Q4 has brought a nice breakthrough in the world of PC BIOS: the eye-candy UEFI version, a very neat 3D GUI which seems to fill the gap between the unexperienced user and the – until now – rather abstract, and even scary BIOS screen.
The new 3D BIOS from Gigabyte can run in two modes: the 3D and the Advanced mode, each boasting killer looks and improved functionality. While the 3D mode displays a picture of the actual motherboard you're working with, it also highlights the devices whose settings you're about to tweak.
The Advanced mode sports the traditional list look, but with far better graphics than the old black/ blue and yellow/white scheme.
Even more, the dual BIOS architecture brings two different ROMs sporting the second chip as a backup/ recovery unit for seamless and uninterrupted productivity. As for support, the new UEFI BIOS will work on the new X79 chipset motherboards.
Check the video below and see for yourselves how nice Gigabyte's 3D BIOS looks. And by all means, feel free to comment on the other new BIOS UIs and even bring forth some neat screenshots or movies!
