I ran the update on mine and it said that my 1080 needed it but now when I reboot windows, it tells me that the driver failed to load and windows was using its own basic display driver instead.  Did a safe mode DDU and reinstallation of 397.93 and windows 10 still tells me that the driver failed to load.
 
Edit.. when I go to the device manager and look at the driver details, about half the listed files are in the Nvidia Corp folder, so it seems that it is using at least some of the driver files I installed.

It sounds like the firmware update went wrong somewhere in the process.  Are you familiar with downloading BIOS ROM files and using NVFlash to update the firmware?  I suggest you either perform the steps yourself -- if you are comfortable -- or contact EVGA for assistance.

Downloaded NVFlash.  Where do I get firmware files?
 
edit... Hmmm the GUI isn't neanderthal friendly.  Might have to look up a how-to.
 
Edit2.. Found the walk-thru and did a trial run.  Just need a firmware file.

The easiest way to obtain the proper BIOS file is to contact EVGA.
https://www.evga.com/about/contactus/
https://www.evga.com/support/ticket/support.aspx
 
Techpowerup.com has BIOS dumps and I found the following one, but it does not appear to be the correct BIOS for your card.  Proceed with caution.
https://www.techpowerup.com/vgabios/192846/evga-gtx1080-8192-170421
^It appears to be improperly labeled for a -6283 card instead of a -6583 card.  I didn't find a closer match, though.
 
I would recommend contacting EVGA.

I uninstalled xoc, rebooted, and reinstalled xoc, and that seems to have solved the problem.

Hmm. Not having issues, so I'm not updating mine.


Chicken.lol

If it ain't broke, don't fix it. 


I am the kind of person who would fix it now since if I didn’t I would run into the problem
In the future maybe after the graphics card gets passed to my parents or friend and have to look into why it’s got a problem and spend a bit trying to track down the fix.

That's kinda how I am.  I like to be up to date with the newest revisions.  My display is a 7 or 8 year old 1080P DVI.  Luckily it worked out.

Updated 1080TI FTW, it is just FW, BIOS stays the same as you have, OEM or not.
No issues so far. 
Why this topic is not in stickies?

Just a quick heads up if your running DP v1.2 you can do this update without any of the work arounds. Everything else applies if your connected to a DisplayPort 1.3 / 1.4 monitor. I'm future proof for DP and 1.4 Monitors with my EVGA 1080 Ti's now.




"If you are ---> currently experiencing a blank screen or hang on boot" ---> "with a DP 1.3 or 1.4 monitor"

That is when the "extra steps" ---> workarounds are required ---> in order to run the tool, (so you can see the display to follow the steps)

I too am all about keeping software and drivers up to date (I set aside time to actively look) but firmware I stop to think is it worth the risk unless it's something like an network router.

Ok so I am reposting my original question here as my thread got locked I guess cause I did not see this thread anywhere:
I just wanted to know is EVGA planning on updating the firmware for 1080 Ti FTW3 Elite cards??
 
I am starting to see reports on some gaming forums I subscribe to, of a fairly recent firmware update for Nvidia cards.
https://www.nvidia.com/object/nv-uefi-update-x64.html
 
What interests me in this is I am seeing some reports come in reporting a nice improvement in performance in VR. Not because I am having any issues.
 
Of course I have the EVGA 1080Ti FTW3 Elite card, so my question is does EVGA plan on releasing a firmware update for their custom cards based off of this?

From what I understand this is not an evga (or any other manufacturer) specific update, it's Nvidia firmware for their hardware.
So, install the updater software (you've looked above) and run it. It will decide if your GPU needs the update.

I've done mine, the FTW3. And as far as I can tell made no difference, but I don't suppose it will unless you have the effected display port versions.

Ok thanks, I was concerned it might mess up my fan controls for my FTW3 but sounds like it does not.
If I get brave I will give it a try lol.

It's a very specific update, only concerned with display port, so doesn't have anything do with other aspects, unless Nvidia are being stealthy about something.

Yeah that is what I am reading as well, although there are others reporting increased VR performance ( Rift connects via HDMI).
So I am really not sure, may wait to hear more reports before trying this.

I own a GTX 1080 FTW and upgraded my system with a new mainboard (ASUS ROG Strix Z690-A with 12900K) and now I'm having this issue. Already performed the Nvidia-Update but nothing changed, still black screen during boot (no BIOS showing) until Windows is booted. With my old board (ASUS ROG Strix Z490-F and 10700K) it worked fine, had BIOS screen without Nvidia Update. Might this be a new problem with newer BIOS versions? Any suggestions or solutions? Other people having similar problems?

I would contact EVGA to see if they can help with a different bios. If the bios updated recently you might want to see if the DP cable is certified as that can always cause issues also since a lot of lesser quality cables can be sources for the monitor getting the signal.

Thank you for your fast reply. Used monitors are 2 ASUS TUF VG27AQ, DP cables where supplied with monitors. It all worked well with my old mainboard, problems occur since switching to new mainboard. I also tried another cable, DP cable works fine when using the onboard graphics from mainboard. Already did a Video BIOS update I could find on EVGA homepage (Version 86.04.3B.00.84). How should I contact EVGA?

Finally could solve my problem by installing the Nvidia Update a second time . Maybe the EVGA BIOS update has overwritten the previous changes from the first time updating with the Nvidia Tool.
