GIGABYTE P67A-UD4 (Intel P67 Express) Motherboard Review - The BIOS

After taking a look at the P67A-UD7 with the launch of Sandy Bridge, we come around to P67A-UD4. Can the UD7's little brother hold up the family name?

The BIOS on the UD4 much like the UD7 still comes in the old fashioned format. Although you can get the EFI BIOS on the UD4, many have bought this board without it, so we will test it with what is pretty much the shipping version of the BIOS for most people. We may return and cover the UD4 with the EFI BIOS at a later date but for now this is what we will be working with.

The Motherboard Intelligent Tweaker (M.I.T.) is one that you will want to hang out in. After all, it gives you everything you need to get your board tweaked for the best performance. This includes current status CPU adjustments, advanced memory settings and of course all of your voltage tweaks.

GIGABYTE has broken everything down into pages. In some ways this is nice as it keeps things clean, but in others it is a pain due to the amount of moving around you have to do.

Of course, you still have the other sections that you need just to get things going like the Integrated Peripherals page.

Power Management is still here with the usual settings. Really, there is not much difference here between the X58, P55 and the P67.

The Boot menu is what you would expect. Not much to talk about here; even the PC Health Page is typical.

Same thing for the Tools page with the exception of the ability to look at the programmed SPD information for your RAM.
