  1. Intel isn’t the only company working hard to prepare new products for the next-generation Haswell platform. Gigabyte is working to revamp their UEFI on Haswell motherboards and judging from a teaser shot that recently found its way to Facebook, there...

    Awesome that seems like a pretty big improvement. I usually go with Gigabyte motherboards as well.

    About time they made the bios screen resolution friendly. Just bring our the motherboards already stop teasing.

    My BIOS still with the good ol' blue background and white text, this really makes me drool! ;)
  5. Wow, now that's a BIOS screen!
  6. Every one calls the CMOS ..BIOS .. when in fact .. BIOS is the software that boots first.. then gives you the option to enter the CMOS .. settings.

    then you complete your POST ... and start the OS booting ..

    that is how it was done up until Sandybrige ? .. when UEFI took place ?

    any ways .. im old school!

  8. I was relieved to see that there is an "F2 Classic Mode" choice. With the plethora of choices and settings, it can make an old-timer's head spin.

    I may buy a Gigabyte board now. I have only used ASUS over the years.

    FWIW, although maybe not as sophisticated, the last three ASRock motherboards I used had a UEFI. The motherboards were for Intel socket 1155 and AMD socket AM3+.

    I like the intro part about Intel working hard... did it ever? really? They are a monopoly now, they are just oozing in with the "new" products.

    As for the new BIOS, that's nice. Stick a Web Browser in, and we are done - call it BI-OS! :)

    I thought that's what a lot of the 'Quick Start'-like features were. Basic web browsers booting off flash.
