Has anybody seen/tried this yet? http://www.tomshardware.com/news/Nvidia-GTX-680-GTX-770-BIOS-Flash-Hack,22561.html

In short, apparently someone has gotten ahold of a nVidia GTX 770 bios and flashed it to their 680. Just wondering what the advantage of doing this would be???

Just in case the source of the bios gets removed, I'll throw it in my Dropbox here: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/61135269/1368454029480.zip USE AT YOUR OWN RISK!!!

If my bored, disabled self gets brave, I'll post the results here. I just wanted to banter a bit about it before I try... ;)

Edit: the original Reddit source is here: http://www.reddit.com/r/hardware/comments/1e8u6i/flash_your_geforce_gtx_680_to_the_unreleased_gtx/

Probably next to nothing, other than maybe an increased clock speed or driver feature. This is about the same thing if you took an 8800 GT and turned into a GTS 250, they were practically the same card.

Ah...gotcha... OK. And these guys here show that you can make the card read as anything you want: http://www.techpowerup.com/183936/geforce-gtx-680-can-be-flashed-to-gtx-770.html
