VGA BIOS update for Gigabyte Xtreme GTX1080 contains 2 diff BIOS sets...help.

Audio/Visual Club - Ars Technica OpenForum - arstechnica.com
I have a Gigabyte Xtreme Gamer GTX 1080 graphics card purchased Sept 2016 and I am having some texture glitch issues. It is running VGA BIOS that Gigabyte labelled as F1. There is an F2 update ("F2_Beta" sadly, dated Nov 2016) that a rep recommended I update to given my issue. So I download the update .zip through the Gigabyte app suite and when I unzip it I get TWO different BIOS folders.

N1080X8DH.F2_Beta/

N1080X8DP.F2_Beta/

Another guy in my shoes online asked Gigabyte which to use and he states they told him that "for the F2 bios, the DH folder version is for DVI/HDMI inputs and the DP folder version is for Display Port inputs."

What the hell does that mean? The board has 1 DVI, 1 HDMI, 3 DisplayPort connectors. (As well, there is a VR front plate that connects to two internal HDMI ports with cables out to the front plate that, when in use, disables two for the DisplayPort jacks.)

Which do I install? Or is it both? Getting no response from Gigabyte email support.

Anyone have any idea? I don't want to brick this $700 card. Thanks guys/gals.
