    Hi Prema. Have they fixed the erratic load issue that you mentioned which seemed to have killed quite a few cards, including the 1080 in P775TM? I'm giving anything newer than 390.77 a wide berth until you give green light :p

    Try modded Vulkan development driver which @j95 posted at Prema's website.

    Maybe they changed Windows drivers to Linux drivers or maybe they were watching Darker Than Black Anime and testing, if the blacks were darker/lighter than the blacks they saw in their coloring book.
    @Phoenix and @Falkentyne Do you see any speedup/improved colors on DP 1.3/HDMI 2.x TV/Monitors after applying the FW patch. Do make sure you have stock vBIOS.
    Manuel from gfe forums said, any speedup/quicker animations is a placebo effect while Sora says its only a GOP update. https://www.nvidia.com/object/nv-uefi-update-x64.html
    FWIW, I am excited since my card's GOP hasn't been updated in over 3 yrs eventhough I got an older AW BGA instead of newer AWs.
    Maybe @Papusan can try on his 980?

    Hey mate does Metabox offer delidding and Liquid metal now? Last I bought from them they weren't even Prema partner, but Prema BIOS was free then anyway.

    No idea...

    The update doesn't include an MXM UEFI vBIOS for Maxwell and the included and cross-compatible Pascal update is over 3 months older than Clevo's shipping vBIOS...

    I think its time for nvidia to pull a string from Apple's ios12 thread.
