nvidia says (at the link below):

"You will need to contact your graphics card manufacturer for the latest custom UEFI / video BIOS for your graphics card. Flashing a graphics card with an incompatible or untested version can permanently damage your graphics card."

Flashing new firmware into a GPU is, in my experience, a dangerous crapshoot.  About half the time it fails and you end up with an unrepairable, expensive brick.  Even when it succeeds, the likelihood that it will improve mining performance is very small because mining doesn't use the GPU's BIOS to any extent.  When using GPUs for non-graphics purposes the application software directly programs the graphics engines and that is independent of the firmware except for when the programming is loaded or results are extracted.
