It's an acronym guys

But yeah they've been saying this for years. Since i joined OCN i've seen at least 2 or 3 threads that said this. to pull it off, as Duckie said, you'd need a MAJOR manufacturer to do it. I think Foxconn would do it the easiest (they're in Dells and HPs IIRC), but Gigabyte and Asus might also manage it

Foxconn just builds for companies.... The OEMs would have to request it.... Someone has to push the OEMs to make the consumer-side switch.

So before I read this article - let me guess... something like EFI?

Quote:
According to the MSI mole, the first new UEFI products will be based on Intel's Sandy Bridge chipset, spanning the whole field from entry-level boards to high-end kit.
BINGO

Next step: No more MBR... time for GPT

How many times has this been predicted? My guess is that the bios will probably still be around as long as the motherboard continues to be a relevant as a all-in-one system bus. I am thinking at least ten more years. These fancy EFI's don't provide any extra functionality. If you are in the bios in the first place, that is all you care about.

Maybe more instant boot stuff, but the text based bios is plenty sufficient.

I dont know that much about BIOS except for messing around with settings and such. But whats wrong with BIOS? Why does it need to be replaced?

Legacy BIOS can't boot directly from a GPT disk AFAIK. Itanium systems have been using EFI so they can boot with GPT volumes. GPT is used for disks that need partitions greater than 2TB. Also, it theoretically allows unlimited partitions(But Windows limits it to 128, I think).
