Can you flash bios of a RTX 2060 to a different RTX 2060 ?

 

 

I believe that you are referring to the vBIOS of this graphics card, what version of the card do you have (please include the manufacturer and model)?


Hope this information post was helpful  ?,

So I have an RTX 2060 zotac that the power limits greyed out. I wonder if i can flash it and give me a bit more performance

all RTX 2060 models have the power limit greyed out, since turing that's been the case.

 

Also, be sure to quote us so we can see your responses.


I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

 

Primary PC:

i7 8086k (won) - EVGA Z370 Classified K - G.Kill Trident Z RGB - Force MP500 - Jedi Order Titan Xp - The venerated Hyper 212 Evo (with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G2 650W - Black and green theme, Razer branwashed me.

Draws 400 watts under max load, for reference.

 

Linux Proliant ML150 G6:

Dual Xeon X5560 - 24GB ECC DDR3 - GTX 750 TI - old Seagate 1.5TB HDD - Dark moded Ubuntu (and Win7, cuz why not)

 

How many watts do I need? Seasonic Focus threadUserbenchmark (Et al.) is trash explained, PSU misconceptions, protections explainedgroup reg is bad

But when I go to Techpowerup Vbios collection, some RTXs have the power limits +abcd% not +0%

I don't know, maybe you are right  :)

Interesting, didnt know that.

 

On that note, i have a Strix 2060 and can up the power limit using asus gpu tweak (i think to like 120% or so, not sure havent tinkered with it in a while). I do remember when doing that that hw monitor indicated max wattage  went up by 20-50w depending on load type. Never kept it in use though as even though it would boost just 50mhz higher it wouldnt sustain it due to temps and thus falling back to 1900 and thus figured i was better of at 2050mhz sustained.

 

But now i wonder if my observations where just coincidence after your statement?

Aside from it being possible to reflash, and regardless of turing allows it at all or not, ask yourself the question if running the vrm on the custom design beyond its design limits is a good idea, especially considering that the cooling solution was not designed to cope with the additional heat.

 

Combinarion of these two dont bode well for any noticeable gain vs the extra consumption / noise it woukd bring, aside of the risk of possibly bricking the card if it doesnt pan out well.

 

In short: id advise against it, and dont think your missing out on noticable performance gains.
