After the -V run the machine still booted and behaves normally. :-) Here the relevant lines from the output:
Found chipset "NVIDIA MCP65", enabling flash write... chipset PCI ID is 10de:0441 Probing for Winbond W25x80, 1024 KB: probe_spi_rdid_generic: id1 0xef, id2 0x3014 Found chip "Winbond W25x80" (1024 KB, SPI) at physical address 0xfff00000.
Not sure if that's relevant, but I seem have the same board and my results differ:

It's not unusual for mainboard vendors to use multiple sources for flash chips. The two flash chips in question speak the same protocol and have the same size, and are compatible. Due to that, the only deciding factors are price and availability. Programming speed may or may not be a factor, but it usually improves each time the production process is upgraded, so it might make sense to switch vendors multiple times.
