Gainward and Galax started rolling out VBIOS updates for Resizable BAR support on their GeForce RTX 30 series.
Some NVIDIA by business partners GeForce RTX 30 series graphics cards for Resizable BAR BIOS updates started to be presented. Thanks to this feature, an PCI Express with technology Resizable BAR (Resizable Base Address Register) It is aimed to increase the frame rates of the games.
The resizable BAR allows full access to the processor and system instead of limiting a graphics card’s access to memory in 256 MB increments over the PCIe bus. AMD didn’t use it until they introduced the Radeon RX 6000 series with Intelligent Access Memory (SAM) support, although the technology has been around for several years. Let us remind you that AMD’s application only works with its own processors. On the NVIDIA side, the processor is independent, that is, it can work with both AMD and Intel platforms.
NVIDIA ships with a BIOS that already supports this feature GeForce RTX 3060 ile Resizable BAR started the process. Users purchasing one of these cards only need to have a compatible motherboard and motherboard BIOS and the latest Game Ready GPU driver to take advantage of the feature.
While other GeForce RTX 30 series cards require a BIOS update, Gainward ve Galax started publishing them. We would like to point out that updating the BIOS is risky. As with updating your motherboard BIOS, you should make sure you don’t turn off your system in the middle of the process. It’s also worth using an uninterruptible power supply to avoid a power failure that will break your GPU in the middle of the BIOS update. In this sense, let’s underline that the risk belongs to you.
The BIOSes currently available are only available for certain models offered in China. Updates for international models are expected to arrive soon.
