Just with stock values (power target maxed though) this has given an improvement in Heaven for example. It now holds all of the boost throughout the bench unlike previously where it would dip by 13Mhz here and there for no good reason.

I'll feel more comfortable trying this if I can get a straight recommendation..

@Jacob, do you recommend that we update our firmware on our 670 cards, even if we haven't experienced problems of any kind yet?

Just updated mine (FTW 2GB), it was previously running 80.04.19 IIRC (the one that came with the card originally, so pretty old), so far so good, gonna try some games right now, will report back.

If it's not broken, don't fix it. If you have a problem in the future, update the firmware.

Am I advised to update my firmware on 2 670s in SLI, with no over clocking?
 
These cards run great out of the box and I have not had the need to update anything.

I flashed both my 670 FTW 2GB cards.  This is the 3rd firmware revision now on my cards.  The one that shipped on them and 2 more since.  I haven't noticed any difference in any of them.  The cards ran great when I got them, and still run great with any update I've flashed on them.  This latest update I haven't tried any benching yet, but did play a couple hours of Crysis2 with no issue's.  Didn't notice any differences between the updates to the firmware so far.

Like any bios revision or firmware update, it's up to you if you want it or not.  If you're not having any issue's, then don't update if you don't want to.  Always up to you...

Huffy puffy LOLOLOLOL .... If EVGA is stating there's stability improvements and peoples cards are breaking and under preforming there's obviously some sort of major issue... Did even read all the errors and issues people are posting about... $400-$500 for a GPU and a bunch iffy drivers and firmware updates I think **** needs to get handled... I work hard for my money and when I buy the best I expect the best ...

Not to get to far off topic, but I am having issues. Nothing that this firmware will seemingly fix, which is throttling for no apparent reason @ 68c, +90 core, 122% power target, and default volts... However, I find it rather annoying that were moving forwards with new firmware releases and they're not thoroughly tested. There's a certain excitement from seeing performance gains and improvements from driver / firmware releases. When there's 6 pages post with 80% of the people experiencing loss of performance and random issues without any response or interaction from EVGA it makes question the company.

Thanks for the BIOS EVGA. I will update my FTW with it to insure stability.
 
Note :- This BIOS can cause RSODs with GPU-Z 0.6.5 .

For all the skeptics out there, you could always save the old firmware updates and if you want to test the newest one out, you can.  If you don't like it, just flash back.  Personally, I make it a habit of always saving the last good update I used just in case I want to go back for any reason.

The model number on my card is slightly different than those show for download.  I have the:
 
04G-P4-3673-KR
 
When I try to update it just says no compatible card found to update.  I'm on BIOS 80.04.31
 
I am having problems with this card and the ASUS Z9PE-D8 WS board so was hoping this would solve it.

It's because your card isn't listed for firmware update. Don't ask me what that means for the cards that are listed...
 
Still don't understand why this file is twice as large as previous ones..

interesting, another update? will give it a shot soon, thanks Jacob.
 
does it ultimately solve the RSOD issue under vantage (when card is OC'ed and otherwise stable)?

Because it adds support for Hynix memory boards, also has some of the backbone for EFI support, but EFI is not enabled right now because of compatibility issues with some motherboards.

Not particularly, but the new version improves compatibility with some newer cards, so I would recommend trying it perhaps.
