For those of us that love EVGA GPUs this might be an interesting thing, maybe a must have for those of you that overclock.

[edit] Check out the bottom of the article, you might win one of the new GPUs with the double BIOS. [/edit]

LoL, I like it:

How would you use the EVGA Double BIOS?: I would keep the default BIOS for fallback & experiment with the secondary, to achieve megacrunching tastiness with peace of mind.


Are there any additional features you would wish to see on a 2nd BIOS?: I would like to change the reported driver description e.g. from 'NVIDIA Geforce GTX 780' to 'Don't Panic!', since it would look cool on crunching & benchmark leaderboards when I roast my competitors

I like the idea that you (or someone else who knows more than I do) could customize a BIOS for maximum SETI through-put and distribute it.

Thanks for bringing it to our attention.

I hope one or more of us wins one.

@Jason -- I hope you put that on the wish list.

Okay Jason, When I win mine you will have to talk me through it. I have no idea what I would do with it.
