Interesting thing i ran into today, sense all the motherboards got a new version of BIOs they seemed to now officially work with up comming bulldozer cpus. Here is a list of compatibile CPUs for AM3+ boards. (Was not specifically listed prior to current 8/29/11 bios updates for all boards)

THIS is from the Gigabyte site:
F4
1.Update CPU AGESA 0.0.9.2 for AM3+
2.Update Dolby Home Theater version
3.Add Touch BIOS support
Taken from the bios download page for the FXA-UD7
Nowhere on Gigabyte download page for FXA-UD3 bios does it show an F3 bios with those added items.

Is Touch BIOS only for UD-7 and UD3? I saw in Gigabyte website, it didn't show "Add Touch BIOS support" in UD-5 BIOS. I ask because I wanna to buy UD-5 soon, so I want to make sure it has also.

I'm wondering the same as above.

As well, it seems the ONLY difference between the UD5 and the UD7 is an extra PCI 2.0 slot and the gold striping instead of blue. And they want an extra 70 bucks for that. Or is there something else I'm not seeing in the specs?

Else where I have been moaned at in a roundabout way regarding the so called F3 for 990FXA-UD3 that has been talked about on here.
Regardless of what certain people have said, this F3 bios(official)does NOT include the use of"touch bios" or any form of control for cpu vdroop or whatever.
HOW can a bios that is a regular bios include support for"touch bios"?
Also there was some mention of a certain setting for a rev 1.1 board?
Again that makes no sense(settings for a rev 1.1 board when it is a rev 1.0 board???
It can be proved that text regarding settings for the UD7 board have been included or added to the actual text for what is a 990FXA-UD3 board.
Fact: there is no support for touch bios in the F3 bios for the 990FXA-UD3 nor is there support for any form of control for vdroop.

Same here. Tried to reinstall dolby again from the drivers disk that came with the mobo, but it fails. Maybe we'll get another update for that tomorrow.. tongue.gif
