Hello Alexander,

yes please send a verbose log (probing for the chip is good enough for
now, no need to read/write).
Can you confirm that this is the board in question?

You seem to be under the impression that the graphics core uses a
separate flash chip for its firmware. This is probably not the case.
Instead it shares it with the "BIOS" chip that flashrom accesses.
Kind regards/Mit freundlichen Grüßen, Stefan Tauner
