GIGABYTE finally going the way of UEFI?!

A pleasant surprise came from GIGABYTE during IDF this past week with both word and somewhat evidential backing to their plan in FINALLY entering the glorious world of graphical mouse-driven BIOS'.

Despite being one of the largest players in the motherboard market, it could never have been predicted that GIGABYTE was going to stick to the ancient old workhorse known as AwardBIOS so long after almost every motherboard manufacturer, including the less influential mobs like BIOSTAR etc. had already turned to UEFI BIos coding.

The lads at LegitReviews were on the show floor at IDF and while they weren't able to take photos due to Intel's strict NDA policies, they did see GIGABYTE's upcoming X79-UD7 up and running, sporting the company's new UEFI DualBIOS. And thankfully, we can all get a taste of how it will look with GIGABYTE sending over some images of their own for LegitReviews to share with everyone.
