Based on the way I am reading it this I would expect they would have you update to these Bios only if you are going to be using a 3rd generation Intel® Core™ processor on this board. There are a couple hardware feature changes that get enabled for the 3rd generation Intel Core processors that are not used with the 2nd generation Intel Core processors.
I though that myself but I'm new to bios updates and i know the dangers hence the reason I came here first.
It has been 1.4 years since they have had a bios update for SandyBridge though. Does that mean they have gotten it perfect for SB (probably not) or does it mean they are just forgetting about SB (maybe)?
I was just hoping to take advantage of the "Enhanced PCI-E display card performance" in the newest update.
Thanks for the reply.
