Gigabyte Reveals Customisable High-Resolution UEFI For Haswell Motherboards

/ 3 years ago


In the last few years we have witnessed something of a BIOS revolution with the introduction of a UEFI graphical interface. Interestingly it looks as though that revolution is going to continue with the arrival of Haswell as Gigabyte have revealed their latest UEFI BIOS design. As you can see from the above image (click on the image for an enlarged version) the new Gigabyte BIOS uses a full 1080p resolution layout. The “Resolution” selection area at the bottom right would suggest that you can even change the UEFI resolution depending on your own preferences.

You may have noticed a lot of things are blurred out, this is because Gigabyte has to abide by Intel NDA rules on Haswell and Z87, but we can still see fully the rest of the UEFI design. Around the edges we get real time CPU, memory and system status updates, a pretty nifty feature when you are playing around with settings in the UEFI. As far as the options go you can see for yourself, but there are huge number of customisable options that are sure to satsify the needs of the most basic all the way up to the most advanced Haswell user.

We will be sure to bring you full coverage of Gigabyte’s new UEFI BIOS when we get a Haswell Z87 motherboard out for review at some point in the not-so-distant future. What are your thoughts on the appearance and functionality of Gigabyte’s new UEFI BIOS?
