On my Video card page it says this:

http://www.asus.com/ca-en/Graphics_Cards/HD7870DC22GD5V2/#overviews

 

ASUS VGA Card UEFI VBIOS update tool
1. This tool only support ASUS MB with UEFI BIOS.
2. Update your ASUS VGA card's VBIOS from legacy VBIOS to UEFI VBIOS.
3. The tool can only be used under Vista, Win7, Win8.
4. The update processing is irreversible.(You cannot use legacy VBIOS any longer).
5. The old legacy VBIOS update on our website cannot be used any longer.

What, if any, is there a use or reason i would want to update my vbios to UEFI mode? My motherboard is an UEFI board by ASUS as well, the Crosshair V Formula -Z.

Thanks for any info on this.

Thanks

Is the update easy to do?

Has the Update been succesful in the past on other systems?

Have you done the update?

Does the update cause any problems with system performance in windows 8.1 x64?
