Best BIOS ROM for Sapphire Pulse RX 580 8GB Hynix Memory 30+ Mh/s

Ledger Wallet protects your bitcoins

Here is the second GPU of RX500 series test, the Sapphire Pulse RX 580 8gb with Hynix memory and i had more time to play with it, the video card seems to be very stable (at least this one), with good hashrate and power consumption.

I tested with Ethereum (Ethash) only, dual mining Ethereum + Decred, Siacoin, LBRY Credits and PascalCoin also Zcash (Equihash), Monero (CryptoNight) and Nicehash.

Since there are more tests done for the Pulse RX 580 8gb, this article will be a bit longer than Sapphire Nitro+ Rx 580 8GB one, but like i said for this one i had the time to test everything and is more accurate regarding the hashrate and power draw measured with GPUz and from wall.

Stock performance, mining hashrate and power consumption!

Stock clocks

  • 1281/1750
  • 22 mh/s on Ethereum
  • GPU-Z 80w
  • From wall 140w

Stock bios

  • 1133/2153 -96mV
  • 24 mh/s on Ethereum
  • GPU-Z 78w
  • From wall 130w

Sapphire Pulse RX 580 8GB Mining Performance Review

Here is the exact GPU

1 Tools and Software needed

NOTE: I already did a similar tutorial for a RX 470 4GB and i will link some points there to avoid writing the same thing over and over again!

IMPORTANT: Before starting to make any bios modification, extract and combine AMD Drivers and do not restart, start atikmdag-patcher.exe and apply the patch (if needed), after this you can restart the pc. If you don’t this the GPUs wont work with the new modded bios flashed.

2 Backup BIOS

Before to continue further, please share this πŸ™‚ thanks!

3 Download BIOS

Important, this BIOS is for Hynix memory only! Check your memory with GPUz software

4 Flash BIOS with ATiflash

VERY IMPORTANT: Always extract ATIflash to C:/atiflash folder and place the ROM file that needs to be flashed in the same directory

Here are my results with this BIO rom

Ethereum Dual Mining

For dual mining i set the clocks and undervolt/underclock via Claymore miner directly (as you can see below), i had better results on hashrate and power consumption!
