Question About Sapphire 7970 Vapor-X Dual Bios

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
So.. My new card has a dual bios, with a button that changes between them. My question is... what is the purpose of this? Is there a way to save my overclock into one of the bios so that the button switches between stock and OC?

The dual BIOS switch is so in case you modify or flash one of the BIOS, you have a backup. As for saving your overclock, I'm not entirely sure since I've never owned a dual bios card. Best of luck.
