EVGA shipping cards with multiple bios

Haven't seen anyone mention it yet, 780s are shipping with 2 sets while some 770s are shipping with 3, the rest, along with 760s, ship with 2 as well. I've seen several people on here unhappy with software OCing and also reluctant to flash their card for risk of ending up with a brick.

yep, this sounds like a good idea. I'm entered to win one but if I don't I won't be buying one.

Heh, a feature found on AMD's reference design. Nice to see that standard Nvidia cards will be getting it too.

What did you put on:

How would you use the EVGA Double BIOS? (max. 200 characters)?

and

Are there any additional features you would wish to see on a 2nd BIOS? (max. 200 characters)

I'll give you answers for those because I'd like to see EVGA implement this.

1. Switching between stock and overclocking BIOS's as well as having a backup BIOS in case of a bad flash.

2. Completely unlocked voltage control for the core and memory, as well as having GPU Boost disabled.
