Hello guys!

My problem is i have grabbed an potentialy for mining purposes modified RX580 (Gigabyte AORUS Radeon™ RX580 4G rev. 1.0).
I want to know (without dissasembling) the brand of the VRAM to put the right stock BIOS on it.

How GPU-Z read out the Brand of VRAM? Out from the bios or directly from the VRAM itself or something like that?

Please note you are unlikely to get quick replies here. Ask in the AMD graphics cards section, please, and you will get a much faster and exact reply.

EDIT: To the mod that deleted my previous reply, thanks for deleting my helpful reply, that surely helped the OP a lot -- but could you please sign your message to me with your forum handle when you delete, so I know who did it? :)
Anonymous deletion is not proper IMHO.

thx to the mod for deleting your first message, because my question belongs directly to the app GPU-Z itself.

@forza1903 -- yeah, right - very helpful indeed. :D
IF you take a look at the section suggested, you will see lots & lots of similar questions/threads just like yours here -- with replies too. :) So, your question mostly belongs there and not here.
And the folks there are very helpful and usually reply quickly - unlike here, where as you can see you have no (real) replies for days now, and are in fact unlikely to get any soon. :)

EDIT: IF you read the threads in that other section, you would see the experts there do NOT recommend trying to figure out a video card's RAM brand with only GPU-Z.
The general opinion and recommendation seems to be to look at the actual RAM chips on your graphics card.
(And I am afraid some disassembly is needed to do that, but it should NOT be that hard to do.)

I tend to agree with you

The question was entirely pertinent to GPU-z and is posted in the correct section.
The average member would not know how GPU-z reads what memory is on a GPU.

Okay then, not willing to argue. :) Not worth it at this point..

I was just trying to point this new, clueless member where to post this to get the best, fastest replies.
If you look at the AMD section, you WILL see OP posted there too, and got much more useful & numerous replies than here. ;) (exactly as expected)

I mean this thread:

EDIT: So much for "caring" in your nick-name... Not really "caring", just being generally annoying. :(
