WHAT. That's HUGE. My Z87 board still has an old BIOS, from June 12th.

Shameless self-interest here, but what about 7 and those 6 series with uefi updates?

It looks like they are releasing BIOS updates for some Z68 and Z77 motherboards, I just saw this: http://www.gigabyte.us/products/product-page.aspx?pid=4440#bios
"Remove SMMruntime service" in a BIOS updated 3 years after the last BIOS lol I guess if you are worried you should contact their tech support and ask for a bios.

I also contacted Gigabyte support and I got the same response that this issue does not apply to the 8/9 series chipset. I'm glad my Z97X-UD5H-BK is safe, saves me a lot of potential headaches and time.
