Recently bought EVGA GTX 1060: should I update BIOS?

Hello,

Just a quick question. I bought the "EVGA GeForce GTX 1060 6GB FTW+ GAMING ACX 3.0, 6GB GDDR5, LED, DX12 OSD Support (PXOC) Graphics Card 06G-P4-6368-KR" from Amazon yesterday.

I heard there were some BIOS issues with the EVGA cards sometime back. Do I need to update this card's BIOS? And if so, can someone please direct me to where I can download it from, and give me instructions as well?

Thanks!

  1. The BIOS is on your motherboard. You can update the drivers. Not sure if GPUs have firmware or not, but could be wrong.

    After you install it, make sure your video cables are hooked up to the GPU. Then download NVIDIA Geforce, and let it install drivers and enjoy your games.

  2. No I am specifically talking about EVGA GTX 1060 firmware, not the motherboard BIOS.

  3. This is for single fan models. The FTW+ version has two fans so I dont think it applies.

    I know that was my point. What I was saying was that it was only for the single fan. So you don't have to worry abut firmware upgrades. Just plug it in, install the drivers, and play games.
