The potential of BD is there. Nobody can deny that...it does have potential. It's just a matter of figuring out what went wrong, whether its a chip problem, the reviewers didn't overclock properly, or if its a BIOS update that's badly needed.
Only time will tell.
I agree that it may be possible, but a lot of things are within the realm of possibility. Even within that realm, the possibility seems just heavily unlikely, sadly.
But yeah, I agree. I'd like to see this thing tested on a few other boards, particularly Gigabyte and MSI to see if the results deviate from the standard Asus board that was used.
The thing is though... Asus isn't particularly known for having poor boards or poor BIOS from my understanding.
