This is what GPUID detected.


same as my card i flashed the bios shows.
1376x4=5504 or 1376=11,008 so its running 11Ghz memory


So my GPU is good to go then?


yep if your seeing 1376 it means the memory was bumped up.




Interesting.  I flashed the slave with the new primary to test with on my 1080 FTW2 and it still shows 1251MHz for memory in GPU-Z.  However, the bios version shows 86.04.38.40.81, which I believe is the new firmware.


did you uninstall your drivers and reisntall them also reset any profiles in your gpu overclock tools.




I did not reinstall or reset anything after the bios update. Before the bios update I had not tinkered with anything in PXOC and everything should be default.  Regardless, good suggestions.  I will try uninstalling and reinstalling the drivers and PXOC tonight.  Thanks

I'm good, someone pointed out to me where to find the updated 11 Ghz.

I finally went through the process of DDU, reinstall driver.
I did not reset my precision profile.
It now dials down to 253 gpu, 405 mem at idle.
 
Thanks for the extra push.

Any hopes of seeing this on Founder's cards? Do the FE's run different memory chips?

Has anyone successfully flashed a SC with the new BIOS?  I have mine under a EK Fullcover block, seeing mention of a HC FTW working w/ it.

It also runs on the FE Referece-Board with Accelero Mono Plus Cooler.
Thumbs up for this BIOS!
Without OC ~1970 MHz Core Clock and with OC (without rising the Voltage) up to ~2130 MHz.
More isn't stable :-)

On my 2nd Inno 3d GTX 1080 TwinX2 does it work without any Problems.
It has the FE-Layout ;-)

I can confirm this new bios does not work on the EVGA FTW GTX 1080 card.  When I tried to flash it, I got incompatable device error and the process then stoped with no harm done to the card.  I don't see how anyone is saying they flashed any of the original EVGA 1080 cards with one of these bios's.
 
BTW, I have my memory overclocked already so that its completely stable at 11,112.  Higher than the new bios will allow.  I'd suggest just overclocking the memory if you really want the performance gains the new bios could offer.

flashed no problem to my 1080 ftw hydro  copper no errors maybe they changed the flasher recently.  New bios does something with timings also not just a overclock of memory my card will run 11ghz overclocked but i get more fps using the bios vs just overclocking memory.

Just tried flashing my 1080 FTW ACX and it didn't work.  What does GPU-Z report your new BIOS version as bal3wolf?

No luck here on my original FTW. The flasher doesn't view it as an applicable card, so it doesn't give the option to proceed.

Yeah, that's what I tried. I even tried extracting the exe to see if there was a hidden .rom in there but no luck. I also tried HxD but no HW IDs in there that I could see to edit and the .rom isn't on the techpowerup vbios database yet.

i wonder why some of us can flash it and others cant i can dump the rom with gpuz just dont know if im allowed to, might be up to what bios you tried to flash also.

As 1080 FTW edition owner, I demand a bios that fits for this card. I have the pads applied on my memory, I think deserve bios for this card.

If the original cards could support it, I'm sure they would have a bios out for it.
More than likely, the early RAM modules can't support the higher speeds. Even the current iCX cards aren't guaranteed to run at 11Ghz memory speeds.

The early RAM modules and the current RAM modules for the GTX 1080 are the same. 
 
I guess they are just afraid of a massive RMA's of failing cards for these who will update bios brainlessly without applying the thermal pads. well, they can add a warning notice next to the bios update about the pads. I really want this, As a customer I think I deserve it. if not, this is a real shame for EVGA.

Looks like original early 1080 FTW owners have been given the short end of the stick again...This really leaves a bad taste in the mouth.

Classy owners got the short end of the stick too. Don't get me wrong, it's totally awesome that EVGA is doing this. It's not very often or even ever that an AIB offers a free performance upgrade to exiting hardware and to make it so easy nonetheless. I just wish they would spread the joy to all cards with the same ICs since it doesn't seem to be a limitation of the chips. Heck, these are all dual bios cards, so there is literally no risk. All they would have to do is say that there is no guarantee of stability with the new bios, which they already kinda did say.

on overclock.net forum, cross flashing pascal bios has been discussing for so long.
you have to use some special modded version of nvflash to flash pascal bios. of course the evga official tool wont allow you to cross flash bios... 
 
but i dont recommend doing this as probably on icx cards the vram is "d9vrl" 11gbps 1.35v chip rather than old acx cards with "d9txs" 10gpbs 1.35v chip.
by the voltage suggested, you shall understand why only icx cards has this bios update.
 
otherwise, the second handed prices of the acx cards are killed further
