    Hello, any owners present?

    I wanted to know if you could help me providing a photo/screenshot of the GPU-Z information for the RTX2060


    I am an MSI GS65-8SE owner and wanted to try and flash the Asus RTX2060 90W VBIOS firmware over my RTX2060 80W firmware on my MSI Laptop in order to see if I could get more performance out of my card.

    Let me know, thanks!

    Hey..i am a GL704GV owner, i installed the firmware update but i wish i didn't..my temps went from 78 max to 86 max on the GPU. I stupidly didn't save the previous vbios..and now i'm stuck with this "high performance" one..

    https://dlcdnets.asus.com/pub/ASUS/GamingNB/GL704GV/GL704GV_AsVBiosFlashTool_V110.zip

    That is the update.

    Would you mind downloading GPU-Z and selecting the NVIDIA card and uploading screen shot. Also if you click the arrow icon please save the bios to your computer and upload it.


    I will upload the old VBIOS I have but need to see your current one to determine if the one I have is the previous or same version you updated to.

    This is the older VBIOS I was given back in March 2019.

    Thanks a lot for posting, i think i will try it, though still looking for the original vers..

    v-bios:

    screenshot:

    upload_2019-6-7_10-15-38.png

    Do you happen to remember the exact model of the user? I have a GL704GV.

    Also the v-bios appears the same in GPU-Z, but that i misleading because the version does changes but you have to use ASUS GPU TWEAK II and in info you can see the real version, mine is: N110GL704GV.003$, is yours the same?

    Also with that V-bios you posted what is the max reached TDP in hwinfo? Be warned mine went to 99 W TDP once..i don't know what they are thinking..but it is very stable..no issues from intense gaming..only temps that reach a high of 86 C. What temps (Avg/max) do you reach with that posted v-bios?

    Thanks a lot.

    Any GL704GV that didn't update the GPU firmware (still has the original), please post it here, it would help a lot (the new one from ASUS website gives high-temps for GPU).

    All it takes is downloading GPU-Z and 1-click-save, like here:

    Yeah it 90w , so occasionally it goes over. I get sub 85°C temps. It throttles at 85+.

    I think max while benchmark was 82°C, usually cooler though.

    I see, so we have the same bios?

    Also did you see any performance changes from 80 to 90 TDP?

    Yes amazing increase in performance. On benchmark, haven't tested extensively in game . Do you want my msi65 80w VBIOS?
