I just copied things over from a sapphire trix bios that i used to run on this card since it worked well for me(not the new trix bios, the old one that was closer to a reference 290). Will fiddle around with voltages and benchmark some more.

Will stick to the first bios i made for now. I will try the modded timings also and see how that works. The second i made that i was going to bench on had not enough performance and the graphics card started to make funny noises (maybe a bit too much voltage rolleyes.gif).

This bios gives me the same idle and load voltage as a normal 290 bios. I thought i would upload the bios here if someone would want to take look. UPDATE:No blackscreen under high overclock, time to tweak it a little more and see where this leads.

290x versión please? biggrin.gif. Insanity bios gave me problems, freeze my pc in 2 minutes of valley

Okay if you want it so. I can try make a 290x version and see how that works for you. If so what memory do you have?

How cool and OC cababilities will have reflashed XFX DD r9 290x ?
I have high temps and thinking to might try if its worth.
Did i made mistake dont buying Gigabyte 970 G1 ?
They have even with 20% OC cool and powerful card.

I got about 10c off with this bios (I'm on water btw). Oc cababilities are not as high as a normal 290 bios, but the 390 bios performs better, so in the end the 390 bios still performs better. There can be some issues with this bios (you have to see on your own). I have modded my own version of this bios with timings and voltage info from a regular 290 bios and for me that works great.

I'm using the old Tri-X 290 BIOS too. I'm interested to test your BIOS but I'm using Secure Boot, don't know whether that'll affect anything. How much gain in percentage you got from 290 BIOS to 390 modded BIOS, in benching (running at same clocks)?

At 947/1250 on this 390 bios i get 11 400 and on stock 290 bios it would give just over 11 000. Pretty decent considering i used the 290 timings in the 390 bios. I don't really know about the secure boot thing, i guess you have to try and see if it works. The bios i made may need voltage tweaking. I tweaked the voltages to fit my card and i don't really now what voltages other cards get, but i get the exact voltages as a 290 bios.

I tried your BIOS a while ago but wasnt able to finish an FS run. But it's not your BIOS. It's my driver.

Gotta try it later with a fresh Driver. thumb.gif

Hi to everyone!

I'm DimebagECI, forum moderator from "elchapuzasinformatico" forum, in spain.
Few days ago I was looking through our forum for a mod-bios update for my GPU, and I saw a post where they were talking about flashing the 290/x to 390/x, and some users told me that here I can download one.

I have the SAPPHIRE R9 290X 8GB Vapor-X OC model, and I want to know if anyone have the same gpu or what bios can I use (because I found bios for 4GB 290x but not for 8GB model).

I think that my PCB is almost the same that uses the 390x model. My card is that one: Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

Also, some users told me that I could ask for help to @Insan1tyOne , in order to look for a bios that work in my gpu.

Anyone have a bios that can work in a 8GB 290x gpu? biggrin.gif

Cheers!
