Great to see a manufacturer embracing the idea of transparency. Now everyone can test this BIOS and see how it performs!
Go OC 2010 worldwide final is just over a week away! GIGABYTE team and judges have done some bios testing and troubleshooting to provide a solid bios for the finals. We are going to release this bios in public today for competitors and media to review and use before the finals if they wish to. It will be accompanied by a guide and some handy voltage read points for GA-X58A-UD7 (rev2.0) motherboards which form part of the competition OC gear platform.
One of the key performance aspects the bios was tested for is 32M SuperPi as it is one of the benchmarks which will have a strong impact on the competition. The bios is very efficient as per this 4Ghz test. NB clocking on this particular CPU was also solid clocking to 5.2Ghz 32M stable NB frequency in a separate test which may benefit some of the benchmarks chosen for the final.
