A failsafe vBIOS ?

Recommended Posts

Dear forum readers,


I think it could be interesting that for any given model of GPU there's a failsafe vBIOS, that could ensure operation, but with a (very) degraded performance of course.


Generally, people looking for vBIOS mods have overclocking in mind, and the idea of a failsafe vBIOS is quite the opposite of that : minimal clocks, minimal voltage, functionality first, not performance.


Of course there are cases where it will crash whatever is done, but I'm speaking of those other cases.


It could be useful for diagnostics purposes, or say for people who have a defective card, don't intend to use it but can't remove it from their laptop.


My present need would be for my GTX 980M. The GPU always manages to initialise but halts a few seconds later, and I suspect that if some parameters were strongly capped, it would be able to continue (slow) operation and not crash.
