So now is 2017, any news about a Pascal Bios Editor?

Really want to raise the TDP on my titan.

Volta is coming this year (rumors have it)... Makes sense... dump the 1080Ti and wrap up Pascal... don't look back... end of the year drop VOLTA....

Fingers crossed that NVIDIA understands that:

(1) They didn't make any MORE money because they locked/encrypted the BIOS with Pascal.. If anything they used it against us within marketing but modding a BIOS is AFTER they have our money.. what do they care!??

(2) MODing the BIOS (at least for Maxwell) didn't damage the cards or increase RMAs... they were gimped and we're just removing the artificial bottlenecks not HARD-modding... I've never heard of anyone damaging a GPU unless they quite honestly just didn't know what they were doing... the numbers were minuscule compared to the entire overclocking and modding community.

(3) They ABSOLUTELY made LESS money from encrypting the BIOS... even if I'm the only person in the world (and I know I'm not) that specifically did not buy PASCAL because of the inability to MOD THE BIOS (we don't need gimped cards...) they still lost my money. For just Maxwell I had (2) 980's in SLI and then bought (2) 980Ti's in SLI... I would consider myself a good customer that was lost this round.

(4) They lost a lot of green team fans in the community. It's VERY safe to say that MANY MANY people were upset/disappointed about the decision to encrypt the BIOS. It would be one thing if the cards are not gimped with the STOCK BIOS but they are.... mostly starved for power... inconsistent clock speeds... constant throttling when temps are not even high. People are now CROSS-FLASHING BIOS' from other vendors taking big risks just trying to work around artificial constraints.


Not holding my breath for Volta... but they do have a chance to redeem themselves.....

Volta to Gaming GPUs wont Come before 2018.
TI Will Come at PAST EAST.

There was a thread started long ago with some good info but was closed.

For instance https://www.overclock.net/t/1601329/gtx-1070-1080-titan-x-2nd-gen-bios-who-has-it/110#post_25319052

And Joe Dirt mentioned quite some time ago about Hulk certificates for Pascal BIOS tweaking but AFAIK no one approached manufacturers to request them using the user request option in nvflash. Possibly the mention of money and no free lunch might have had something to do with it and probably the whole idea is now on the scrap heap now due to lack of participation.

Yeah, we have to resort to this crap to get better than stock performance mad.gif :


Cross flash at your own risk. I got lucky!

Would anyone buy a race car where all performance tuning was locked by the manufacturer? No adjustments or tuning to the performance possible...

Would anyone buy that race car? Seriously...
