I was hoping to be able to back up the factory bios before installing that beta 450W bios.
Is there a tool or utility to help out with that?
Or at least somewhere I can download the factory bios(es) just in case I want to roll back?

(Btw what is the proper pluralization of Bios?)

Thank you :)

    https://www.techpowerup.com/download/nvidia-nvflash/
     
    you'll want to open the command prompt as administrator, then navigate to the directory where you have Nvflash, and use this command:
     
    nvflash64 -b name.rom
     
    Name can be anything you want it to be. Just keep that file socked away for when you want to reflash it using this command:
     
    nvflash64 -6 name.rom
     
    And I'm guessing the plural of BIOS is BIOSes.
     
    Edit: there is a database of VBIOS which includes EVGA cards here (it may, or may not, have the exact VBIOS that you have on your card): https://www.techpowerup.com/vgabios/?architecture=&manufacturer=EVGA&model=RTX+3080&version=&interface=&memType=GDDR6X&memSize=10240&since=

    Thanks for the help!

    I found out before I saw your reply that GPU-Z can dump your BIOS ROM easily and quickly also.
    Will make sure to add your info to my notes :)

    I also found that BIOS database, but the way the version numbers are I couldn't be sure which version(s) correlated to my actual stock BIOS. I didn't want to download a BIOS and then later find out it's an outdated version or something.
