    Upgrade new BIOS GTX 1070 MSI GAMING X 8G

    I'm Italian. sorry for my English.
    i have a GTX 1070 MSI Gaming x 8G.

    I would like to upgrade BIOS

    But I have never updated BIOS and I'm fear.

    My Grafic Card is S/N: 602-v330-43sb160701XXXX and have Micron memory.

    i have PC with Intel i5-6500 and windows 7 64bit.

    i can upgrade bios of the GTX 1070 MSI GAMING X 8G without problem?

    I must be careful with something?
    thanks

    @alanm: the bearing will still wear faster than in upright position. We used to let radiator fans "bed in" by running them with the blades on top for a while before using them in hanging position.
    It's not like the fan would die after a week or so but it will die earlier and/or make noises due to hearing wear.

    Hello galaxy76.

    If you follow the steps correctly, there is no fear at all.

    Do you know the procedure/commands to flash a bios?

    If you do, do not forget to use the "--save"(nvflash --save backupbios.rom) command to make a copy of your current bios or you can alternatively use GPU-Z to save the bios.

    Let us know how it goes. :thumbup:

    thanks.
    One question: the new bios, what does? what has changed? you know?
    someone has run the performance tests before and after the bios upgrade?

    I have updated to the new MSI gtx 1070 bios the only thing I can tell that the temperature is lower on iddle for the rest no problems glitches or freezes so that is an good thing. for the real changes I guess the pro's here can answer that :)

    Np. :)

    I have seen some positive comments about the new bios update for various brands in this and other threads around.

    And about what change quite possibly its a fix/tweaking/workaround of that micron memory "bug/issue" which to be honest I haven't been following extensively.


    Below are some good articles on it which describe the bug/problem which in return is probably what they fixed.

    Returned a 1070 since I failed to research SLI supported games before hand. Very disappointed. Oh well, one 1070 seems to run everything in upscaled 4k at 40-45FPS which isn't horrible.

    With SLI for looks

    Yeah SLI is pretty much dying/dead (it was bad in July when I got my 1070, even worse now), same for CFX. I too wanted to go 2x1070s initially, but decided against it. Rather get a 1080Ti or what comes after, if I want more performance.

    Assuming that he can still find ones with samsung memory, the MSI 1070 Gaming X with its TwinFrozrVI cooler is among the best, if not the best from this generation. And I can back that up personally, super silent, you can barely hear it even at 70-80% fan speed, almost never over 60 degrees and a lot of OC headroom due to this.

    Nice build! Just wondering though, why not send both cards back and go single 1080 since you upscale to 4K!? You'd probably be averaging 60fps+ then? Since you where happy to spend the equivalent of a 1080 with 2*1070 give or take...

    Because the RX490 is coming out and might be better than 1080 it might even be better than 1080ti and comes out next month!

    Here are the things we know for sure, thanks to previous leaks and AMD’s own documents:

    It will target the 4K resolution and be the go-to graphics card for VR.
    It will have a bus width greater than 256 bits.
    It will be based on either a dual-GPU Polaris 10 design or Vega 10.
    Its going to be close to the price point of the Nvidia Geforce GTX 1080.

    If it will be Vega 10 I can agree I believe

    Given the current state of multi-gpu support, it better NOT be a dual-GPU card.
