will the current GB p67 boards be efi possible?

What I mean is if I got the p67-ud7 for example would a simple bios update allow for uefi or does it require a certain chip? I dont want a board that isnt uefi but at the same time the all black is so awesome

I'm pretty sure they will not. EFI requires a larger storage space as opposed to the BIOS chips that come on these boards.

EDIT: The BIOS chip on the UD7 is 32Mbit, same as ASUS' current UEFI motherboards, so lets hope for the best

Was just reading a review from some1 here on ocn and it said this: "ALERT! I want to mention that each BIOS is a 32Mbit Flash Award bios, not 16Mbit like in the past, this means future support for EFI, as easy as flashing the BIOS!!! So ASUS has EFI and GIGABYTE has support for EFI. I like the fact that they give you the option, because right now we don’t know how stable EFI is for overclocking or in general!"

from http://www.overclock.net/intel-mothe...ew-review.html

Is this true? if so is it true for the ud5/4 as well?

these BIOS chips on these boards are big enough for UEFI. They are UEFI Capable.

I think the guy above you answered your question. Gigabyte is just getting it perfected.

Your UD9 has dual 8MBit BIOSes, my UD7 has dual 32MBit BIOSes, there is no reason to put those chips there for nothing. UEFI boot loader is already in there, no GUi yet tho.
