The new AMD Radeon RX 5600 XT graphics card was launched recently. And its launch has been outside «Controversy» at the last minute of the direction the manufacturer made, with it original vBIOS graph, one that has brought about significant increase in performance. It's no surprise that, from that moment on, the graph can rival the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060 for the same price.
However, most graphics cards that will go on sale can do so with classic vBIOS. And, on the other hand, we'll have to see how many graphics card manufacturers launch the new vBIOS, which unlocks the full potential of these graphics cards.
It's a tough region it is innocent of any kind of damage caused by malicious hardware or software fraud during the vBIOS update process for these graphics cards.
Update vBIOS for the Radeon RX 5600 XT
Graphic card maker ASUS presented two models of the Radeon RX 5600 XT, and each of these models has their own new vBIOS. So, the first thing we should do is go to support website each of the ASUS models to download its associated files.
Once we have it on the file will be an implementation that we will use to update our graphics card.
Before starting the update, we have to turn off our program and submit switch to select vBIOS positioning «Q» (Silence, Silence) Now, we'll restart the computer and do a restart job by double clicking on the file «ROG-STRIX-RX5600XT-O6G-GAMING_BIOSupdate.exe». Because update option «P» (Functionality, functionality), we'll do the same steps we just did right now.
Keeping in mind that ASUS TUF 3 RX-5600 XT O6G EVO Gaming the new vBIOS only changes the functionality of the option «Q», to make it smaller, which means it doesn't change the parameters of usually graphics card
ASRock released the theme 3 models graphics cards for this new AMD Radeon RX 5600 XT: two from the Phantom Games series and one by the Challenger series.
The first thing we will do is go to support page for each of the models, to be able to download its compatible vBIOS.
The next step will be download new vBIOS folder in your PC, where you have to open the file.
Of the two files that will appear, you must do what is called "Update", which will open the command line window where the file will execute the installation process. Occasionally, a text appears on a screen that says «Success: Restart to finish VBIOS update» You must restart the computer for the update to work.
GIGABYTE It also introduces two Radeon RX 5600 XT graphics cards as ASUS. And, like this producer, only one of them will receive an update to vBIOS with very high performance. In the case of another graph, the new vBIOS is all it does reducing temperatures of functionality, which makes fans of your heatsink, run at a higher rpm.
So, to start the renewal process, we will go to Support website for GIGABYTE Radeon RX 5600 XT Gaming OC 6G to download the update file. This file is compressed and you should find a folder inside, with a name «FLASH_R56XTGO.FA0». When we open it, we will find the following.
This manufacturer gives us the option to use celebrities AMD Radeon vBIOS flash tool, «AtiTool». However, if you do not feel comfortable with this tool, product type include a usable file, i «GVFLASH», that will take care of you for the whole process.
As with other products that have appeared in this tutorial, PowerColor has released two models graphics cards for RX 5600 XT: Redemon Radeon RX 5600 XT and Red Dagon Radeon RX 5600 XT. Also, in both graphics card models the release of their compatible vBIOS has been released.
To start the process of update In this case, the first thing we will do is go to a PowerColor support website for each of these types:
The process of updating this manufacturer is even more complicated, because we have to do it from DOS. This means that, previously, we have to build a boot disk in that operating system, in a program similar to that «Rufus», since this program can create a disk that starts with USB pen drive that uses MS-DOS as an application.
As soon as a hard drive has been created, we have to put a folder «DOSFILES» in the hard drive directory. This folder is where we can find both The light show graphics card, like the new vBIOS.
With these steps, it will only be necessary restart the computer
Since the Saphire graphics card uses Dual BIOS, this manufacturer has decided to introduce two new vBIOS: A quiet VBIOS and one set up to take advantage of all card performance.
The only one of them Sapphire graphics cards that can be updated with the new vBIOS will be the following:
Be very careful: If you try to use the new vBIOS in a non-just-mentioned graph, you run the risk of update
Once you are absolutely sure that the part number of your graph corresponds to one of the previous numbers, now is the time to go to Sapphire website and download the file with the new vBIOS. Next, we will open them to see that there is, inside, a folder containing files and a pdf file, which is textbook to do an update (being in English).
In the folder are the new vBIOS graphics card, and a .bat file that will run the entire user process.
As we mentioned, the Spahhire model has two vBIOS. Refresh compatible with silent mode, PC is off, you must move change from card to left (the closest place to video card output). Now, since the PC is already on, you'll have to double click on the file «BIOS_update_SW_left.bat» and wait for the update to finish, when you have to restart the computer for the update to take effect.
In performance-focused vBIOS, we will follow the same steps. In this case, it also closes with the PC, we will move the card selector to the right. And the file we will update will be called "BIOS_update_SW_right.bat". We will restart the program and it will be done.
It is very important that, as a precautionary measure, do not update both vBIOS at the same time. Because, if the process fails, you will no longer be able to access the graphics card in any way.
Of all the graphics card manufacturers that will release the new RX 5600 XT models, the XFX has the most models now in its catalog: up to 6 different types introduced this producer. And each of them has a new vBIOS upgrade, even though the increase in performance varies between versions, since there are some up to 10% and some up to 7%.
To start reviewing these graphs, the first thing we will do is go to XFX web Support, where we can find all the models where vBIOS exists and its associated links to the dedicated pages for each model in question. In fact, it is on these pages that we will find, not only links to the new vBIOS, but also a link to the file illumination function in the graphic, as well as an English instruction manual.
We should also make that clear, for each graph we will find two vBIOS files: one that will give us great performance, and one that will make the graph sound.
Now we have to download it, both files turn on vBIOS «AMDVbFlash_v3.04», as a file with the new vBIOS. It would be great if you put them all in the same folder, where they are easy to find; and now we can open the vBIOS file and install the AMD flash program.
In the folder «56XT6170» This is where you can find the new vBIOS file.
Our next step will be to install The light show graph and continue with it.
Remember that you always have to be very sure that the vBIOS you are going to flash is exactly the same as your graphics card model. Also, in the case of this XFX image, the manufacturer recommends that, once we install the new vBIOS, we release and confirm that our program AMD Radeon Software Adrenalin driver. It's also a good idea to do it with other graphics cards.
