Q: Is the fix a workaround that compromises other technology on the motherboard?

A: Absolutely not. We should have caught this in our internal QA process. Unfortunately, we didn't, and we have adjusted internal processes to make sure that this does not happen again. As the manufacturer of these products, we need to be absolutely certain that the quality of the product that is brought to market is top-notch and that the experience that consumers will be receiving is nothing but positive.

man sounds like someone got fired

Good to see that Nvidia is stepping up to the plate and not blaming it on someone else. Even better is that it was fixed in a rather timely manner. Makes me feel alot better about owning the board that I do, though I have had 0 problems with it to date. =D

Good on them for owning up to it. I like that in a company.

I've never had a problem with Nvidia. What boards haven't had there issues after first kick off? At least it's a bios related issue.

Cannot wait to get my hands on one of these boards. Poor Evga.

nVidia, always with their shenanigans.

They need to do what Intel does before releasing a chipset. Test the hell out of it and then fix whatever issues are encountered and then retest the chipset till it's prime and ready to go.
