    Yes they will possibly do the bios update for you or send you a boxed GPU with the new bios.

    The bios update is easy, however. See, I did it when they came out with a new bios for fan control and the Vram heat issue. Always good to check that your bios is the latest recommended by EVGA/AIB.

    One thing is that with the EVGA cards with two bios like mine there is a switch. The standard bios sets a power limit of 120 and the other after you change the switch is 130. You update one bios and then you have to update the other after physically flipping the switch and rebooting. See. I'm on the standard bios, power target max 120.

    Dude would likely shoot me for never benchmarking with the 130 bios. The only time I used it was to update the bios.

    See, I knew it and it wouldn't surprise me if our EVGA top benchmarkers only use that 130 bios.

    So this switch I assume is the K which overclocks the settings. As far as doing the update, I can do it myself, was just mentioning the fact that its a Free Upgrade for any previous owners of the FTW2 card. The updates are available on there web site, and in their forum too. They are also releasing the Updated Cards to the stores soon too. No Price Increase either.

    Mike; the switch is a physical switch on the card that you have to move to one side or the other. Many say, where is it as you have to look closely to see it, especially with old age eyes. That K in XOC is K boost is something else - software that ups your OC clock/voltage to what you set it to.

    Thanks as I didn't know that, all my Evga cards in the past have been cheap ones. :) Good to know, as I don't always read my manuals ...

    No sweat, Mike. Just make sure if you get the two bios card you update the 120 bios while running the old 120, and update the 130 while running the 130. Read your bios versions before updating. When you power off and switch to the 130, in addition to seeing that version number you will also see that in XOC you power target will now go up to 130.

    Well I don't know if this card I'm looking at is.....but it does sound like it has the two bios options ....

    Bios chips = two. So yes.
