New Bios update for gigabyte HD7950 ! - Page 49

Clear now - mine is 58.4. smile.gif

So I'm gonna be flashing my BIOS on my card. I just purchased it a couple of weeks ago, and my model is the 6+8pin power connector model (Windforce 3). I tried using both the @BIOS utility and Easy Boost, and both wouldn't let me flash to the F43 version. The one that came on the card is registering as FX0 (when I backup my existing BIOS, it defaults to that filename). Will the ATI Flash utility give me problems trying to flash to F43 like the two other programs did? They just gave me an error immediately and said it's the wrong version to flash to.

Using the default bios (FX0), my ASIC Quality is 62.1%

Default clocks/voltage are 1000/1250, and 0.95/1.25v.

Thought I would chime in here with all the ASIC quality talk. Mine is 68% and I bought my card very close to launch before the price drops. I have the F3 BIOS loaded on currently and have stock 1000/1250, and 0.95/1.25v although I have my card clocked to 1200 core and 1600 memory with afterburner using the xcl method of unlocking the clocks and nothing else. It runs perfectly and I can game the most intensive games for hours and I have never crashed - rock solid. I was upset I bought it so quickly and could have saved 100 bucks from the price drop, but seeing as all you guys are having such a hard time overclocking I guess the extra 100 bucks was worth it in the end.

To the dude that got a card with 84% ASIC - YEAH BUDDY thumb.gif OC the freaking crumpets out of that thing! biggrin.gif

F3 Bios has default voltage of 1.25? Bought my card three weeks ago for 279euros with Bioshock Infinite and Crysis 3, flashed F43 bios, im Running @ 1070/1500 @ 1.09volts rock stable, temps dont go above 64 celsius (keep in mind that i have older case with no outake vents). Only problem is voltage locked card, if u cut the total price of those two games u pay like 200e for the card, which is more than enough for gaming @ 1080p. So at the end i really dont'regret it :-)

AtiFlash will work without a problem. Just follow instructions (format usb key and make it bootable to dos, copy new bios and atiflash.exe to usb key, boot to your key and use those commands to save existing bios and then flash it with new one). It worked for me well after I solved my usb problems.

Did you reflash to other bios? What is the voltage you are using for 1100MHz of the core?

I flashed from F2 to F3 and I said I have 1200mhz in my post not 1100mhz on my core. I also stated the voltage in that post as well... 1.25v

Try and read a bit more thoroughly next time. rolleyes.gif

I had my OC stable (1200/1600) on the F2 BIOS with 1.225v, but had to manage it with afterburner and had flickering and what not so with the F3 having a default of 1.25v I don't have to regulate the voltage at all which has solved the flickering from afterburner since I don;t have to touch my voltages. thumb.gif

Well, i presume that you changed at some point this F3 bios, because as i understood it is a little bit unstable and the temps go very high with it...smile.gif Do you think that it will work flawlessly with my card wich came with F42 bios? I have it on my hard disk but i've never try it. And do you use auto fan profile or custom one?

To my understanding the F3 is only to replace the BIOS on cards that came with the F2 BIOS as they have slightly different hardware. I personally could not make a well informed comment on what to do other than that is what Gigabyte said. Also your ASIC is pretty low so I have no idea what OC you will achieve. Since our cards have dual BIOS I guess the worst thing that could happen is it doesn't work and you go to your backup BIOS and re-flash whatever you were using. Worth a shot I guess?

Hm, thanks. I'm wondering because of the same reason you mention - GB said "F2 - F3, F42 - F43"... smile.gif I tried FZ1 bios but it was very unstable and i could not achieve the same clock i can do with F43 on same voltages - 1150MHz with 1.25V. for F43 and 1100V. for FZ1. However i don't need so high clocks so for now i will pass...smile.gif
