GTX 1070/1080/TITAN X(2ND GEN) BIOS - Who has it? - Page 35

Thread Starter 
Try using FFXIV Free benchmark @ MAXIMUM PRESET running @ 4K



* Excellent GPU stability test! Pass this 3x in a row, you're pretty much stable.

* Uses a LOT of power! A good test for any GPU's power limit.

* Generates a LOT of heat! Good for thermal testing.

* Challenges ANYONE's maximum STABLE overclock. Works your GPU(s) VERY hard! Uses many different graphical scenes to create a good collection of rendering and workload scenes. Don't be surprised if you have to lower your O/C to pass this.

* It's FREE

Sorry for asking noob questions.

Wait, we do? I can't see anything in his thread.

I just ordered a Palit Gamerock 1070 and as far as I can tell the only difference compared to the Palit Gamerock Premium is the clock of the GPU and memory.
Now chrcoluk has been so kind and shared (post #285) the bios of the premium version with us (thanks dude!).

So I guess if my GPU/memory actually work at the clocks of the premium version (I will test this with just regular driver OCing) I should be fine flashing that bios, right? Has anyone else already tested this specific combination? Also - the Gamerock features a dual bios so in case something does go wrong, I should be able to flash back the original bios again. If my PC doesn't boot with the new bios will it work to boot up with the fallback bios than switch to the "broken" bios and flash it back the original again? I guess what I'm trying to ask is, does the card actually access the bios after booting or is it save to switch between the bios versions while the PC is running?

I flashed the Palit GTX1070 Gamerock Premium BIOS to my Palit GTX 1070 Super JetStream card.
It works like a charm and is rock stable.

It gave me +38MHz (from 1632MHz) core clock and +250MHz (from 4000MHz) memory clock.

Mind that the "normal" Gamerock has lower clock rates:
1556MHz core clock
4000MHz memory clock

Silicon lottery decides if a "normal" Gamerock can handle the clock speeds of the Premium Edition.



Regarding the BIOS switch: I don't know exactly how the Palit card handles the BIOS flash but I can tell you how it was with my Gigabyte Radeon 7950 Windforce 3.
The card only loads the BIOS after a reboot. But when you boot with switch set to BIOS1 you can after that set the switch to position 2 and the flash will be applied to that BIOS2 slot.

Thanks for confirming my suspicions regarding the flashability of the gamerock. I'm well aware of the fact that it's not 100% sure the card will run stable at the premium clocks. That's why I plan on OCing via driver first to check how far I can go.

Also thanks for the info on BIOS behavior after booting. It's good to know that I would be able to fix it even if I somehow managed to mess up flashing completely thanks to the dual bios feature.

On a sidenote, as far as I understand it from the reviews I've read, there's a problem with the fan control of all Palit Gamerock and Gainward Phoenix cards that causes them to fluctuate too much between fan speeds. It's barely perceivable since the overall noise is so low, but they still promised a fix via BIOS update so I guess we might be supplied with an "official" Gamerock Premium and Phoenix GLH BIOS at some point. smile.gif

There is no fan fluctuate issues on palit cards.

Anyone with a MSI 1080 Gaming X bios here? I have a 1080 Armor and since they have exactly the same hardware (except from cooler and backplate) I believe it would be ok to flash Gaming X on Armor, right?

I have a MSI 1080 Gaming X: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/50051642/original-msi-1080-gaming-x.zip

I think that someone with more knowledge than me, should answer your question about if it's fine or not.

I can say i already flashed (only for a few days) my MSI Gaming 1080 X with a modded bios from a Asus Strix card, and i didn't have any problem (except lower performance)
Because Strix is alot (hardware) different from the Gaming X.
But if the Armor is identical to the Gaming X i think you don't have any problem.

Thank you very much!

As soon as I get home I'll give it a try. The cards are exactly the same except from cooling and backplate.

I'm really interest in how Gaming X handles power over the Armor, There may be some power delivery barriers that can be overcome using Gaming X bios on my Armor.

I'll test it and post the feedback here. Thanks!

can you upload your superjetstream bios??? I Have jetstream palit 1070 with gamerock bios,...


Thanks
