@gr8sho,

As I mentioned, the eprom's in the first Crosshair V boards are said to be defective. In fact, there was an entire thread on OCN devoted to that issue. And Googling will tell you the same thing.

EPROM = Erasable Programmable Read Only Memory.

So by definition you can erase an EPROM and reprogram it. However, doing so will accomplish nothing if the chip itself is defective.

I know. Mine was. As were those of many others.

As a result, I don't think this is so much an issue to be debated as much as it is a factor to consider if you are having BIOS problems on your Crosshair V - or even on other boards.

By way of perspective the Intel CPU's with the MMX were initially defective. And Intel fixed the problem before releasing it into production. These things happen.

Okay, I'm intrigued by this more now. Does the part contain both a ROM and an EEPROM then? Because if capacity was an issue, the old part would not be able to accept the more recent BIOS payloads.

And for those of you that have never seen a Rampage III extreme, that bad boy actually has two of these parts you can switch back and forth between. AMD ROG boards, at least the more recent vintage was not graced with this feature, but frankly I'm not feeling all that bad about it.

There is no debate. I'm just trying to understand what the defect in the part was, that's all.

About your earlier point about lack of innovation in the past 3 years, can you help me understand what happened 3 years ago that was such a big step it got your attention?

Just speaking for myself, I thought the 4 core CPU AMD put out known as the Phenom II X4 was pretty cool back in the day.

An 8 core is pretty slick too technology-wise. Too bad performance is what it is. If AMD could get the design onto a 22nm chip, they might have more real-estate to improve performance.

GPUs also seem to be making massive gains. One GTX 660Ti looks to fully eclipse my GTX 460-SLI setup and then some, so looking forward to that upgrade.

There are probably more. But you do have to be careful. I do see some newer offerings that skimp in certain areas.

I'm having some difficulty understanding your post or what information you are seeking.

Regarding your question

I can only answer that the last hardware I purchased was the AMD 1090T CPU and the Crosshair V board. Since then I have seen no progress in hardware or OS.

Actually, nothing happened 3 years ago that was enough to really get my attention, so to speak. It's just that I feel progress in both hardware and OS in effect stopped maturing at that time.

There is some talk about the coming "Quantum CPU's" but I'm pretty sure they won't be here any time soon. wink.gif

guys I am having some real issues with the lan... recently updated to windows 8, I am using the latest drivers from the intel site. now I have tried 3 different lan cables, and updated the bios to 1703, re-installed the drivers. windows is still telling me "network cable unplugged" now sometimes it will work for about 5-10 minutes then just goes back to unplugged status. anyone else have this problem?? I've heard of people RMAing the board because of lan issues?

It's a mistake, a piece of trash, a virus, for the dumb people who can't use a Start Menu, Taskbar and desktop.
