Thank you for that news Sincreator. I'm waiting for a bios release for my Zotac GTX1070 amp edition.
The BIOS update for Palit / Gainward GTX 1070 has been confirmed to fix the Micron stability issues. Also gives you higher Powertarget now.
But BIOS update has now been pulled cause of some users we´re stuck at 99% during the vBios update process. A new BIOS update tool will be available soon! I had no Problems with vBios update...flashed the new and the old Bios more than five times without any problems.
MSI have told me the new bios should be available in the next 2 weeks
Hello Hilbert. The Palit(Gainward) BIOS is still not available. I missed this news by two days and ever since there was no update on their page.Suggest to delete the link and put it on hold as it is still not available..Either way thanks for this news.Was curious why is this card (Super jet stream) so sensitive about OC on memory. The GPU goes to a wonderful 2068MHz stable but as soon as I put more than 200MHz on the MEM it's checkerboard all over even without OC on GPU. One has to wonder how many CENTS have the AIBs saved by buying Micron instead of Samsung chips.
My gigabyte g1 gaming works fine micron mem.
I did a +300 mem oc and run some tests also played mafia with no issues.
I didn't go more than +300 though.
Still no bios from Gigabyte. Release schedule was this week and it's already Friday. Hope it comes out soon.

FINALLY PALIT has released new BIOS today!!!
Haven't tested yet as am still in work but wonder if I can squeeze the card a bit more afterwards..
Weird, just tried to update the bios on my Palit 1070 super jetstream and it doesn't work.
Either get's stuck on loading bios or it prompts me that "bios update not needed or card not supported"
@kosh_neranek, have you managed to update yours ?
Nevermind I fixed it and in case someone else faces this issue here's what I did.
So the thing was that on my card I had the oldest bios basically the first version the card was ship with 86.04.3B.00.3B. For some reason the latest bios that Palit uploaded on their website didn't recognized my card with the current bios and gave me the message that "No need to update or the card is not supported".
Downloaded most recent previous bios VBIOS Version:86.04.3B.00.94 from TechPowerUp, flashed my card and after that applied the latest bios from Palit and it worked, I'm running now 86.04.50.00.51.

So disappointed in Gigabyte, first they deny the using of Micron vram when you can track obviously on their site the F11_beta version released on 08/04 clearly stated supporting Micron memory (that was 86.04.26.00.56 bios version though). Then they said they will fix it within a week but no progress until last Friday. Just because nobody was complaining about the issue doesn't mean you can lie in front of the customers' faces, gigabyte. I have the Micron vram btw, and I can confirm the oc result would never be stable even at 100/400.
Welp... Dont think I will ever buy a PNY product in the future.
Finally post #5!
Going to send this video again to PNY tech support and hope they release something within the month. If not im just gonna send this card back cuz this is maddening! my GTX 680 never gave me issues like this.
I came here to say pretty much the exact same thing as you. I couldn't believe when Gigabyte stated they didn't use Micron memory when my GTX 1070 had it and they had previously posted BIOS downloads for it. I knew it was an omen of bad things to come. Then they stated it would be ready in the following week which came and went with nothing. I hope I'm wrong but I have a feeling it's just going to fade into the background and I'll regret my choice this entire GPU tier. Oh well, I know which manufacturer will not get my business for my next GPU purchase.
PNY is the same company as Palit and Gainward I think. I would suggest that you email their tech support directly
