Hello Eze2kiel, I'm pretty sure Sajin is saying that you already have the latest bios and there is no need to update.:)

Many thanks dlbsyst.
You're welcome.;)

hello,
 
1st post on the forum
 
I am the new owner of a 1080FTW hybrid bought just 2 weeks ago from the US (I live in Japan)
 
i have managed to get the card memory controller to OC to 12Ghz, stable in Heaven benchmark and heavy Gaming sessions.
 
using MSI afterburner for overclocking purpose, the Memory frequency slider wont go any further than 1,000Mhz anyway
 
So I guess flashing this BIOS wont do anything better for me right?
 
thanks
 
Olivier

If you update your vbios you'll be able to possibly push your card to 13 GHz on the memory.

Re: EVGA GeForce GTX 1080 FTW2 and SC2 – OPTIONAL 11GHz BIOS Update Available Now 2018/05/28 17:11:25 (permalink)
thanks for the quick feedback, much appreciated.
 
would be great if the memory could scale that way but I have an experience with a ZOTAC 1080 AMP extreme+(with a 11Ghz module hardware) that I could only OC to 12.2Ghz so I am not sure if the FTW would allow me to go that far.
 
I am going to do some sanity check before flashing anything, following the post from Juliusdigital on this thread.Just conscious that my card is a FTW not FTW2 or SC2 so I am taking a gamble here if I proceed, although dual Bios on this card helps of course.
 
I have reached Heaven scores above 3200 at 127fps avg as well as above 25,000pts graphics score in firestrike, all that with temps around 50degC so the card is a beast already but you know, temptation....
 
anyway, any input again is much appreciated

Definitely a gamble, but who knows it might work. Let us know how it goes.

Re: EVGA GeForce GTX 1080 FTW2 and SC2 – OPTIONAL 11GHz BIOS Update Available Now 2018/05/28 23:41:49 (permalink)
sure but I am going check BIOS versions currently on the card before anything else, they might be similar to what I see addressed on this thread for FTW2/SC2?
 
also how the EVGA dual Bios works?excuse my ignorance, its the 1st time I have the card with suhc feature.
 
If I flash the FTW2 BIOS file under say the primary bios and the card will get corrupted, I would be able to boot anyway from the secondary BIOS
 
but does that mean I wont be able to mess around with the primary Bios and will have lost teh DUAL BIOS feature?
 
Or would that be possible to recover the primary BIOS from NVflash and how?
 
sorry if that sounds like noob questions but again 1st time I am dealing with such feature
 
thanks

Yes, that is correct. To recover the primary you would simply boot the card from the secondary, and reflash the primary vbios using nvflash. 
 
Note: You'll need to move the vbios selector switch from the secondary position to the primary position while inside windows before flashing with nvflash.

Re: EVGA GeForce GTX 1080 FTW2 and SC2 – OPTIONAL 11GHz BIOS Update Available Now 2018/05/29 17:54:42 (permalink)
took the plunge last night,it worked.
 
switched the card to slave Bios and flashed the version seen on this thread,page 12, so I am the owner of a FTW2 card now lol)
 
I have had the card for only 2 weeks and was only OCing from the master Bios, 2 things I confirmed was that I could now increase the power target to 130%, instead of 120% with the master BIOS
 
and the fan curve is more aggressive out of the box, read loud.
 
Funny thing though is that I can now lower the fan speed to 16% whereas it was lcoked at 56% with the FTW Hybrid master BIOS.not sure if it is related to a slave Bios feature or this FTW2 BIOS variant?
 
OCing wise, the new BIOS gave me a little more headroom. I could step up from the 12Ghz I was hitting with the FTW hybrid Bios to 12.4Ghz with that new one. its 200Mhz more than I could achieve with my ZOTAC Extreme+ so I was calling it a result
 
but obviously, effect on FPS increase is not massive, 1 fps gained in heaven benchmarks and a couple of avg fps in Project Cars2. temps remain quite comparable, around 50degC with Heaven and 47-48degC in PC2
 
was it worth it performance wise, yes maybe in some circumstances for example when I am south of 60FPS on my triple 1080p monitor set-up with some games maxed out and of course it is fun to run OCing
 
happy camper anyway, best 1080 card I have owned so far, even ahead of the ZOTAC and MSI GAMING X I had on both performances and noise/temps ratio

I know Sir.
 
just out of curiosity, what is the best memory OC people have achieved wit this new BIOS?

I believe I have inherited of a Golden Micron VRAM, again comparing to what I had achieved with my ZOTAC and MSI cards using GDDR5X
 
with my OC, I could get beyond 400Gb/s bandwith which is something I had never achieved with the 2 other cards

Hello, my configuration is ASUS M10H 8700K, 1080FTW2. Why do I run you to upgrade BIOS?
The program is upgraded to BIOS. After YES, the error is displayed. It quickly exits. The graphics card type is 6686.. Can you give me a solution? Thank you

Hello, your first page on the first page BIOS, after the brush entry, the memory frequency is locked in the 405M, other 11G BIOS, such as 8604660080 NVFLASH brushes do not go in, how to do?

Hi, new owner of FTW2.  I tried flashing the bios today and nothing is happening. Screen just blacks out for a few seconds and beeps then goes back to the desktop but nothing is happening. My current version is 86.04.60.40.82

Hello.  I have the SC2 6583.  I update the clock and it showed 1367mhz for proper 11ghz speed.  When I moved it to a new comp, the clock speed went back down to 1251mhz.  Does the speed update require the latest nvidia driver?

The recent firmware update that supposed to fix a bug with Display Port 1.3 and 1.4... will it have the overclocked memory specifications?

Are the BIOS in the first post of this thread the most recent ones? Is it any better than just manually overclocking? If I update and any issue occurs, can I revert it to the original? How?

Kids, I've the stock BIOS that came in the VGA.
I already post photos in the previous messages.
I've the memories in 11GHz.
Well... By setting the BIOS in secondary by turning off the PC and moving the switch of the VGA, I notice that being in Windows the screen blinks in black every so often.
This from what I see isn't normal.
With the primary BIOS, it doesn't happen to me.
In this case, how do I re-reflash the two BIOS and avoid this?
Problems with temperatures aren't because I have a full cover waterblock.

You'll need to reflash the slave vbios using nvflash.

I already tried to update the BIOS again with the steps explained here, but it throws protection error.
What would be the right steps?
At the date what BIOS do I have to download? Since mine already came factory with 11 Gbps.
