The latest BIOS for M12A is still ancient version of January. What the hell?
I still don't get whether he mods these bioses himself or if the team at Asus is working on beta bioses behinds the scenes and he uploads them here. If it's the later, why does Asus not update the beta bioses on their website? (2004 is still the latest version)
Certainly the quality of the Asus beta releases has been pretty good in general (I can compare to Gigabyte z390 master, which was a pretty awful chaotic mess). The latest 2103 is the best BIOS I have run for 10th gen processor for OC stability. They really are well past time for cutrting an officially supported release though.Not like it is only Asus, look at MSI and Gigabyte support pages for the latest bios for z490. I have an MSI Unify z490 mb and it is the same thing. Asus has the most up to date bios support that I know of(on higher end boards).
The grass is always greener on the other side for some people ..............
Except that recent z490 beta BIOS that with non-functional fan control. Asus promptly fixed it though. So I would say that is not always the case.I started out on a beta BIOS with my ASUS ROG STRIX B550-F GAMING and I've had no problems with it (I used flashback before installing the CPU). Sure, it's not a Z490, but it's still an ASUS beta BIOS. The last motherboard I had is an ASUS P8P67 EVO which I bought in July 2011, and I only used the BIOS it came with for the first few days and then I put a beta BIOS on it and used that until just 2 weeks ago when I upgraded to the B550-F. I never had any problems with that beta BIOS either.
So to me, when ASUS releases a beta BIOS, it's good enough for everyone and I think they may as well just call it a finished stable release.
