These BIOSes are only recommended while using AMD XMR Miner, and only for mining CryptoNight. These BIOSes usually gives you about 10-40% better Hashrate and at the same time it also lowers your power usage upto -30%.
If your GPU is not on the list, get in touch with us to see what we can do for you.
You will need ATIFlash tool which can be downloaded from here: https://www.techpowerup.com/download/ati-atiflash/ OR http://www.guru3d.com/files-details/amd-ati-atiflash.html
When you are done flashing, its highly likely that you need to patch your drivers for windows to recognize your GPU since the BIOS no longer is Orginal. Use the AMD/ATI Pixel Clock Patcher to do so, download it here: https://www.monitortests.com/forum/Thread-AMD-ATI-Pixel-Clock-Patcher
Use ATIFlash to write BIOS to GPU. !!IMPORTANT!! ALWAYS BACKUP ORIGINAL BIOS BEFORE YOU FLASH A NEW ONE.
– Run ATIWinflash.exe as Administrator
– Select the GPU you want to flash new BIOS to. !! Important: Make sure its the correct GPU!!
– !!!!!! Save orginal BIOS to file !!!!!! This cannot be said to many times…. SAVE YOUR ORGINAL BIOS!
– Load the BIOS image you would like to write to the GPU.
– Apply Program. Allow 1 minute for the application to process the flash. If flash is OK, you will need to reboot your computer to apply the new BIOS.
– Once rebooted, before you start the miner, go to AMD Settings -> Wattman and apply reset, to ensure that you are running on this BIOS`s default settings.
– If you cannot find your GPU in Wattman, run atikmdag-patcher.exe and patch your drivers then reboot and redo last step.
