How can I see the firmware version of my Gigabyte Gaming Box?

I bought a Gigabyte RX580 Gaming Box recently, however its performance is not reliable as I expected. I tried to flash the H2D bandwidth improved firmware but seems nothing changes, both the benchmark and gaming experience remains almost the same. I am not sure whether the H2D version works so is there any way I can check the firmware version of my box?

To do: Create my signature with system and expected eGPU configuration information to give context to my posts. I have no builds.

The firmware version doesn't tell for sure whether it's effected by H2D limit. Run CL!ng in macOS or AIDA64 GPGPU in Windows then post the screen capture.

Hi! Here is some info fetched from CL!ng since I don't know how to post a picture here.

                                           Pinned                                Paged
Host to Device        2189.58 MiB/s                2152.66 MiB/s
Device to Host        2189.58 MiB/s                2657.90 MiB/s
Device to Device                                41879.57 MiB/s

Here's the screenshot!

@5656hcx Your Gaming Box has the good firmware that addresses low H2D speed.

@itsage, is my Gaming Box an example of the low H2D speed? It appears to be running slower than @5656hcx's box. Thanks!

@arzen, No. Unless the Host-to-Device speed is in the range of 1,1XX Mbps, the firmware is good.
