Quick BIOS question.

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
So, I got another 5870... And I was just curious that would it affect performance if the BIOS on the two cards are different. Should I even bother updating the alder one? Im using a XFX reference model and a Gigabyte 5870.

As long as the cards are the same model then you should have no trouble running them together. The BIOSs of the cards are not responsible for making them communicate with each other. That's the drivers' job.
