    Just read. It's pretty simple actually. If you don't have a problem with your current firmware and don't know what the new firmware does, why did you bother to update?

    F4
    NVIDIA Source BIOS Version:80.04.31.00.58 <--- this should be the newest, but it's F4
    f12
    NVIDIA Source BIOS Version:80.04.31.00.09

    WTH?

    Well ok, reading isn't one of your strenghts then obviously.

    How about this: http://www.gigabyte.com/WebPage/40/index.htm (right below the "warning" text ;) )
    You'll find this nice piece of text there:

    Fascinating, isn't it? Monkey see, monkey do.

    Great.
    Too bad this piece of info is not on the same page. ;-)

    How To Reflash BIOS? appears as a link.
    Most of the peoples that know how to flash don't even think about looking there inside.

    Like how many peoples actualy read EULA agreement.
    I would propably look inside later, but it's confusing for gurus :p

    Good, confusion is gone.

    The golden rule as always.
    If you do not encounter problems, it is recommended that you not flash the BIOS.

    Gigabyte reported the wrong version for the F12 BIOS, it's the same as the F4.

    The CRC is different and it signs on with a different message so I guess that's all the difference there's supposed to be, right? Both are based off the same Nvidia reference bios and obviously they're running different settings on top of that (whatever it is that made Gigabyte use different branches in the first place).

    Yes, I compared them with an hex editor and the differences are minimal.

    Maybe just some different timings here and there, who knows. Did you, by any chance, compare one of them to an older bios version? I made a backup but haven't checked the file versions (Nvidia version) so far.
    Maybe if we get a bios editior one day we might see what they've did.

    My card came with the F2 BIOS, as you suggested I compared it with the F4 and the differences are huge. ;)

    F4 vs F12
