Hot Off The Press – New UEFI – BIOS Updates – Firmware – January 2014

As any enthusiast knows hardware only takes you so far. When considering what affects your experience with component products whether it be a motherboard, graphics card or a router, firmware makes a big difference. Firmware affects almost all areas of the product whether it be performance, compatibility / interoprability, reliability as well as general functionality and even the GUI.  This is an area ASUS has spent considerable time and effort, committing a large number of its internal resources to ensure we have leading firmware that provides a superior user experience. In this new ongoing series we will be covering new updates as they are released. We will be noting what type improvements they enable or implement. Additionally as drivers can also affect performance considerably we  will do our best to give you visibility on important driver releases that can provide or enable new functionality, resolves issues or overall improve the user experience.
