"The system BIOS has the ability to allow other BIOS chips that are located on adapters (such as the video card) to load software that is loaded in the card’s BIOS."

Taken from a computer training manual.

The way that I understand the sentence above is that you can update the video card's BIOS via the system board's BIOS. Does anyone else have a different opinion to my interpretation?

Or you can update the video card's BIOS or other card BIOS via firmware/BIOS updates  of system board.
