Get y’er BIOS updates! BIOS updates here!
Intel 5th Gen (Broadwell) CPU support is here (even if the LGA chips aren’t quite yet), but it’s good to be ready for your upgrade! See the list motherboard BIOS versions inside.
Rampage V Extreme and ASUS X99 series owners looking to boost performance can try tweaking the cache bus frequency, while extreme overclocking users can even exclusively boost the voltage to reach the absolute limits. The cache bus frequency is the internal interconnect that loops together CPU cores, L3 cache, PCI-Express and the memory controller together, so a speed up to this subsystem and everything that needs to talk to each other, gets the message across that much quicker!
Since the Z87 Deluxe/SATA Express ASUS has been working extensively with Intel and SATA Express SSD chipset manufacturers in developing compatibility and performance reliability for the new standard. Today ASUS is announcing that the joint BIOS development teams have yielded a breakthrough in design, and will implement a technology that is critical for SATA Express to perform at its best — the Separate Reference Clock with Independent Spread Spectrum Clocking Architecture, or SRIS for short.
JJ takes us through the ROG RAIDR Express: the PCI-Express SSD that will exceed SATA III speeds at 830/810MB/s (read/write). You can install your OS to it and it’s even got a UEFI BIOS on it so you can fast-boot Windows 8 (even faster!). See the video below for the live action example.
Tech site Ocaholic has gone nuts with the Maximus VI Gene, producing an entire UEFI BIOS breakdown of 152 screenshots and full review of the new micro ATX ROG board.
