    If you have a GTX 880M card, why you a flash BIOS for GTX 10xx cards?

    You should be use this Bios

    I tried it with my 1060 and it will not let me install the standard nvidia drivers (418.81 tested). I also tried my modded drivers and ran into issues. Not fun! had to flash the vanilla dell bios just to install the modded drivers to get sleep mode to work to flash back..

    The problem is there are many different types of pascal cards out there. I suspect this may the issue at hand

    Yea mb lol. Thought it was a rolling bios mod, i.e. adding support to the new cards without removing support for the old, thought id just flash it now and not have to deal with reflashing when i eventually mod in a 10 series card.

    Exactly, there are many versions of cards GTX 10xx

    It probably also has the meaning of vBios card and device ID 068B.1028

    @Brenden Weaver what device ID has your card in GPU-Z?

    Got a question. Would changing the CPU format a 4800mq to a 4930mx count as an nvram reset? Thanks!
