    But I cant find this rom in the vga BIOS collection - which card is this rom belonging to?
    Is there a way to search xxxxxx.rom files in the "database"?

    This happens when someone uploaded the BIOS before, but I havent had time to manually approve it. I check all BIOSes manually because people enter really stupid stuff, or deliberately wrong info, or upload their broken modified BIOSes.

    If you need a specific BIOS, make a post here in the forums and I'll pull it out for you.

    Okay - here is the deal....

    Not long ago the my GTX 770 had a fault on the fan-control chipset and GAINWARD was so
    kind to send me a new GPU card.

    They are not the same in the romĀ“s tho.
    The old one had higher frq. in both base (1071.5) and mem clock (3517) .... - so I was looking for the old BIOS file.
    But maybe that is a bad idea??
    There could be other bugfixes in the new cards BIOS??
    Or maybe the card has another chipset fan controller or memory from another vendor?

    I also want a bios... for my Sapphire 7770 HD 1024 MB which is R7 250 rebranded version. I think my bios is corrupted as it freeze at stock setting while playing games.. as it fails to render soft shadows it Freeze my GPU like this... [​IMG]

    video link :

    The crash happens at very last of the video.. but i show that it only occurs if my GPU renders Soft shadows from GPU cap viewer.. Which is what i diagnosed.. its not that software that crashes it.. but i guess i have a bad bios. . lets see.

    Hi!

    Can you please make public "Gigabyte GTX 970 4096 MB G1 Gaming" (GV-N970G1 GAMING-4GD) BIOS ver. F60
    I try to share it via GPU-Z, but got similar message "This BIOS is already part of our collection 177255.rom"

    Thanks!

    You can now access all BIOSes, just select "Unverified Uploads" in the GPU brand dropdown, I'll set that BIOS to public

    Thanks. What a mess :D "because people enter really stupid stuff"

    P.S. I think GPU-Z bios sharing feature isn't described enough. Anyway most foolproof way - expand database using info extracted by GPU-Z and leave only one field like "comment" for user.

    The exact model of the card can't be determined easily, so people have to enter it, and as you can see many have absolutely no clue :)
