    The description on Eluktronics website tout the
    • 6GB GDDR6 VRAM NVIDIA® GeForce® RTX 2060 Max-P (TDP: 80~115 Watts)
    So the limit tdp of this 2060 is 115w? That's a shock! Does anyone have the vbios of that 2060? Or has anyone bought that laptop and extract vbios by nvflash?

    I have also tried to modify and hexedit my own vbios by different approaches to restore the checksum but eventually blocked by BIOS certificate 2.0:(

    The vBIOS itself has the same low TDP as others.

    The power adjustment is done on the fly via low level firmware code being injected between GPU and driver.

    Thanks for reply, I'm a big fan of you! Used to use some Clevo barebones and familiar with you godlike mod Bios.

    In this case, You mean by inserting some power management firmware between the level of bios and OS to adjust the tdp? like some interpretation from Bios to OS driver? Then can we just modify the NV driver to enhance the power?

    Also, I found you are at the top of 3dmark notebook ranking, no matter firestrike or timespy. you almost boost the mobile card to the same performance as desktop card. How did you do that? Have you successfully unlock the bios certificate and flash it? Could you give me some key hint? Thank you so much!

    +1. I, too, am wondering how he achieved such a high score. Is it modded vBios? Or is it hardware related and how to do so?

    I was reaaallly getting my hopes up when I found this in a google search... The TDP of my RTX 2060 in similar laptop build is locked at 80 and it would be absolutely awesome if this "unlocked" VBIOS could up that to like 90-100. Saying that it seems there isn't much info on this...

    There is a way to increase the cap to 90W by flashing vbios of other brands which use the 90W version. Also nvidia has launched the "renewed" version of 2060 with 115W but I have not seen any brand equips their new laptop with it atm.

    This I am aware of. But I am unable to find a vbios that has 2x miniDP functionality. When I flash to another vbios for example from MSI I get perfect 90w tdp BUT I lose miniDP functionality because the laptop the vbios comes from doesn't have those ports.

    Finding a vbios with 2x miniDP that is 90w is no easy task. If you have any ideas fire them my way! Thanks!

    Hey Guys,

    Been eyeing this thread for a while.. created an account to ask if any of you found anything functional?

    I can see that the 2060 mobile is rated for max 115W...but we're here stuck with 25 less watts.

    Thanks for answering.. hope we can figure a way to boost these things up... especially that the gpu on my end doesn't get over 62C... seems like there's headroom.

    Cheers

    The "max" 115W is achieved either by the trick mentioned by Prema on the old 2060 or, currently, by using the refreshed version of 2060 with the rated 115W by Nvidia themselves afaik.
    So perhaps when the 2060 refreshed laptops are out, we can use their vBios to flash onto the old 2060 model to increase the TDP allowed, maybe?

    Nope. Already checked in with @Prema about that. I was hoping the same. Not gonna happen. The hardware ID and firmware signing has been changed by NGREEDIA to make the firmware intentionally incompatible to circumvent any possibility of doing the right thing by last gen GPU customers. In other words, another selfish shafting right up the old posterior orifice from the Green Goblin. The only thing anyone can count on is getting screwed over by tech giants that don't give a damn about anyone but themselves. That's just how they roll.
