4GB Radeon RX 480 Can Be Flashed To 8GB Version

We've been able to unlock shaders with BIOS mods in the past on AMD graphics cards, but how about doubling the memory? Apparently some 4GB variants of the card actually contain the same memory chips as the 8GB variant with 4GB of that disabled in the BIOS. This means you can flash the BIOS of the card to a BIOS of an 8GB card and unlock that extra 4GB of memory!

If you are lucky these CUs have been disabled using a soft-mod. If that is the case you can use the newly developed CUINFO software developed by OCN forum member tx12. It has shown some success unlocking disabled CUs in AMD graphics cards based on Figi, Hawaii and Tonga chips.

Micron Introduces Industry’s Smallest 128-Gigabit NAND Flash Device

Micron Technology, Inc. today introduced the industry's smallest 128-gigabit (Gb) NAND flash memory device utilizing its award-winning 20-nanometer (nm) process technology. The new 128Gb device stores three bits of information per cell, called triple-level-cell (TLC), creating a highly compact storage solution. Measuring 146mm2, the new 128Gb TLC device is more than 25 percent smaller than the same capacity of Micron's 20nm multi-level-cell (MLC) NAND device. The 128Gb TLC device is targeted at the cost-competitive removable storage market (flash cards and USB drives), which is projected to consume 35 percent of total NAND gigabytes in calendar 2013. Micron is now sampling the 128Gb TLC NAND device with select customers; it will be in production in calendar Q2.

How to Flash (Update) Your Motherboard’s System BIOS

Recently Bob did an article on <a href="http://thinkcomputers.wpengine.com/how-to-find-out-the-model-of-the-motherboard-you-have/">finding out the model of your motherboard.</a> Since you usually find out the version of your board’s BIOS at the same time, I thought that an article on updating, or flashing, your BIOS would be a good idea. There were numerous articles on the subject back when I first got into building, and all of them involved a 3.5” floppy drive. Today, nearly all motherboards have multiple options for flashing the BIOS, and normally a floppy isn’t required.
