Good day guys,

 

i just want to know if  

 

is it possible to update my MSI Radeon r9 390x 8gig gaming's VBIOS? because i never had tried to update my hardware. And technically speaking, it is the essential to the hardware too, isn't it.?

-is there any website that i could download the bios file(latest bios files for my Card)

 

thank you so much

None that i know of, some vendors have tools to flash the BIOS. Really, this isnt a thing you should do though. Unless you are experiencing some critical errors with your GPU that you think a BIOS flash will solve, then flashing vBIOS isnt really a good idea.

because it is essential to the hardware. updating the firmware is also a need for the hardware right? but i'm also skeptical for that thought so i consulted you guys if whats the best..

 

so everyone.

 

thank you for the advice :)  guys. its really best i should consult to Linustechtips first. before everything go fucked up. 

it a great help..

There an age old saying, "if it's not broken don't fix it". The odds of having any issues with the default Vbios is basically none. There is a reason why nvidia and amd don't make it easy to mess with the vbios. Think about your calculator. Odds are, you have used he same calculator for many years now (if you even use one other than your phone) and odds are, you have never touched the firmware on it. Despite this, the calculator still can calculate 1+1 or whatever without any issues. Your graphics card is essentially the same. It will work fine with the default bios and you will never experience any issues. Any potential changes to the way the GPU functions will be handled through driver updates. 

 

Tl;dr - it is NOT necessary for hardware to have its vbios updated. In fact, it is recommended that you don't.
