Just wondering why the card still remains 290 when you flash it with 390 Bios?

I remember back in the early days of this thread/mod, Firestrike detects a modded 200 series as a 300 series. But they have updated their hardware detection scheme later.

Hardware detection also, as reported, gives the 300 series cards the edge in some games even when clocked the same and not saturating the 4GB memory deficit against the 200 series cards due to some special driver aids.

You know what happens when you flash a 290X BIOS to a locked 290 card right?

The application might be using PCI Revision ID to detect if the ASIC is either "Hawaii" or "Grenada". "Hawaii" has PCI Rev. ID of 0, while "Grenada" has 80. This value comes from the GPU fuses, so it cannot be changed. That has nothing to do with the actual silicon revision either as "Hawaii" and "Grenada" are exactly the same stuff.

If the new stuff is available on "Grenada", it will work just as well on "Hawaii". Might require editing the driver .inf file thou wink.gif

My search-fu is failing me, but has anyone tried flashing these BIOS to a Gigabyte 290/390 to unlock the voltage control?

All 290 cards have "voltage control" since the Hawaii / Grenada requires SVI2 voltage interface.

Gigabyte locks the voltage. Only power limit can be turned up slightly. Which is why I asked if these BIOS will unlock voltage control.

What are you using to adjust voltage? I've tried Afterburner and OC Guru2. Neither of which will allow me to adjust voltage on my 390X G1 Gaming

you need to unlock voltage control in msi afterburner but nearly any program can mess with 290 voltage smile.gif
