DFI's "All new Genie Bios"

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hey guys, i'm debating between these two DFI boards, the Lanparty UT SLI-DR, and the Lanparty SLI-DR, I realize one comes with alot of stuff like cables and straps and an extra front panel thing which i don't really care about. But the difference that seems to strike me the most is the "all new Genie Bios" that i think the UT doesn't have and the regular has... the price difference between the boards is about $80. Does anyone know anything about this Genie Bios? is it worth the extra $80?. BTW specs for the boards can be found here

They both have a genie bios, but I think the LP has a few more options in the drop down boxes.

At least, that is how it is between my DFI LP SLI-DR Expert and DFI UT SLI-D.

BTW, it shouldn't be $80 to make the upgrade lol

Do a few price comparisons or check ebay.

well at this place i'm looking at in canada, the "DFI Lanparty nF4 SLI-DR" is $150 and the "DFI Lanparty UT nF4 SLI-DR" is $80. oops my math is off it's a $70 dollar difference. Then i looked at the two specs at the two links i posted above and the only difference seemed that one game with a whole bunch of stuff like cables and wrapping kit for UV glow and it mentioned a Genie bios while the "UT" didn't mention a Genie bios, other than that the specs seemed to be identical, some review site said they were the same board just shipped with different accessories. I just found it strange that they'd release a box that much more expensive because of the accessories and that such a good board could be going for $80.

The UT comes with a carrying case and stuff like that - the normal one only comes with the cables

The UT is discontinued I think
