What is Red Bios Editor?

Red Bios Editor - is a tool for changing some parameters in ATI BIOS. It focuses on timing, power saving and core overclocking settings as they are the most important for most users. BIOS modification is an alternative to using memory configuration utilities such as RivaTuner, ATI Tray Tools or ATITool.

Supported GPUs:

Radeon RX 5500, 5700, 5700 XT, 6700 XT, 6800XT, 6800, 6900, RX 570,580,590,560, 470, 480 and Polaris family cards.

Features

  • Possibility of voltage modification.
  • Keeping PowerPlay intact / still working after overclocking. You can even enhance this power saving function as you see fit.
  • Change Overdrive BIOS signature to allow higher overclocking limit. Signatures can also be extracted and saved to a file.

You will need WinFlash to save and flash all BIOSes.

How to Use Red Bios Editor?

Step 1 - Download the program

Download the program from the official source. rbe_download

Install the program following the standard instructions. Click "Next" everywhere.

rbe_setup

Step 2 - Save the current BIOS

Make a copy of the current BIOS as described in the ATIFlash instructions.

atiflash_save

Or make a copy in TechPowerUp GPU-Z.

gpu_bios_save

Alternatively: use other programs like ATITool and ATITool и RivaTuner, they can also save BIOS from the card. However, these programs still have problems with the latest graphics cards.

Step 3 - Overclock the BIOS

Open the BIOS you saved in step 2. Press the "Load" button.

rbe_load

Select the previously saved BIOS version in the selection window:

rbe_open

Go to the "VRAM Timings" tab.

5700xt

In the Memory Type field, select the type of video card memory.

vram_timins

Select the required timings and copy their values. Then click the "Save" button.

save_bios

Use Polaris Bios Editor (PBE) to automatically find good timings.

You can also find a collection of ready-made BIOSes on the TechPowerUp website.

Also set up PowerPlay. Click the "Load MPT File" button and load the file created in the MorePowerTool program.

mpt

Use ATIFlash to save and flash all BIOSes.

Video: Overclocking Navi - Unlimited Power - Optimize your BIOS (witch MorePowerTool).
Since AMD has massively restricted the use of the SoftPowerPlayTables and thus indirectly also the MorePowerTool with the Adrenaline drivers from 2020, the community mourns the former overclocking or underclocking bonus, which made the Navi cards like a Radeon RX 5700 (XT) at least a bit more interesting or efficient and was gladly taken along as a free bonus. Unfortunately, since Adrenaline 2020 this was, at least temporarily, over for the time being. But the community around the Red BIOS Rebellion Team has of course taken up this challenge...

 

 

Video: RX 5700 XT 58 Mh/s BIOS Modding Guide

In this video I walk through all the most recent bios mods for both the RX 5700 and RX 5700 XT which allow the most performance for crypto mining. I show stock and overlocked performance before jumping into modifying memory timings and flashing the GPU. In the end I achieve 58 MH/s at ~130 watts mining Ethereum.

When it comes to GPU Mining, remember Silicon Lottery! Results MAY vary from GPU to GPU so your Clocks/Undervolt/Voltage shown in my videos may not work for you because of GPU Brand/Memory/Manufacturing what have you. Temperatures and your Cooling methods will also play the part and have an affect. Test at your OWN RISK and do your OWN RESEARCH.

The tREF/I (REFresh Interval) is basically the time window (shown in clock cycles) within which the memory can do work (reads/writes). The higher it is, the more work that the memory can do, but also the higher the risk of losing data/stability.

Alternatives

Are there alternatives? Yes, for example:

Is there a version for Nvidia? No, but there are alternatives:

Versions

Conclusions

The program does an excellent job with its functionality.

If you are mining on video cards, then it is recommended to use PhoenixMiner
