Do you guys think i should flash it to the newer BIOS or stick with "Never change a running system"?
If its (card ) working as intended with no problems "THEN LEAVE IT ALONE"
why look for potential problems

Hi guys!

My current BIOS is this one: https://www.techpowerup.com/vgabios/190091/gigabyte-gtx1050ti-4096-161223

Today i found this "newer" one: https://www.techpowerup.com/vgabios/194548/gigabyte-gtx1050ti-4096-170623

I can't see any differences looking at the the details.
Do you guys think i should flash it to the newer BIOS or stick with "Never change a running system"?

Thanks and stay healthy guys!
Go with the or.....what do you think that you will gain from a new/different bios? I had four identical MSI GTX 970, each came with different bios. Each performed the same.

No, don't do it. GPU bioses aren't supposed to be 'updated', best case is it works the same, worst case you brick it, there's nothing to gain.

How does one find those bios files? Gigabyte themselves doesn't upload those right?
They are uploaded to the site by users of GPUz
