So Today when I was installing some recently arrived hardware, I found a tiny little switch on My Video Card.

Nothing about this tiny little switch was included with my Card.
It's near the Crossfire finger, so I'd imagine it has something to do with Crossfiring the card.

What is it, And what does it do?

It's double bios switch. If you apparently would flash bios on the graphic card with wrong version, you can switch it to use the other (read only) as backup to fix the problems with the main one.

So, My Video Card has it's own BIOS?
That's interesting, Thanks for the (Fast)Response!

Every video card has its own BIOS.
