Anyone with a FZ-bios know which bios version from the Gigabyte site I should flash too (or if its safe)? Experiencing some flickering in ETS2.

Which is your exact model vga?
And why do you want to flash your bios? Do you have some issues? Otherwise there is no point of flashing it.

Hi,

I just got a Gigabyte 7950 OC (GV-R795WF3-3GD) and it came with the FZ1 BIOS as well.
This bios is kinda weird as instead of the announced 900MHz, GPU-z show 1000MHz (although you need to put the overdrive to +20% to reach them) but there is more: the VDDC go to 1.25V when the card is used with Overdrive.

Via the default burn test in OCCT, VRM went to 105°C.
On Heaven maxed in 1080p (only tesselation on normal) without any OC nor Overdrive i get 60 FPS.

What do you thinnk ?

GV-R795WF3-3GD like MCS below, BIOS date according to CCC is 2012/11/23. I was thinking of flashing because I'm getting annoyed by the flickering textures in ETS2, was thinking that a new bios might help. As MCS says default clock is 1000Mhz at 1.25V, maybe Gigabyte crammed up the boost too much? Default voltage at load 1.25V, regardless of Overdrive enabled or not.

I have disabled Overdrive but it makes no difference, it goes to 1000/1250 and 1.25V during any load. I note you run Windows 8, apart from that our GPU-Z screens are identical. Will run Heaven and revert with results. You say your model is "7950 OC"? I cant find any reference to OC on my box but it is the same part no.

my Vrm went to 88° in full load. i read in some place the vrm max temp is 125°, but i think is very high.

With this kind of core clock and default voltage i think this could be some variation of F3 bios. May you can try F2 bios but use atiflash under dos to flash - it will be more safety. I think that there are some explanations how to do it here in the begining of this thread.

Ran Heaven (pretty!) at same settings as MCS and got near as makes no difference same result (59.0). VRM's at 80C. No flickering though so might be issue with ETS2 itself.
post #227 of 1324
If ETS2 runs with directx9 your problem comes from the drivers. See some pages backward.
post #228 of 1324
Oh, thanks I went back and had a look. Shame that the drivers aren't up to snuff. I found out how to read my ASIC now as well and it came up with 55.5% which I understand indicate that my card is "leaky" and requires alot of voltage?
post #229 of 1324
Don't bother too much - mine is 58.4% but it clocks just fine on 1100/1575 MHz on 1.2V. But the card is good enough so i run it on 975/1375 MHz on stock voltage.

Wow surprised I am not the only one with a chip that have a garbage ASIC quality in the 50s.
It seems Gigabyte choose the dud, leaky & terrible overclocking chips and slap them with this awesome cooler.
Looks like Gigabyte will be in my blacklist when I decide to buy a GPU again .
