From what I can see, it's just a clean, standard EUFI implementation with an option to have a 3D image of the motherboard that can be used specifically to highlight components and what said components do and function as.

Really, people.
Ok, I will explain to you why it sucks. It sucks because it is gimmicky, because it serves no purpose, because it is not intuitive (as much as some of you may think that it is), and because it will just plain make it more difficult for people to navigate and identify where various settings get adjusted. If you were not a tech savvy user, just an average user, and I told you to click on the Southbridge to adjust the voltages what do you think would happen? How about if I said click on the BIOS/UEFI chip to adjust settings for OC profiles? Do you think you would know how?

Stupid idea is stupid, as much as somebody may think that it is a good idea because it is flashy. These types of garbage gimmicks do nothing but take away from development time on other more important features. It's like all the ASUS crap that they put out every year with their boards, OC dashboard hardware, OC keys, etc. All crap.

Everybody here who is getting their panties all in a bunch, well, you know what you will do first when you see this? You will change to advanced mode and forget that this was ever added to the UEFI. So much for a useful feature

For me it looks more isometric than 3D.

The isometric motherboard picture is good for those who assembled the motherboard. However, those that had the computer built for them would not understand what each part of the motherboard does. Then again, they might not know how to get into the UEFI/BIOS screen anyway.

I am sorry did you miss the part that the 3D part is optional? when you enter BIOS you actually don't enter the 3D BIOS you enter the advanced BIOS, and you can click 3D. That is what it looks like to me in the video.

Now all they need to do is to add fan control through users being able to select individual fan ports on the board, and then add temperature readings on the boards.

Like take this into consideration, their G1 series boards, have 5 PWM fan ports, each individually controllable, and those 5 fan ports are interlinked to 5 separate temp sensors located in the same region as the fan port, and you can use SMART fan settings to link the change in temp on the board in that area to the fan speed. So now add a GUI that allows a new users to actually see that fan1 is in the top right hand corner, and you got a nice BIOS. The possibilities are very good.

BTW don't be surprised if GB can pull off a nice UEFI, they did aquire the award BIOS team.

Really. Did you even think before you typed this out, or did you just get upset that someone called you out and decided then to go on some trivial, full-blown rant.

You can disable the advanced 3D display; in other words, it's optional. Gigabyte's UEFI is just like any other UEFI. Fine, don't use the 3D display. You don't have to. No big deal. It'll work just like any other EUFI in this situation.

In addition, from what I could see from the video, the 3D highlighting option merely allows users to determine what specific component does what and what options are available to said component.

If you cannot figure out how tweaking said components work even after being given an explanation, maybe overclocking isn't the smartest move to begin with? Because not having an explanation surely isn't going to help the situation.

So, what are you upset about aside from someone calling you out? What do you want Gigabyte or Asus to spend time developing in terms of EUFI? You haven't given anything. You just rambled on with conjecture. At least give a proper explanation on what you think they should be spending time developing.

I want better quality boards, for instance an X79 board that is equivalent to the X58A-OC. Effort is better spent there than on useless graphics tweaks to the UEFI like the "3D view". It seems that this

If I'm not mistaken, board development (components, layout, etc) is a separate team than BIOS development or UEFI.

That being said, I don't disagree with your statement about making boards equivalent to the X58A-OC in terms of quality. The UD7 X79 is supposedly the replacement for the X58-OC board; however, the VRM and capacitors aren't of the same calibre if memory serves me correct.

I don't know how easy it would be to bring the quality that they brought to the X58 OC board to mainstream or even most enthusiast level boards without charging a fair chunk extra. I would think this applies to most manufactures though.
