Becomes a RX 580 with a BIOS change your Radeon RX 480

yesterday we talked about new graphics cards AMD Radeon RX 580 and 570 and the differences with their previous generation. In fact, performance level are separated by just two or three pictures per second as much, but some enthusiasts with an overdose of Audacity wondered if it would be possible to transform the 470 and 480 in 570 and 580 . That led to experimentation using official BIOS, and early reports indicate that the conversion has been successful, always remembering jumps in voltage and temperature that may result.

get more than hardware existing is something PC users will never resign. A bit of overclocking here, a tweak there, and the system receives a «free upgrade» . Of course, the process has its risks, that they need to be evaluated carefully, but if you apply some modesty at the time of search results, everything should be fine. The latest generations of graphics cards have been particularly responsive to changes in frequency and voltage. Manufacturers did not hesitate to launch models with more robust cooling solutions and protections of «dual BIOS» allow revert any negative effect smoothly. With those aspects in favor, owners of more advanced variants of the cards Radeon RX 480 and 470 RX decided to take the next logical step: turn them into Radeon RX 580 and 570.

before and after. Note subvendor, Device ID, frequency and bandwidth changes.

Light optimizations in Silicon enabled AMD to deliver higher frequencies, however, the rest of the parameters are intact. What prevents users achieve these same frequencies with a traditional overclocking? Sometimes the obstacle is the own BIOS but the final numbers depend on each OEM. In the first case, the user of TechPowerUp Tonybonjoby took a Sapphire Radeon NITRO + RX 580 BIOS (8 GB) and performed a flash on your XFX RX 480 (también de 8 GB) . The card was subjected to stress tests, and works with the new frequencies [19459005](a las que se suma un overvolt de 24 mV) without errors or artifacts. Brands crossing makes the entire process more risky, but support dual BIOS reduces any correction to the change of position in a switch.

on Guru3D, BigMaMaInHouse forums transformed his Sapphire NITRO + RX 470 on a Sapphire NITRO + RX 570. The rest of the users are still experiencing with editors of BIOS, but the successes of direct flash make slightly more tempting mod account. As always, the recommendation is caution. The hardware is not exactly economical, and the last thing we want to see are reports of cards turned into bricks.
