    I'm sure people here are smart enough to figure it out but once again Asus update tool doesn't work, "Your graphic card no need to update VBIOS!".
    I had to 7zip the .exe and use the Testini.txt and GPU-Z > Advanced > NVIDIA BIOS > Message, to find out which .rom I had to use with nvflash, otherwise as far as their trash tool is concerned I'd never need an update or get Resizable BAR support which I have now according to NVCP System Information.

    Asus 3080 TUF OC here, I don't if others are having this no update needed problem but even worse I've seen others with Asus 3080's getting their card bricked by the tool improperly updating to wrong BIOS.

    Good job Asus not being able to make a simple tool!
    When it's doing something this important and frankly quite simple you would think you would be able to make sure it works

    the BIOS that was made available with GALAX and only for cards (GAINWARD) from China?

    Had this same issue. Turns out their update tool will not work for users without GPU Tweak II or III installed. Nonsense.

    Nvidia Surround is broken with this driver, every time I reboot my PC the colors are extremely bright.

    Turning surround off and on resolved this issue after boot.

    Can anyone confirm if they experience this?

    I like GeForce experience besides if I try it in the control panel, cyberpunk won't start either.

    Surround 3x PG279Q here - all looks normal to me. Colours look the same and none of the sliders in NVCP or Windows seem to have changed. ICC profile screwiness?

    Same card, and mine worked fine for whatever that's worth, are you sure you didn't accidentally use the old v2 updater? Earlier today it wasn't listed under "BIOS & Firmware" (only the old updater was), for some reason, and was only under the "Drivers & Tools" tab instead.

    Asus did troll somewhat though; the BIOS version/number is identical to the old one. I asked a friend who has a Strix 3090 OC, and it's the same for him, the BIOS version # was not changed.

    No I didn't, but the V2 tool didn't work either when I tried to update using it in December, I had to extract the BIOS and do it manually.
    The BIOS message definitely changes, and is what you need to use along with the Testini.txt in the .exe to figure out what .rom you're supposed to flash to.
    The tool is simply incapable of detecting what BIOS my card has it seems, and just says no need to update. SoulsCollective said apparently you need GPU Tweak installed?

    I didn't pay attention to the message, the version # should change for such an important BIOS change, Asus are weird. I haven't heard of GPU Tweak before, or if I did I forgot. Out of curiosity I'd switch the BIOS on the card to the 2nd one and see if the tool works on that. Stupid question, but you were on the stock BIOS before attempting to update right?

    For updating to this BIOS I was on the BIOS released on the Asus site on 12/14/20 [BIOS Message 94.02.42.00.AS26, Performance BIOS], which I manually updated to from whatever older BIOS the card had before/came with. I haven't bothered updating the quiet BIOS this time and I don't really care to switch to it and do so cause that's not the one I want to use but that is currently 94.02.42.00.AS27.

    Testini.txt shows this:

    The tool is just garbage, it doesn't work.
    I have it updated though so I don't really care about this, thankfully everything needed can be found if you extract it

    The issue never occurs straight after a driver or client update, it occurs after shaders have built up.

    The following article shows which platforms we officially support ReBAR:
    https://www.nvidia.com/en-us/geforce/news/geforce-rtx-30-series-resizable-bar-support/

    Some motherboards manufacturers may add unofficial ReBAR support through a BIOS update. It may or may not work with our GPUs. For the best experience, we recommend the platforms we have tested and validated which are listed in the article.

    We recommend only updating the firmware if your PC is configured to support ReBAR. This means disabling Compatibility Support Module (CSM) in the motherboard BIOS and making sure your hard drive is formatted as GUID Partition Table (GPT) partition. Be aware, if your hard drive is partitioned as Master Boot Record (MBR) and you try to convert it to GUID Partition Table (GPT), you may end up losing the contents on your drive.
