post #1 of 1324
Thread Starter 
Hey guys, owners of gigabyte's hd7950 windforce 3x, take a look at this interesting Bios update. According to Gigabyte this Bios update solves many bugs and improves system stability, and also includes the new "boost" feature, allowing to automatically boost the core clock from 900mhz to 1000mhz.

Flashing now... will report later.

Edit: Can't flash because of error code 0x2000000A - I have the F2 bios currently and cannot flash the F3 bios. Cool.

Oh men something similar happened to me. I also have the F2 bios and I tried to flash it with Easy Boost software, just followed all the Gigabyte steps carefully but when It was flashing there was a "error" message and my desktop freezed ._. . So I turned off the power switch on my case and turned on the pc again. The screen was black but the pc was on, there wasn't even the Bios startup screen, I thought my videocard was dead x.x. But I remember it has a Dual Bios switch so I put the switch in position 1 ( it was at position 2 for default) and I guess it enabled the backup Bios so everything was fine again. I'm never gonna try to flash my videocard Bios in my life again....ph34r2.gif
Hope Gigabyte fix this Bios, if anyone else have problems with this F3 Bios please feedback.
