    UEFI GOP Fast Boot VBIOS for ASUS GTX660 TI-DC2-2GD5 GeForce GTX 660 ti

    I have the ASUS GTX660 TI-DC2-2GD5 GeForce GTX 660 ti running on an MSI Z77 motherboard that supports Windows 8 Fast Boot.

    I am also running Windows 8 Pro.

    I would like to obtain a VBIOS for this card that will support Fast Boot.

    Could anyone, preferably someone from ASUS (though information from others also welcom), comment on the current or expected availability of such a BIOS for this card?

    TIA

    According to what ASUS tech support has told me directly via email, ASUS does not have a UEFI GOP BIOS for the TI-DC2-2GD5 GTX 660 ti, and gave no indication that they plan on providing one in the future (see msg from ASUS below).

    Meanwhile, EVGA and MSI do seem to be providing UEFI GOP compatible BIOSes for their Kepler-based cards now, based on threads I see going in their respective customer forums. So, I hope ASUS releases UEFI GOP BIOSes soon.


    Dear Sir/Lady,

    Thank you for contacting ASUS Customer Service.
    My name is Carol and it is my pleasure to help you with your problem.

    For the problem, GTX660 TI-DC2-2GD5 doesn't support UEFI. It is Legacy BIOS.

    If you have another problem, please get contact with us ASAP.

    Best Regards,
    Carol
    ASUS Customer Service
    It seems to be a nice card otherwise, and runs cool and quiet.

    I will try to help you.

    Can you please install 'GPU Tweak' and select the "VBIOS" tab which is located under the "Live Update" section. You will then see a BIOS String, please provide me with that (it will look like GTX680 VB Ver 80.04.09.00.AS11)

    Thomas, this is good news if you will be able to get something moving on proper GOP support. Motherboard manufacturers advertise 2 second boot times for Win8 as a big selling point. Yet not one of them provide GOP support out of the box for the video cards they sell nor do they state these boot times are not possible without GOP.

    I am interested in this too. I have a ASUS GTX660 TI-DC2OG-2GD5, and would like to get UEFI VBIOS for it so I could use Fast Boot. I'm running the GPU on a Asus P8Z77-V PRO Motherboard.
    The VBIOS on my card are GTX660 VB Ver 80.04.4B.00.AS07

    wonder what this means: Did the first posters recieve a PM with a new BIOS, or is a new BIOS coming in the next days, if so how (PM or public)

    Why not release it publically with a big warning that it will brick the card for people who do not know what they do?

    BTW, I have a different card with BIOS 80.04.19.00.AS03 (GTX 670)
