my FTW2 6686 came with 86.04.66.01.80 bios and runs at 11GHZ out of the box, i submitted it to techpowerup.


i tried to flash this bios in my ftw2 with nvflash.."Id missing error" and i cant find a way to force bios flash.
I saw that the Subsystem Id for this bios is 3842 6687.My ftw2 bios has Subsystem id 3842 6686.
Any ideas?
 
Can someone upload bios 86.04.60.00.80 at techpowerup pls?i didnt save it before the flash of the 11gbps bios. :(


Flash with flag -6.

No problem. Looks like you can't do anything about that error.

Thanks! Were you able to fix the issue with the first one by flashing it back?

The stock bios worked fine after you flashed back to it right?

Also I can't seem to find the bios you uploaded to techpowerup, do you think you could send it to me? Thanks!

My card has BIOS Version 86.04.66.00.80 according to GPUZ.
 
I've got a huge memory OC already and its above 11000 with my overclock on precision (not even AB).
 
Should I update? I'm not sure which is a newer version since this one seems to be "higher" numbers in some but lacks letters in certain areas so I have no idea really.
 
Haven't flashed a GPU BIOS since back in the 6800 days where you could unlock pipelines by doing it.
 
Since I've already got the memory running a bit above 11 anyway via overclock, would this even help at all?  Would I be able to push it MUCH FARTHER past 11, or the same exact amount past it? For example if I could do this update would I then be able to push it past 12, since I've gotten mine from 10->11.x or would it still just get to 11.x?

I bought 2 ftw2 cards from cadeking before 2 weeks..Both came with 86.04.66.00.80 (10Gbps bios) and i cant flash 11Gbps and original bios of this thread because after flashing memory run at a fix price of 405Mhz.Both of the cards can run at 12000MHz memory frequency with the stock bios if i overclock memory.
2090/12000 and 2060/12000 at unigine heaven and 3dmark benchmarks.

So the cards were new? or oldies in stock? Makes me wonder,because I've read in many articles that from late April? ( I think ) EVGA has the 11GHz preinstalled in all their FTW2 & SC2
Well I'll just have to wait and see what I wiil get....

*UPDATE*
I've just finished on the phone with EVGA Tech support in regards to my EVGA GeForce GTX 1080 FTW2 DT running BIOS Ver: 86.04.60.00.80 & can confirm (according to the tech at least) the following:

1. There have been no hardware changes within the FTW2 DT lifespan so far, The memory chips are the same across all FTW2 DT e.g 10Ghz
2. The firmware update is only a memory frequency overclock, not a voltage or timing overclock
3. BIOS VER: 86.04.60.00.80 is the latest, My card was manufactured in Dec 2017, the OP firmware updates were for the older firmwares that are not in circulation due to "issues" the tech refused to get into
4. Can confirm that it is ok to downgrade your firmware to the original firmware (Original OP) and then upgrade to the 11ghz firmware (cant confirm if this works)
5. Downgrading & updating your firmware does not void your warranty
7. BIOS VER: 86.04.60.00.80 cannot be updated to run 11Ghz

If anyone has successfully updated their BIOS Ver: 86.04.60.00.8 card to run 11Ghz at stock, let us know! I need your help!

If anyone has successfully updated their BIOS Ver: 86.04.60.00.8 card to run 11Ghz at stock, let us know! I need your help!


1)I believe that it is a bios problem.It is not a hardware problem.Maybe they made a small change to a memory controller or maybe different type of memories.Micron has 2-3 different types of gddr5x.
2) I cant understand why 86.04.60.00.80 cards dont have an 11Gbps optional bios if they cant work with  (86.04.3B.40.81/86.04.3B.41.81).
3)Evga support told me 3-4 times that it is not bios related issue and something is wrong with my cards hardware.I have 2 FTW2 gtx1080 with the same issue.I am 100% sure that if i will RMA my cards the new ones will have the exact same issue.  :D
4)A SOLUTION FOR EVGA
Use bios 86.04.60.00.80 put it in a bios editor and create a new 11 Gbps bios for the new FTW2 and SC2 cards..We are here to test it :D
 
**I'm glad I bought EVGA cards cause I see a company that deals with the issues that are addressed to its customers.
    I hope that we will find a solution to this problem in near future.

What was the bios out of the box that your card had??

I was able to flash it by running DDU beforehand then restarting but that's about as far as the good news go.

After the flash, the memory speed bandwidth dropped significantly (130gbps) and the card was rendered useless so I flashed back to its original BIOS.

Back to a Manual OC I guess...

Did you flash the original first and then the 11GHz bios? or you went straight to the update version?

Yes.
From  86.04.60.00.80 couldnt install 11GHz bios directly but both original and 11Ghz bios do the same thing-->405 fix price at memory.
