BattleSquirrel ok, whatever.


the whole bios editing stuff doesnt worth the hassle anyway.


3% in performance is nothing, if you must tamper with the drivers.

BattleSquirrel Thank you!


And will the drivers install properly?



I mean, the patcher must be run AFTER the drivers were installed, until then, the modded card isnt fully recognized.

All working fine, but i had to use the pixel patcher ( atikmdag-patcher.exe ) for the drivers to recognize the card with the new bios properly, after rebooting.


my question is: if i move this card to a newly built pc, and will be installing windows 10 for the first time, how do i make the vga driver work?


will the drivers install with the modded bios?

and if they do, must i use the pixel patcher one time, to make it work properly?


thanks..
As long as you are using a modded BIOS, you need the Pixel Patcher everytime you install GPU drivers.

GabCar Hello, i am working on a second, way cheaper rx580 i got from taobao, since i could not fit my nitro card to work at my intended limit. I am building a very small gaming machine and i need to get the best efficiency possible. It seems to be an used mining GPU as seen on the memory straps copied from the 1500mhz entry in the bios. The situation is the same : neither voltage offset of -50 nor manual entries in the voltage table (i would try 1050mv at 1286mhz) give me any performance gain. Sadly AtomTableResize is not reading my bios, even the 512kb image i can save with atiflash. I hex edited the offset and max voltages (and also enabled silent fan and lowered memory voltage, wich helped a tiny bit with scores) but i cannot find manually my asic table to copy the 590 table into. I also did not find my GPU to really change a lot when i mod my power table in radeon bios editor, it is now at default 135 but on hwinfo i see it reaching around 177w for the core power and 167 for core current. The card has only one 6 pin connector and these values seem pretty off (should not exceed 150w from PCI + 6 pin).Anyone can point me to some directions to solve this?

IrvWashington Hello everyone!
I have a strange problem on XFX rx 480. I installed ubermix's timings and when testings got hundreds of thousands memory errors with 2125 mhz memory and immediately stopped it. With 2000 mhz it is ok, but i reverted to stock timings since it gives more fps on 2125 mhz. But after flashing i got 109 errors in 10 minutes, whitch resulted in roughly 3% fps drop. Actually, i remember similar behaviour with unstable memory overclocking before. Why is that?
Temps go up to 80C in 10 min Firestrike extreme run.
Also when using wattman automatic memory timings mean timings from bios and number 1 and 2 come from the driver, right?
On top of that i am able to overclock my core only with hellm's bios mod. Only 3%, but with with bios from TPU can't even manage that.
Update: nvm, i got it, with lower temp i have less errors. I need to improve my cooling to get out of 80C region.

The problem is that by some reason my modified bios doesn't apply changes i made to fan curve and GPU voltages .

The card behaves itself like I flashed it with stock bios .

Any ideas what may cause such behaviour ?

P.S I'm running all software with admin privileges , OS Win 10 . If you need additional info from me pls feel free to ask !
Do you have 'Extend official overclocking limits' enabled in MSI Afterburner?

You need to disable it as it overrides your BIOS PowerPlay table.

GabCar Hello everyone, i am struggling with my Rx580 Pulse v2 bios, i am tryn to get some undervolt / overclock on the card core but i need to save it in BIOS for Hackintosh usage and its just not working.

I oced the card with MSI afterburner and found out i can safely get to 1450 mhz on the core. However, the card is dynamically going to 1.2 v with this frequency, up from 1.119 at the stock 1366. What i want to do is try to find the lowest stable voltage for my default 1366 freqency.

This is the bios i start from > https://www.techpowerup.com/vgabios/...80-8192-180719 ( had the same behavior with the bios i pulled from the card)


Using Polaris Bios Editor , i modified the voltages and clocks in every possible way: i did try with manual input the voltage like 1100 at 1366mhz and manually adjusting the table, tried keeping the same dynamic ID upping the freq: setting 1450mhz at 65288 still results in 1.2v in windows. (default 1366 with the same dynamic value result in 1.119). I then tried the hex editing offset to -50 v , both with manual input of the voltage table an dynamic, with the same results.

Memory OCing is working fine, an so is the lowest VID editing (i can boot with 0700v at 300mhz, this value used to be 750 in the original table )

What is going on here ?
