Update Package for NVIDIA Firmware (UPMF) is a new method used to distribute firmware to end users. Instead of providing multiple binary files (one for each board type) and burning them using the flint tool, the UPMF method requires only a single standalone file.
The UPMF is a self-extracting executable that contains a set of firmware binary images, and the mlxfwmanager firmware update tool.
Single file per firmware release
Simple 'one click' firmware update
Compact size (achieved by efficient compression of the firmware images)
No installation required
When executed, the UPMF:
Extracts its content into a temporary location
Scans the locally installed NVIDIA devices firmware versions
Performs firmware updates if needed
Cleans up temporary files
