eVGA has released a newer version of their performance BIOS for the GeForce FX 5900 Ultra. Check it out.

They suggest that you download the referenxe BIOS also in case of problems.

As we promised, we have a new version of the Performance BIOS that should address the problems seen with the original.

Right now we are in a trial stage with this new Performance BIOS. It has shown good results in testing, including the ability to avoid the problems with 3DMark that the original had.

We would like to make this BIOS available here for the community to download and try, just as we did with the original reference BIOS.

We would also appreciate any feedback about this new Performance BIOS that you might have.

Also, make sure that you download the original reference BIOS as well as this new Performance BIOS (we will include both links). This is so that if you have any problems with the new Performance BIOS that you can easily revert to the reference BIOS.

The links are as follows:

REFERENCE BIOS:

PERFORMANCE BIOS:
http://www.evga.com/community/messageboard/5900UB2.asp

Please let us know what your experiences with this new Performance BIOS are!

Thanks,

Funny, I just got a eVGA 5900 Ultra but it was clocked at 450/850.

then you could slap the preformance bios on it, but it is at y our own risk, as Evga states.

Do they make a performance BIOS for my 5600 256MB?

Yeah, very true, but I don't think I want to risk it. Coolbits works great and is much safer.


@CaptNKILL
I don't think they make a performance bios for any card other than their 5900U. It's just higher core/mem speeds, that's all.
