Problems with Asus Rx 470 Mining bios flash

I been having problems with flashing the bios of this card. I get subsystem id mismatch error when using several different bios, one of which was an unverified version. If some backstory will help, the reason I'm flashing is because the gaming performance for this mining card is poor. I also have a screenshot attached with the gpu-z specs of my graphics card. How I got here is basically through a youtube video on how to flash a gpu bios on youtube. Thank you

Gonna need white sticker pictures from card back and a physical verification of the memory around the gpu die, take card apart and get a close up pic of a ram chip with info on it, and then a far shot of board with die and all ram chips in it

Try these bios first


Then Try this one if above notworking.


The rest say something about 570 detection...




Get this tool, follow the Easy AMD Flash video in my signature.

Yes exhaust those files, check each for the timings and deterimine the one with the highest timing number (stability) if none work let us know and also contact asus for help.

Sometimes those mining cards come broken to users

I tried it out and the bios flashed, the very first one you posted, haha. I'm so glad about it. I think I just didn't use the database effectively. I could've sworn I typed into the search engine correct, but oh well, just glad it worked. I'm installing the drivers now. Thanks again.

I tried installing the driver and it says that I have an rx 470 under device manager, but when i try to start up Radeon Software it says no amd driver installed, as well as tried running a game on there and it's still unstable. Nonetheless you helped me out with me issue though is the good news and silver lining, I suppose I can do some research and find out if Mining gpu's just aren't game worthy... It might just be that. Regardless the outcome thank you

Listen up the timings are tighter on a mining card than a gaming card.

I would replace thermal compound on the gpu then learn how to use Polaris Bios Editor and implement the memory timings from this bios.


tCL-tRFC 400 MHz: 4-4-5-5-18-7-39 800 MHz: 7-7-11-11-34-10-79 900 MHz: 9-9-12-12-38-11-89 1000 MHz: 9-9-13-13-41-12-98 1125 MHz: 11-11-15-15-47-13-111 1250 MHz: 12-12-17-17-52-15-123 1375 MHz: 14-14-19-19-57-17-136 1425 MHz: 14-14-20-20-59-17-141 1500 MHz: 14-14-20-20-61-18-148 1625 MHz: 16-16-23-23-68-18-164 1750 MHz: 16-16-23-23-68-18-164 2000 MHz: 16-16-23-23-68-18-164

Into this bios

Ok I'll give that a try, just for fun. But nonetheless I'm probably going to have to return because without the driver wanting to install I cant really play most of the games I'm trying to play, unfortunately.
