I ran NVFLASH In Windows to flash my Strix 1660 Ti non-OC with a Strix 1660 Ti OC BIOS and it flashed fine and was stable on 3D loads but would seem to artefact on 2D loads aka browsers, so I'd like to try flashing in DOS to maybe resolve the issue?
Are your 2d artifacts like some progressing sharpening effects that cloud stuff up in a grainy whiteness? I was getting that in some 2d stuff when I enabled control panel sharpening. Disabling it took that away.
I don't think a dos flash would take away the artifacts if they are caused by lower 2d volts for the OC bios and your card doesn't like them.
But who am I to judge?
I don't have a Turing, so I don't have firsthand information, but it sounds like if you use the not64bit version of nvflash, and boot with freedos (I think I made my last jump drive with this with rufus) it should work.
Also back when I was dos flashing, my motherboards were a little weird about it. I had the drive formatted to fat32, but the motherboard 1). only liked to boot it from certain usb ports, and 2). didn't want to run nvflash from the same jump drive. I would have to boot freedos on one, then cd d: over to the nvflash jump drive and it would run from there. IDK why it did that, but I found a workaround.
I would make sure nvflash id's your card like normal first in dos though. It worked for me with Pascal, but maybe things have changed a bit.
If you haven't already fixed your problem, good luck.
