Thread Starter 

Sandy Bridge BIOS preview video from Maximum PC

post #2 of 35
Sweet. Hooray UEFI!

I don't really care how visually attractive it is.... as long as it shortens boot time!

Looks neat, but I don't see myself upgrading again for another few years. I'll probably buy whatever socket Intel is using when Win8 is released.

Do all SB boards have UEFI?
post #5 of 35
Thread Starter 
It appears so, most board makers want to switch to UEFI to get past the 2.2 Terabyte barrier for boot partitions. It is the replacement to the BIOS and I personally have been looking forward to having a UEFI capable motherboard.

no, gigabyte confirmed does not. But it does have support for UEFI, so they will probably implement it in the future.

I'm sure that some other brands will not have UEFI as well, so cut costs.

Can you turn off the TurboCrap?

Also, he says "ACHI" instead of AHCI...
