Any possibility to flash this BIOS otherwise?

Sure, this will probably only work with the updated BIOS tools provided for the reviewers: http://www.legitreviews.com/amd-radeon-rx-480-4gb-versus-radeon-rx-480-8gb_183576
Maybe one of the reviewers can share them.

Have you actually pulled you shroud off and seen 8 physical RAM modules. Otherwise, from what I hear, that was only reviewer's cards that came like that and it had a BIOS switch deactivating 4GB of VRAM. The reference consumer cards should only come with 4 physical VRAM modules.

I bought an xfx rx 480 4GB on launch. I replaced the thermal paste and I saw 8 Samsung memory chips. I downloaded an xfx rx 480 8GB bios from the tech power up database but I'm not sure what flash utility I can use. Any help would be appreciated.

Same thing here, all the memory modules are sitting pretty....waiting to be flashed from a 4GB to an 8GB...but ATIWINFLASH isn't recognizing the card as a Radeon card, lol.

Oh wow, that is interesting...I will be paying close attention to this thread.

I also wonder if the chips used for RX 480's are actually the rumoured 40 CU chips, and just have AMD's usual software locks on them to disable 'faulty' CU's, would be pretty cool if something like this actually played out (Wouldn't surprise me, with the trend of the last few generations of cards).

An updated ATIFlash is included in the reviewer BIOS files:



Just need someone to share them (ATIFlash.exe would be enough).
