the right one?
