The XFX 5870 has been brushed. I bought an XFX R9 280X. I used GPU-Z 2.17.0 to back up the BIOS name Tahiti R9 280x.rom, which is 128K. I used ATIWINFLASH to back up the BIOS name to xfx 280x old bios.rom and the size is 256K. Which one is correct? Given that the previous XFX 5870 was wiped out. Can this XFX R9 280X help me modify a MAC EFI bios? Greatful!

I upload the bios,THINKS!!!

XFX GPUs are notorious for EFI problems.

Did you use the Netkas script ?

Which BIOS switch position did you use ?

Thank you very much, my xfx R9 280x does not have a BIOS switch. I also dare not modify the BIOS at will, because this video card only has a BIOS. If the modification is out of the question, the video card will also break down

[doublepost=1552223874][/doublepost]why I can not upload BIOS OR RAR?
[doublepost=1552223933][/doublepost]Why can't I upload a BIOS or WINRAR file?

this site has all the XFX bioses:
https://www.techpowerup.com/vgabios/?did=1002-6798-1682-3001
You need to find the right bios based on the part or model number. Look at the bottom of the card and search the site based on your device Id.
