Firmware 

The Z590 Vision G BIOS doesn’t look any different from the Z490 versions. It retains the black, white and gold theme we’re familiar with on other Vision boards. We’ve captured a majority of the BIOS screens to share with you. Like other board partners, Gigabyte includes an Easy Mode for high-level monitoring and adjustments, along with an Advanced section. The BIOS is well organized, with many of the more commonly used functions easily accessible without drilling down multiple levels to find them. Overall, the BIOS works well and is easy to navigate and read.
