    Default GV-R797OC-3GD - Dual Bios??

    I just purchased this card, aside from being very happy with performance I am puzzled about the dual bios option. This is the first dual bios card I've owned and I'm unable to find any solid information on it.

    I want to know specificially what Bios Switch #1 does, and what Bios Switch #2 does. Is one suppose to be overclocked and one stock? I don't notice a difference between 1 and 2 in GPUz, Caps Viewer or Afterburner.

    Thanks in advance! :)

    Im sorry but did you forget about your post here Can someone explain to me dual vga bios switch? - Forums?

    If something was to go wrong with the 1st bios you could switch to the 2nd bios and still be able to use card. Or like campcreekdude said you could edit one bios with overclock setting and leave the other bios at stock and switch between the two.
