  2. Choose the profile or switch to advance mode and set your desired settings
  3. Modify the BIOS and download the image

Flash the GPU with the modified BIOS image

  1. The command to flash the video addapter is atiflash -p <Num> <File>
  2. -p option means program(flash) the GPU
    <Num> is the number of the GPU you identified earlier
    <File> is a path to the modified BIOS image which you downloaded earlier
