Download ATIFlash to Flash Your BIOS


To flash the graphics card BIOS users can download ATIFlash.


ATI Technologies Incorporation is one of the most powerful software developers and those who work with graphic processors. Since 2007, it has become AMD Graphics Products Group subdivision and since 2010 all their production has been labeled with the AMD brand.

However, the main brand of ATI, Radeon, will be preserved in the names of future video cards. In addition to developing high-quality GPUs for PCs, ATI is also developing built-in GPUs for laptops, PDAs, and mobile phones, and integrated graphics solutions for motherboards, TV consoles and others.


Requirements for ATIFlash

The program ATIFlash is a proper program for mining goals. The version released by ATI is called ATIFlash or WinFlash. Users download ATIFlash and use it with ease.

Before making upgrade experts advise to save the flashing provided by the manufacturer on the computer and the utility will be useful in this task. ATIFlash supports all AMD Radeon graphics cards, like RX 5700, RX 5600 and RX 5500. Users can also flash the BIOS for all AMD Radeon RX Vega, RX 580, RX 480, and all older ATI cards.


How to use ATIFlash

It is recommended to disable the video card on Windows before flashing the BIOS. To do this, users need to open ‘Device Manager’ and in the point ‘Video Adapters’ select the necessary adapter and with right click disable it. There are two possible ways to use the ATIFlash utility. The first one is using its graphical interface and the second – its console version. Let’s have a closer look at both of them.




Flashing using graphical interface

The first step is to start ATIFlash with the administrator right. Make sure that the needed video adapter is selected in the upper right corner. In case there are more than three video cards, the program won’t be able to display the entire list correctly. Therefore, users need to use another way to flash the BIOS, the second one, which will be described below. Then click on the button Load Image and select the BIOS file. ‘Press Program’. Keep waiting till there is a message ‘You BIOS was programmed successfully’. To conclude, confirm restarting the system, which is necessary for the video card to work with the new BIOS.


Flashing using the command line

The most useful ATIFlash commands are the following:

  • exe –I – This command displays a list of installed video cards in the AMD system. It is useful for flashing the BIOS on a specific video card.
  • exe -p <video card number> <file name> - It flashes the video card with the specified BIOS number from the specified file.
  • exe -pa <file name> - It is used to flash all video cards with the specified BIOS file.




Possible errors

  • ‘subsystem id mismatch’ shows the wrong choice for flashing or the wrong size.
  • ‘adapter not found’ requires revision in ‘Device Manager’.
  • ‘cannot find discrete ati video card’ can be fixed by inserting a video card directly or programing cards separately.
  • ‘failed to read rom’ indicates a wrong flashing file.
  • the computer freezes after updating the BIOS of a video card. In this case, it is recommended to disable the video card before the flashing using ‘Device Manager’.
  • the video card is displayed in the system, but does not work after updating the BIOS and rebooting. The reason might be new drivers that block the operation of video cards with the unsigned BIOS.

To conclude, download ATIFlash utility to run the program for flashing BIOS. The latest version is ATIFlash  2.84 that works properly on Windows 10 on a 64-bit version. In case it does not work, it is advised to download ATIFlash 2.77.

5 thoughts on “Download ATIFlash to Flash Your BIOS

    I have a Gigabyte RX 480 G1 Gaming 8G. I tried updating the the VBIOS in Windows by running an executable downloaded from Gigabytes website. It said flash successful, asked me if I’d like to restart and I clicked yes. Computer stayed running a little while with a black screen, and eventually I clicked power button and it turned off. After that I can’t get any output from the card, and can’t even boot into windows unless I remove the power connector from the card (even with iGPU set to on in BIOS).

    So I set about trying to unbrick it. I tried using this guide:
    However, I ran into a couple issues. First off, if I try to use the HP USB Format tool they recommend to create a bootable USB, it throws an error and fails. Ok, so I used a tool called Rufus to create a bootable DOS USB, seems to work fine. I then copied ATIFLASH.exe and the .rom file onto the USB and successfully booted from it from within my BIOS. However, when I try to run any commands with ATIFLASH, it just says: “This program cannot be run in DOS mode”.

    I’m at a loss here, any ideas?

    Insert a USB flash drive into a running computer.
    Open a Command Prompt window as an administrator.
    Type diskpart.
    In the new command line window that opens, to determine the USB flash drive number or drive letter, at the command prompt, type list disk, and then click ENTER. The list disk command displays all the disks on the computer. Note the drive number or drive letter of the USB flash drive.
    At the command prompt, type select disk , where X is the drive number or drive letter of the USB flash drive, and then click ENTER.
    Type clean, and the click ENTER. This command deletes all data from the USB flash drive.
    To create a new primary partition on the USB flash drive, type create part pri, and then click ENTER.
    To select the partition that you just created, type select part 1, and then click ENTER.
    To format the partition, type format fs=ntfs quick, and then click ENTER.

    If your server platform supports Unified Extensible Firmware Interface (UEFI), you should format the USB flash drive as FAT32 rather than as NTFS. To format the partition as FAT32, type format fs=fat32 quick, and then click ENTER.
    Type active, and then click ENTER.
    Type exit, and then click ENTER.

    Managed to get it working. With the graphics card power connector disconnected (so I was able to boot into Windows), I opened up device manager, showed hidden devices, and uninstalled the RX 480 display adapter (and checked the box to uninstall driver software when prompted). After that, I was able to use ATIFlash to flash the BIOS successfully, and then reinstalled AMD drivers just to be safe.

    Thanks for your help.

    Glad to see Techpowerup is on the ball with keeping ATIFLASH current. There is nothing more frustrating then having to pop a card in another machine, just to flash a GPU bios.
