    Is Maximus VIII EOL For Updates From ASUS?

    Hello!

    Well from the looks of it the updates and life of this board are dead, or are they?

    Not seeing any new BIOS updates with all the Intel BS going on, makes me think it's dead, and doesn't make one feel comfortable...

    So is this board's support from ASUS EOL?

    THANKS

    Maximus VIII EOL For Updates

    Yep!

    I RMA’d a VIII Extreme Assembly motherboard for a SupremeFX Hi-FI DAC low microphone level output about a year ago (SupremeFX Hi-Fi DAC driver issue). And was informed by ASUS Support that the motherboard reached EOL and no updates for drivers or BIOS will be released.

    I should of looked online harder, seems to of stopped as of last year with the BIOS...

    Anyhow my mobo is going strong, I'm more concerned about 2 things, Intel security and keeping performance current with modern game titles.
