Asus Maximus IV Gene-Z BIOS UEFI and Test Setup
Asus Maximus IV Gene-Z Intel Z68 and Asus Matrix GTX580 Platinum Review: a guest post and review by Peter Lo
Asus Maximus IV Gene-Z BIOS UEFI
ROG boards are usually blue and grey menu interface but now it has full color display and icons added to the new interface called UEFI. It support mouse pointer for easier access on the menu.
Full color and better interface sets apart from the old BIOS. Scroll bar is implemented for easier setup on the settings.
UEFI has the screenshot feature that can be saved on flash drive, making it very useful on sharing your settings.
You can also view the memory modules factory timings and XMP profiles too for manual memory timing setup.
