Gigabyte have today released a video showing off their new Touch BIOS, it's innovative and user-friendly and available on all Gigabyte Z68-based motherboards. The BIOS has not really changed much in the past few, oh I don't know, decades... but there are a few companies with different takes on what they think the BIOS should be (or at least, how it should look and feel). Gigabyte have taken a path that brings familiarity to the concept in the form of an icon-based user experience. Take a look at the below video and see what you think.

The touch navigation obviously has requirements of a touch-enabled monitor plus Windows 7 in order to work. Mouse navigation is supposed with any monitor along with Windows XP/Vista and 7.
