RX 570 stock bios

This one seems like the right one. https://www.techpowerup.com/vgabios/191558/sapphire-rx570-4096-170306

Same device id and subsystem id,  contains elpida and hynix profiles. 

Your card has the memory boosted to 2000 mhz, from 1750... and that can cause problems in games especially if the timings are also tweaked.

 

This one should also work, but you may need to use the patcher with it : https://www.techpowerup.com/vgabios/192114/sapphire-rx570-4096-170323-1

It's for different subsystem id (nitro+ card, not pulse) and as far as I can see it's just stricter limits on power ( +-20% instead of +- 30%) and it probably has a more silent fan curve (you could check with srbpolaris the fan curves stored inside the bios)

 

You can download your current bios and flash the bios you want with the AMD Flash tool : https://www.techpowerup.com/download/ati-atiflash/

 

If the latest version doesn't work, click on "show older versions"  .. versions 2.87 and newer should work perfectly with the RX series.

 

 

 

Hi everyone, first time poster here. Got a question. So basically I bought a Sapphire Pulse RX 570 4GB version. The card was used for mining but not for a long time so I figured it was a good deal since it was cheap by todays prices. My issue is whenever I want to install drivers it wont install properly since I believe it has a mining bios on it. For now im using the atikmdag-patcher-bios.exe to make the gpu have working drivers and I can use it to game and so on but since the newest drivers for the GPU, that patcher does not work for me anymore. So I would like to if its possible and not too hard to flash the stock bios so I can install drivers normally and use the GPU without any issues. Below is my GPU-z attachment.  It seems to use Elpida memory(I saw people mention that a lot about those) and if I could get a step by step guide on how to flash the stock bios it would be really appreciated. Hope you can understand what im asking since english is not my native language. Thank you in advance!

The gpu-z screenshot  is with the atikmdag patcher applied.

Well first of all, does it have a bios switch? Should be along the top edge of the card near the power connector if so.

If not, go to the TechPowerUp bios database, they have several for Sapphire 570’s in there. Hope this helps!

Is it plugged in? Is it turned on? Are you sure?

Once you find the bios, download it and flash it using this tool https://www.techpowerup.com/download/ati-atiflash/

Enter these criteria on techpowerup’s vbios page. Scroll down and at the top are two listings for the Pulse 570. Check the model number to make sure it is the right card and flash.

No, it appears it does not have a bios switch. There is nothing on the side of the card except the connections for pins for power supply to plug into.

How do I check the model exactly? Do I have to physically inspect the card or is there a sofware for it? Also do I have to delete the old drivers that are working now so it can recognize its the mining bios on it?  And last thing, on the site it says there are Pulse ITX Mini, Pulse Mini ITX and the normal Pulse. I believe mine is the normal Pulse but I just wanna double check to be sure... Thank you so much for helping!

Yeah I did get VRAM leaks in Valorant after a few hours of gaming(it says there are insufficent vram to run it), so basically I just run the amd flash tool(as administrator), follow the instructions and use that first bios to flash it and then just restart and it should act like stock? Thank you for the quick answers!!!!! You guys are lifesavers!

I will give the update when I do it later. Hopefully it works!

Ok I got one last question. Since I used the ati patcher for the bios previously(so i can install drivers and use it atleast somewhat normally) do I need to unnistall the current drivers so it recognizes on the AMD flash tool that I have the modified bios? Since right now when I want to flash it shows the same version of VBios(probably because its modified so I could install drivers somehow). Hopefully the picture helps.

The patcher basically modifies a driver file to make it ignore the incorrect checksum  (in the picture above, the bios in your card has the checksum 0x9A00 and your new bios has checksum 0xAF00) ... the checksum changes if the bios was modified in some way.

 

So no, you shouldn't have to uninstall drivers or do anything.
