I have yet to see what BIOS my RX 470 has because it might be one of these:

https://www.techpowerup.com/vgabios/185588/xfx-rx470-4096-160730

And planning to flash it to this:

So I am also well aware of the chances of bricking my RX 470 but I want to ask the community if atiflash is all I need to flash this GPU and if this is the right RX 570 BIOS to flash to. Guess I'll just use GPU-Z to backup my current BIOS. Thanks in advance! :)

As dirt-cheap as the 570 is, why not just buy one?

($149.99 @ NewEgg)
Nah they are almost similar in performance with at best 5-10% gap between them, the 570 being better. I just want to try it out and see if I can get some small gains. Plus here in the Philippines the 570's price is still whack and has not recovered yet from mining phase and are between 300-400 dollars. They are mall prices though and seems they did not want to bring the prices down because when they bought it from sellers it was around the mining craze era. :/
