Has anyone tried this and what does it improve?

Download Version Date Description
BETA 2005/7/13

BETA describes a pre-limitary version that is reliable yet may not include all the features of the final product.

Upgrade core clock and memory clock to enhance 3D performance.

Looks like the basic nVidia GTX BIOS (05.70.02.11.10) with a 480 core clock and 40 MHz delta (520) with 625 (1250) on the memory. All other items appear basic.

Thanks for the link.

Hmm... I'd be interested to see how it performs, although I'm going to wait until a tried-and-tested rev comes out until I update.

I think there will be no "tried-and-tested rev" coming out:
According to a moderator of the German Gigabyte-Support-Forum this BIOS is the version of a (handselected) OCed editition of the card that won't be released for the European markt (don't know about the US though). Owners of the "normal" card are given the possibility to OC their cards with this bios. There's no guarantee though that your card will work with the higher clockrates (in my case the clock-rate is too high when using SLI and gives me artifacts in certain games like the F.E.A.R.-Demo so I changed the core clock to 450 MHz and the mem clock to 1250 MHz with NiBiTor) and that's why Gigabyte marked the BIOS as a beta-version. Therefore the "beta"-Status of this BIOS will never change to final.

I flashed my Inno3D 7800GTX with Leadtek BIOS version 5.70.02.11.68, works great, I believe that is the latest BIOS there is:

Modded the BIOS with NiBiTor to 500/1300:

Use GFV16.exe that comes with the Gigabyte Beta BIOS: You can use this with any BIOS, e.g. the Leadtek BIOS mentioned in this thread which I flashed too.
Don't forget to de- and reinstall the drivers for you card after the BIOS-Update though.

I am sure your screen was a pletora of torn frames and heavy artifacting to get that score :eek:

Not exactly. I am running my card at 520/1400 with perfect stability in more than 20 games (http://hulan.cz/temp/games.png) , 3DMark05 included.
