What does this bios increase the power target to? 3080 FTW Beta was 450W, I would imagine this is 500W?

3090 FTW3 - OC BIOS - No display adapters were found that are compatible with this update.
 
All monitoring software is turned off. Using Nvidia 456.98 (Latest hotfix). Windows 20H2 update (the one that came out within past 24 hours).
 
 

 
Edit: Looks like BIOS is ONLY for Ultra (3987 part number) ATM.

Can we leave the normal bios the lower power target and just flash the OC bios?  So basically we have a switch normal (low power) OC (new high power)?

I ran it from an elevated command prompt (admin mode for cmd) for the OC VBIOS - no issue. 456.98 drivers, Windows 10 2004.
 
Right click it and run as administrator - that should do it.

Is yours the non ultra version?  BIOS might only be for 3090 FTW3 Ultra flavor.

Make sure you are on an EVGA 3090 VBIOS and not another one ;)

24G-P5-3985-KR

I guess I am blind and didn't read the above. Is it ONLY for ultra and not regular FTW3? :(
 
Edit: Going off the download file name, 3987 vs 3985 (mine).  It appears it is ONLY for ultra atm.

@Jacob I pulled the trigger too fast and 100% didn't read, just saw 3090 FTW3. 90% of your job is solving basic reading comprehension problems my bad :( I can't wait till the non-ultra drops!
 
@arestavo what are the gains like? Is Port Royal able to average over 2060 MHz now?

Cool. Kingpin should be 580 to 600w. 😁

All these New OC bios releases along with my continuing component/software problems I have encountered is causing me to re-evaluate my present MB/Graphics Card choices. 
 
One RTX 3090 Kingpin now definitely appears like only way to go.

Do we have to put bios on the card or can we just do the oc bios and leave the normal one?

No gains on air for me with the limited amount of testing that I was able to do before work. I don't have time to clean boot and dial in an OC, so I just tried my standard +150 +750 & clocks and power draw according to afterburner were the same in port royal (~1950 MHz and 420 watts). I didn't get a golden chip, so others will likely see more benefits on air - which is why I am waiting for that hybrid kit.

Same here but I think something is off...there should be significant gains as the power target was the primary bottleneck. Neither power nor temps raised at all during my tests with the power slider maxed...that shouldn’t be possible.

There are many factors that limit boost clock. Once you overcome the Power Target limitation, Voltage and Temps will be the next.
