Ethereum update: XFX RX 580 8GB BIOSs
So there are multiple variants of the XFX RX 580 cards. That’s fine, but where it starts getting a bit confusing is that two cards of the same varient and same P/N can have different BIOSs, for example.
The clocks, voltages, memory clocks, straps are all identical. I took the two BIOSs and tried to compare, and found 11 lines of Hex that are different. But I couldn’t figure out what the differences are.
Either BIOS seems to get the GPU to boot to OS. But, at least for me on this specific card, the 199144 BIOS(look at URLs) gives me a driver issue on Windows while the 200596 doesn’t.
There is no unique identifier that I’ve found to figure out what BIOS goes to what card. I understand some of you are going to say, backup your BIOS before doing anything, well I have too many cards and it’s all gotten shuffled.
Anyone know of a unique identifier for these cards to find the specific BIOS?
