I bought a r9 280x tri-x from sapphire she is with the bios of a r9 280x dual oc of the sapphire too and wanted to know if it has to change the bios
bios that is in it: https: //www.techpowerup.com/gpudb/b2463/sapphire-dual-x-r9-280x-oc


bios that I wanted by: https: //www.techpowerup.com/vgabios/149734/sapphire-r9280x-3072-130829-1

but the memories of my vga is: HYNIX H5GC2G24BFR

and the memory of the other is

Hynix H5GQ2H24AFR


is there any problem ?
There is a problem.

Do not flash your bios at all, you will break the card, leave it alone.

there is risk involved in flashing your bios. Please be certain that you weigh the consequences with the possible benefit of doing it (at most, 5% perf increase VS possible dead GPU). Also, be Prepared , and financially capable of replacing the GPU, if/when it goes wrong, as with anything in life, your better off preparing for the worst, and Hoping for the best, NEver prepare for the best outcome, and ignore the possibility of the worst happening.

Before you start anything save at least two copies of the original bios one of them on your computer, and another on a separate drive maybe a thumb drive for an external hard drive.

I don't know if this is for mining or if it's just for increased performance but I would take some time and read through the many guides & how to's, that are online.

It's best to read twice as long as you think is necessary and make 100% sure you know what you're doing before you begin this process. The reason I'm recommending this is had you done what I'm recommending you wouldn't need to ask any questions at all.

Best of luck, i hope it works out well for you

Welcome to tpu

heres a guide and a place to start reading

You're very welcome, & there's nothing wrong with asking questions. It's just that once you've seen your fair share of people who ruined perfectly good GPUs trying to flash them with, limited knowledge, you tend to air on the side of caution. ;)

Você é bem-vindo, e não há nada de errado em fazer perguntas.
