Asus Releases UEFI GOP VBIOS for its GeForce GTX 680

Asus has released an optional BIOS update that provides Graphics Output Protocol (GOP) and UEFI support for its GeForce GTX 680 graphics cards that will allow users to make full use of Windows 8's Fast Boot feature.

Richard Swinburne (MarshallR@ASUS) further notes in the ROG forums that users should not upgrade unless they want to use Windows 8 Fast Boot and that while it may work with other motherboards, Asus can only endorse compatibility with Asus motherboards.

Since graphics cards and motherboards that provide UEFI support are still relatively uncommon, we're quite excited for the release of this BIOS upgrade, which can be downloaded from Asus' WebStorage page.

    How often do you boot your machine anyway? Unless something requires a reboot or I need to mess with hardware, mine is in sleep mode when I am not using it. Have my power button set to sleep and resume, and have actually had someone comment that it boots really fast because they didn't realize it was only asleep. And it's not like an Ivy Bridge machine with an SSD take long to cold boot anyway.

    And it requires Windows 8, so most people can't make any use of it even if they have the hardware for it.

    i have a Palit Jetstream GTX670. i asked for the UFEI GOP supported firmware from Palit and they mailed me the flasher. but only after that i found out i need to have Windows installed in UFEI mode. i'm gonna convert my MBR disk to GPT using this guide after dinner.
