Just an FYI you mention the BIOS, but it's specifically the vBIOS.....Just so no one goes and tries to the flash the system BIOS from the R4 to their R5.

Wanna bet they will thermal throttle now more often?
10:1 this is intentional to prevent overheating and reduce warranty claims due to failed solder joints or poor performance.

It would be a good piece of journalism to compare the before and after including stress test.

Someone already did, there was a general uptick in performance, although not a stagering amount. Temps actually went down in most cases, which was odd, but Jarod's tech tested it and those were his results. Either way it didn't push the 3070 in the R5 up to top performer space or anything like that.
