Nope. My 9650M GT (ASUS laptop) had its BIOS in the motherboard BIOS. I have opened my laptop and it looks like an MXM card (separate card with a slot, not on main motherboard).

At first I tried using nvflash and friends to read the video BIOS but those tools could not find it. I thought I couldn't touch it, until I read about folks using AMI BIOS tools to get it from the motherboard BIOS.

Note: I do not have Powermizer issues, but I did this to lower the stock speeds even lower. (169mhz to 150mhz)
