Hi,

I've just downloaded the latest version for GPUTweak v2.3.7.3, all works just perfect as always, but have a problem.
When I try to check if there's a new vBIOS update for my HD7970 DC2T, it says it failed to connect.

Does someone knows which port uses or what could be happening that it's not letting me connect?

Thanks,

UPDATE: Was the F... Windows Firewall, as always... Please delete this post.

Mine is not FW problem, NOD32 asks and I choose yes...

Well, first it wasn't because it was been blocked by Windows firewall, but now I don't know why it started again to say "Check your internet connection"

Is there another way to see if I have the latest BIOS for my card and how to flash it if needed?

Yes, check out asus support pages for your card.

Thanks, seems it's not available in the pages yet... so I'll have to wait until they confirm it was released it.

There's always techpowerup.com, they have just abour every VGA bios there is in their database.

I've had it do this a lot. It's just temperamental. As people have said if it fails just check the ASUS support page for your card!

By asking a source I have, it seems that this update is only to comply with MS, and get the Windows 8 Ready certified on their cards.
It does not add any boost to startup, or anything else.

Hope he's wrong and it really boost it. And hope to get a formal announcement and response about the benefits of upgrading BIOS once it's released.
