    The Embedded Controller is the one responsible with the power management and some other stuff for our notebook. It is a table with many values where each one represents something for the notebook. I only know of a few values that show the curent fan speed, the cpu/gpu temperature and the battery capacity. The other values I don't really know what they mean but each one has a specific way of monitoring or controlling the features of the notebook.
    So, all in all, an EC Firmware update is a good thing if they have made the right changes and haven't messed it up even more. By changing the EC they can also change the default fan profiles for the CPU/GPU and I'm still hoping that they'll change the damn fan profile for the CPU so people won't need NBFC to lower their temps.

    Can someone that has a laptop with i7-4850HQ/i7-4750HQ that officially released without G-Sync confirms G-sync was enabled after bios update?

    those g751jt configurations are not sold yet... are they?
    maybe will ship with g-sync enabled only
    like with previous bios, i think it won't enable g-sync on previous laptops....

    You can't access BIOS from a cold boot, you have to use restart and then hit F2. At least that's how it does it on mine.

    F2 will be working ONLY if you perform the full shutdown or soft reboot - as only this two options prevents the OS from Fast hybrid booting.
    Fast UEFI BOOT after hybrid shutdown (the default W8.1 shutdown) = NOT POSSIBLE to enter BIOS.

    I've had success getting into the bios from a cold boot two ways. Hold the left shift key while pressing power for Windows UEFI, or holding the delete key (not backspace) while pressing power. One of those should get you in there, good luck!

    On JT the only way to get to the bios is pressing ECHAP at boot or restart no difference there
