    While looking around in google about my GPU i found some information about a BIOS-Switch.

    But i could not find it.

    I wanted to Flash this card but a Second Bios as Insurance is nice if something goes wrong.
    Anyone know where i can find it ?

    Here is what i found but i see no switch.

    Or you mean you don't have it on your card at all?

    Thanks u guys.
    Well that is a really small switch and under my desk is not so much light.
    I switched it now. but well the GPU needs a long time to boot up. i think i will flash it I can boot it with HDMI (TV) but with DVI it refuses. o_O
    If i switch back then it boots normally.

    Does anybody know which bios sapphire uses for this card ? Maybe just AMD´s Stock bios or is it a modified one ?

    Well reading my version with GPU-Z.

    https://prnt.sc/p9evuk these are my results

    My bios seems even not listed on your link. Maybe not an original. I ve bought this card as second hand maybe this guy flashed it already.
    I will try to flash the newest one.

    I think offline is the safest method. (USB)
    or is it possible with windows running ? The last time i flashed a card is years ago (Was a NVDIA 6600GT)
