The video card in BIOS was placed on the ROM before and therefore could not be replaced. But because of the newest technology, the manufacturers put this on a flash memory chip. For a reason that, just like any other software, BIOS can also have programming errors or hardware issues.

I’m not sure if this is possible. Video cards are made as is and are not intended to be reprogrammed by any knowledgeable programmer. And I think even if you made a way on how to reprogram or flash the video BIOS of the video card, it is still not advisable and does not guarantee that the newly installed video BIOS will work.

The original BIOS of the video card is made specific to the capabilities of the device. If you made it possible to replace it there is the possibility of damaging the hardware since you don’t have the exact details of the video card’s components.

If you want to upgrade the video card, try updating its driver to make it work more efficiently and not the program inside the device. It is just like overclocking a processor that usually leads to damaging the entire CPU including the hard drive.
