    Lightbulb G752vy bios 304???

    I was fiddling around in device manager and came upon the section Firmware. After expanding it, System Firmware came up. I went to it's properties>driver where I noticed it said the driver is from 2006. Curious about why is it so old, i pressed update and got the update from online automatically. After rebooting, BIOS v304 for G752VY installed through the flash utility! Now, BIOS version shows up as 304 in hwinfo, and also in the system firmware in section Driver Version 10.1.2.304.
    See screenshot below:

    Does anyone have any info about this? I can't find anything on google about this version of bios.

    Also, a non related question. Why does this website cause my CPU to load up to 100% ???? It's not only on my laptop, also tried it on another one.

    I only see 303 in the download area, proceed causiously. you might PM Bahz and see if maybe you got ahold of a BETA BIOS?

    Is he an Asus representative? I will try to PM him, maybe reference him to this post. Have you tried doing what I suggested to see if it updates to this version too?

    Edit: When trying to PM him, I recieved this message: "Bahz has exceeded their stored private messages quota and cannot accept further messages until they clear some space."

    That's too bad. I guess we'll find out in the future if they release a new bios.

    Accidentally I did the same 'mistake' clicking on Update Firmware in Device Manager some minutes ago ;-) ! I also received BIOS 304 on my G752VY.

    I noticed that the CPU Microcode Update Revision is now BAh, which is excellent as this revision should include the necessary update for the Skylake Bug related to Hyper-Threading. So, I think, it is fixed now :-) ...

    But why wouldn't asus give us an official release? With a changelog included maybe. Did you notice any other differences? I don't know about the Skylake Bug, what did it do?

    Don’t pay much attention to the drivers date on things like this. If you go through the drivers you will find a lot of M$ drivers dated from 2006. As for a BIOS update I was always picky with the G752VY. Once they released 302 and it was working properly and stable I left it alone.*

    303 did it for me, and I haven't seen anything official beyond this?
