  1. vBIOS mod tested on my PowerColor RX 5600XT Red Devil and running smoothly (3DMark run, ~1000 points over original 14Gbps vBIOS, ~10% improvement) The RX 5700 non XT is scared of the performance/price beast it has become! ~ HOW TO UNLOCK YOUR RX 5600XT ~ Warnings Having vBIOS selector switch is highly recommended, and of course the modification is done at your own risk 1. Always make a backup of your original vBIOS in .rom format exporting through GPU-Z or AMD Flash Utility 2.

Step 4 Once "insttool64.exe" is executed, we open CMD in administrator mode and execute these last commands cd c:/amdvbflash amdvbflash -p 0 5600microunlocked.rom After another restart your 5600XT would be unlocked and ready to go! Maximum overclock allowed by the modded vBIOS is 2100Mhz core @ 1200mV. With AMD Wattman it is possible to play with it as much as you want (always taking into account temperatures and stability) but it is highly recommended to tune the BIOS of your "new graphics card" with Igor´s More Power Tool and Red Bios Editor.
