Ok...so there's now some breaking news on this story. Apparently ASRock has released a Radeon VII BIOS with UEFI support. Which according to hellm is the reference BIOS with a UEFI/GOP image.
hellm said:
There is now a BIOS released by Asrock, it has the exact same legacy image as the reference BIOS, and also has an UEFI/GOP image.
https://www.win-raid.com/t892f16-AMD-and-Nvidia-GOP-update-No-requests-DIY-46.html#msg71150

Which I confirmed by checking the ASRock site.
https://www.asrock.com/Graphics-Card/AMD/Phantom Gaming X Radeon VII 16G/#BIOS

I downloaded it, but I'm unable to extract the BIOS from the .exe. I did, however, use the compressed EFIROM(containing the latest Vega compatible AMD GOP version 2.5.0.0.0) uploaded by hellm to make a new Radeon VII BIOS with UEFI support. Which again...might not work. Or it might. I don't know for sure if there's any special magic involved in adding the compressed EFIROM to the Radeon VII BIOS so that it works correctly. Maybe, maybe not. I would have liked to do a side-by-side comparison to the one I made. But...unfortunately...no.

Anyway...hopefully someone flashes the ASRock BIOS soon and uploads it to the TPU database. But...until then there's this.

EDIT: I figured out how to extract the BIOS from the ASRock .exe. I've compared it to the one I made and they're very similar. So it's possible the one I made will work. But I'm still not betting that it will. Anyhow...who cares? You can just flash the one from ASRock and it will almost certainly work. Though I can't guarantee it will. But if it doesn't...that's on them...not me. So I'm attaching the folder I downloaded from the site linked above. Inside of which are the original contents, plus the .rom I extracted.

EDIT 2: Just flash the one attached to the post below. It's the same. Minus a weird header that might have caused a problem(as I didn't think far enough ahead to remove it). So if you downloaded the one I attached...just delete it. Don't risk flashing it for no good reason.

All Radeon VII cards(released to date) are reference models. Meaning...any BIOS that works on one will work on another(regardless of the brand, which for reference cards is essentially just different stickers and a different box). And while I'm not guaranteeing the BIOS @DSM2 uploaded will work(basically because I haven't tested it myself, as I have no means to). I have checked it against the ASRock Hybrid/UEFI BIOS, and it's the same. So...if it works on an ASRock Radeon VII...it will work on ANY Radeon VII(again...that's been released to date). That much I CAN guarantee.

Maybe only Sapphire branded Radeon VII GPUs are missing the UEFI support. They had the same omission on some earlier 500 series cards.

It's a reference card. Typically, all reference cards use essentially(if not entirely) the same BIOS. Which is cooked up by AMD and distributed to different manufacturers in an identical configuration for each of them. Sometimes manufacturers will change the subsystem/subvendor ID, so that the card identifies in software as a particular brand. But other than that, the BIOS is essentially(if not entirely) the same. Since it's being used on what amounts to the exact same card, regardless of what brand the stickers or boxes say. And there's no real need for it to be any different at all. In other words, I can pretty much guarantee you all manufacturers got the same BIOS from AMD without UEFI support. Some of them may have put their name on it so to speak. But so far only ASRock has added UEFI support...AFAIK.

EDIT: Oddly enough Sapphire and PowerColor both state their Radeon VII cards have UEFI BIOS support. We know that's not true of Sapphire(don't know about PowerColor, but I doubt it). No such statements from MSI, Gigabyte, XFX or ASUS though(at least none that I can find). And we already know ASRock has a UEFI supporting BIOS ready(but they don't mention it anywhere either, except on the page where you download it). XFX does state theirs has "Microsoft® Windows® 10 Support". Which IS NOT the same thing as UEFI support...for the record.

Hi there, not pushing or pressuring anyone, just want to know if there's any progress on GPUZ support for Radeon VII.

Oh, when you get a public version ready, maybe send us a copy of the DLL version as well so we can update Futuremark SystemInfo for 3DMark and other benchmarks - quite a few Radeon VII owners grumbling about it :)

I've flashed mine to the latest BIOS version 016.004.000.038.011717, quite easily done actually. Anxiously awaiting the release of GPUZ with Radeon VII support....

New ASRock Phantom Gaming X Radeon VII 16G BIOS firmware rom ver. 190221 from 2/26/2019 saved with GPU-Z and also uploaded to database.
I wonder what is difference between this one from Asrock and the one that was released by AMD very recently.
https://www.amd.com/en/support/radeonvii-vbios-eula
That one had a version: 016.004.000.038.011717
Before the above mentioned one AMD released 016.004.000.030.011639 to add UEFI support.

I checked it.
The new Asrock bios that kgp posted is the same as the one that AMD release recently.
AMD released bios: https://www.amd.com/en/support/radeonvii-vbios-eula

Here is a screenshot from ATIFlash.
My Radeon was flashed a week ago with AMD released v106.
ATIFlash shows that the Asrock one is same version like available on AMD website.
