Best BIOS ROM for Sapphire RX 470 8GB Mining Edition with Hynix Memory 30+ MH/s


Here it is guys, as promised! Just finished to test Sapphire RX 470 8GB Mining Edition Hynix Memory, great performance just like the one with Samsung memory. In this benchmark i included LBRY and Pascalcoin and PascalLite for dual mining, i kinda avoided them lately but someone asked for them.

Firstly the GPU was tested remotely but later i got one from a friend, again power consumption will not be that accurate because i “LOST” the energy meter :/, we will compare it with the previous one.

Apparently the RX 470 8GB Mining Edition with Hynix memory is less problematic, so this time i wont have a “problems and fixes” section.

Ethash Algorithm

  • Ethereum (ETH)
  • Ethereum Classic (ETC)
  • Ubiq (UBQ)
  • Expanse (EXP)
  • Soilcoin (SOIL)
  • Musicoin (MUSIC)
  • etc..

Equihash Algorithm

  • ZCash (ZEC)
  • Zclassic (ZCL)
  • Komodo (KMD)
  • Hush (HUSH)
  • Zencash (ZEN)
  • etc..

CryptoNight Algorithm

  • Monero (XMR)
  • ByteCoin (BCN)
  • Sumokoin (SUMO)
  • Karbowanec (KRB)
  • DigitalNote (XDN)
  • etc..

Here are some photos with the mining edition video card.

The BIOS

I discussed and explained how to use the QUAD UEFI BIOS switch jumpers in my previous tutorial for mining editon gpus, another thing you can find is a quick guide about to make the rig work without the GPU display adapter.

Flashing the BIOS
1 Back Up the BIOS

Before flashing the new BIOS, I recommend you to back up the original one first.

  • If you don’t know how to do it follow point 2 from my previous tutorial: click here

3 Flashing

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

If you need help, follow point 5 from my previous tutorial or check the following video: click here
