    Asus Crosshair VI Extreme still waiting on Bios 6808

    I see Asus launched a new bios with AGESA 0070 and it is available on the Crosshair VI Hero boards but so far not the Crosshair VI Extreme flagship. I get the flagship board has more features and maybe slightly more testing but this is almost exactly a week later and it is near identical to the C6H and even to an extent the C7H. This is becoming painful from a top tier motherboard maker.

    Anyone have a clue when the Crosshair VI Extreme will get Bios 6808?

    I have a feeling that the CHVIe will bunny hop the AGESA 0070 and go straight to AGESA 0072 as the x370 I gaming BIOS has been updated recently without using the AGESA 0070 and went straight to AGESA 0072

    I wouldnt be so quick to update. the latest 3bios have borked the 370 crosshair vi hero... the fans the cpu speed the temps reducing performance by a third...

    worst part is im unable to flash back to a much earlier bios as it now gives an error message saying 'not proper bios' or something similar... nightmare situation!

    this is becoming a bit of a joke now, x370 x470 boards have now had 3 iterations of BIOS updates "WITHOUT A SINGLE ONE" for the C6E THIS YEAR!! we are now well into the 4th month of the year.. What on earth is going on....

    Yeah this is really beginning to be a messed up situation. I am just hoping they get thier act together and release an update. I can accept if there was some big suprise update and that was why it took so long, but ASUS should do a better job of keeping their customers in the loop. Maybe create a site that shows when maybe to expect updates.....
