    Asus i demand an answer, now!

    ASUS YOU RIP OFF CON MERCHANTS!

    B SERIES BOARDS GET AGESA 1.0.06 AND ROG DOESN'T? IS THIS NEGLECT WHAT YOU CALL PREMIUM????

    You're giving people with HALF THE COST BOARDS Access to BIOS Updates FIRST? ARE YOU SERIOUS?!

    In what WORLD do you think this is acceptable? In what legal sense can you remotely call it premium?

    The biggest pile of marketing dribble I've ever seen in my LIFE!

    Good luck with that one, mate -- but I can't figure it out either except maybe statistically.

    If we were to look at a distribution of sales volume for the boards, the highest and lowest level boards would be at the margins of whatever "bell curve" results from plotting it. The solid majority of customers will be in some lower cost X370's and all the B350 offerings with most probably buying a B350 board.

    So, if you're going to piss off customers, are you going to piss off a LOT of them or just the few at the top end? You know your resources are limited to churn these things out, so with this botched rollout, you ARE going to have to piss off someone.

    Somebody at ASUS has made that decision and though there's some logic in it from a corporate point of view, it still sucks all sorts of obscene things.
    Tired of trolls and mods that act like this platform has no problems and it's the users fault. Later.

    And acutally we already got beta bioses with 1.0.6 they arent on the website thats it xD...

    Probably Asus is thinking their customers that buy the premium boards are inteligent enough to just use the beta from the forum ...

    They have it on normal x370 boards, that's the exact same chipset. There is literally ZERO excuse for not including the ROG.

    Whilst I agree with distribution, any PC Manufacturer will aim at their premium, maximum profit line, which is ROG, RBG ROG Elements are a massive markup and there's gamers out there handing over their cash just for the label.

    If it was such a bad money maker for them why would they be giving the boards for free to overclockers and sponsoring every gamer / event with ROG?

    It's just utterly disappointing and I actually find it rather offensive.

    I hope you're joking. Because otherwise you're being an insulting "blame the customer" fan-boi. We are so far past DEFENDING ASUS that it's not funny anymore and just kind of pathetic to do so.

    That's exactly the type of MORONIC response I was expecting. BETA Means nothing, why should we be using BETA when other boards have Official releases? I'll let you off; You're a sheep you know nothing better.

    Correct, so why haven't these idiots bothered to do it the same for the ROG then?

    Regardless to that, previously the B Series boards have had more BIOS updates, we've not had an official update in over a month, which is bang out of order for a premium motherboard, at this point in time, where updates are totally crucial.

    Here's what you're paying for Boys and Girls:

    ASUS ROG Crosshair 6 HERO

    3x BIOS Updates since 2017/03/13.



    ASUS B350-PLUS

    7x BIOS Updates since 2017/03/23.
    9 display total.


    Forum BIOS's are irrelevent, some of us don't always have the time to sit and check through 100 forums posts or see if there's an update.

    Checking a page is all there should need to be - and the BETA BIOS's show for other products why not ROG?
