What does this mean? That the driver will activate it or that an GPU needs like an BIOS update?...Quote

You need to flash the BIOS supplied by the AIBs. I did my gaming x trio 3080 this morning, takes like 6 seconds.Quote

Which is? Just Nvidia’s new driver or an BIOS update?... As firmware to me sounds as both an driver and BIOS update. Since they are both ”firmware”.Quote

The driver will enable the feature. The BIOS is required to be updated to provide the feature so the driver can use the feature.Quote
