Whoa for real?! No way, that is awesome! Zotac has definitely been rising up the ranks of my "good companies" list these days, so I hope that they come through on this one!

I am still waiting to hear back from Zotac. If they give me the BIOS, I will share it here.

I have received an email today from Dan Hoong over at Zotac. They have now denied giving me the BIOS. I guess we will have to wait for techpowerup to have a BIOS up to test. However, according to the rep at Zotac, these cards have different Micron chips on them. If this is the case, obviously a BIOS flash will not be possible. I will copy and paste his response.


Hello,

I got an answer from the HQ department regarding GTX 1080 11gbps bios. They stated that these are different models of Memory.
And a bios will not be make for the cards with the different ram chips.

so no bios is going to be released for the older cards.
But again, for the GTX1080 your going from 10.8ghz to 11ghz. A small overclock will bring the ram to that speeds.

Best regards,
Dan

I have the same issue. Whats happened is that you and I have downloaded a BIOS that is made for a different memory. If you saved your original BIOS file (which you should always do b4 flashing) then I would put it back on and enjoy your 1080, because for some reason my original bios save corrupted and now im stuck with a card that cannot run games. Good thing is that its not bricked, just wrong bios.
