Best BIOS ROM for Sapphire Pulse RX 580 8GB Hynix Memory 30+ Mh/s

Here is the second GPU of RX500 series test, the Sapphire Pulse RX 580 8gb with Hynix memory and i had more time to play with it, the video card seems to be very stable (at least this one), with good hashrate and power consumption.

I tested with Ethereum (Ethash) only, dual mining Ethereum + Decred, Siacoin, LBRY Credits and PascalCoin also Zcash (Equihash), Monero (CryptoNight) and Nicehash.

Since there are more tests done for the Pulse RX 580 8gb, this article will be a bit longer than Sapphire Nitro+ Rx 580 8GB one, but like i said for this one i had the time to test everything and is more accurate regarding the hashrate and power draw measured with GPUz and from wall.

Stock performance, mining hashrate and power consumption!

1 Tools and Software needed

I know that Claymore released version 9.4 but the tests were made with 9.3 one 🙂

NOTE: I already did a similar tutorial for a RX 470 4GB and i will link some points there to avoid writing the same thing over and over again!

IMPORTANT: Before starting to make any bios modification, extract and combine AMD Drivers and do not restart, start atikmdag-patcher.exe and apply the patch (if needed), after this you can restart the pc. If you don’t this the GPUs wont work with the new modded bios flashed.

Ethereum Dual Mining

For dual mining i set the clocks and undervolt/underclock via Claymore miner directly (as you can see below), i had better results on hashrate and power consumption!
