    Seems awful. The result would be even worse if he have the test results with Meltdown protection disabled (old bios).

    There is no gsync version of the Ranger that I am aware.

    None should share mod firmware they haven't created themself.

    but is it ok to flash a modified non-gsync gtx 980m vbios on a aw 17 r1 120hz? i installed a msi gtx 980m g sync (with device id 1617) with stock bios on aw17 and got a very low firestrike score of 7300..so i think modifying the vbios will solve the problem..tnx sir

    Screen also needs to be G-Sync.

    Also I wouldnt know about flashing untested vBIOS onto a working card. If you cant find any precedent for it then its basically up to you to figure that out.
