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!
Wait with flashing your Vapor-X card. It's not reference pcb and this bios is experimental.

But, I saw 290x with no reference pcb and also can use 390x bios, or not? (maybe I'm wrong...).
I thought that VAPOR X 8GB PCB is the same that uses the sapphire 390x (in general): same gpu, same memos, 2x8pin connector...

How awful...

The bios we edit is a xfx bios. I don't think there is a sapphire 390x bios somewhere that you could download. Yes a non reference pcb 290(x) can run a 390x bios. It is also possible to edit a 390 bios closer to a 290. I could edit in vapor-x voltage info and timings and such into a normal 390x bios and then it maybe would be safer. I don't know this very experimental.

mmm...understood.
So, maybe it's easier if we could get one 390x vapor bios, and adapt it to a 290x vapor?

Thanks for your responses!!! biggrin.gifthumb.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.


today i make some bench with your mod bios bro !!!!
i think is very cool and fast !! show far !!


290 trix (Hynix mem) with 3570k @ 4.500 mem @ 2200 10-11-10-27




after a run 947/1250 from firestrike



skor


1050/1250 nothing else same voltage
skor


and last 1100/1375 same voltage (artifacts freeeeeeee)


skor




thanks a lot !! i will try with bigger clocks !!
stay tuned !!

Hi. I have 2 reference cards, one with elpida memory and the other have hynix.

Sorry my language is not good biggrin.gif.

Okay i can try and make a bios for you and see if it works. I can send you pm when done

If i have a non reference model 290x and I can get a copy of the bios for the same model 390x would it be able to be modified for the 290x?
