Some of NVIDIA's add-in board (AIB) partners have begun dishing out BIOS updates to add a potentially performance-enhancing feature to GeForce RTX 30 series graphics cards. That feature, of course, is Resizable BAR (Base Address Register), a PCI Express technology that promises to give gaming a boost in framerates on supported platforms

Despite most Z390 motherboards also being ready, it seems Intel is sticking to its guns with just 11th and 10th gen support in this rollout.  This must be a lock in the AMD and NVidia drivers.

 

For AMD or Nvidia to block certain. cards from using BAR, It would likely be the same sort of tech used to harm hash rates.

Well my BIOS for my mobo supports BAR, as does my GPU and even though my GPU BIOS was updated today via Precision X1, the new Nvidia BAR enabled drivers still say BAR is disabled oddly. Running a 5000 series CPU to. Will wait and see.

EVGA updated their z370 BIOS' to support resizable BAR for AMD and Nvidia GPUs. Not sure how this will affect performance on my 8086k yet though.

 

Here's the link to the matx z370 1.16 BIOS  https://www.evga.com/support/download/showdlinfo.aspx?id=17652&type=N&acctype=BIOS&accversion=1.16&part_number=121-KS-E375

 

Currently running with a 6900XT

...I'm sitting back for a bit ? and see if there will be updates on the updates on the mobo bios and v-bios for the r_BAR. I don't really like updating bios unless I have to, especially as I just spent a month chasing down rabbit holes for fine tuning hyperfast RAM settings ?
