Is that possible with this thing? Couldn't find any mention of anyone doing this. Then again, the type of people who buy the BM Pro, probably aren't interested doing this type of thing.

@dregpu There are a lot of challenges in finding a matching vBIOS. Memory modules are likely Samsung. The cooling profile is a concern because it’s tuned to run quiet. The biggest concern in my opinion is the display output ports. Flashing random RX Vega 64 vBIOS may render the Thunderbolt 3 monitor output nonfunctional.

@itsage Yeah, I wondered about the unintended consequences. I'd heard of people bricking their GPUs. Just wondered if anyone had tried it with the super expensive blackmagic pros...

Thanks for the input!
