No, let's beta test on Intel first, iron out all the bugs and then let us AMD boys and girls run without issue!

 For a person that uses his monitor for image-editing while eating greasy sausages,...this is brilliant!........Gigabyte!........next generation! ... how about imbeded proximity sensors or imaging software with four cameras on the bezel edge so commands are excepted without physically touching the screen, ...20 to 40mm is doable ... game consoles are already doing it from 3 to 4 metres away...... or...... give me a recipe for grease-less
sausages.............food for thought. ;D

Having just spent quite a few hours removing greasy fingerprints from my monitors, (after a visit from some young family members, not from bacon butties), I love the idea of proximity sensors so you don't have to touch the screen at all. That or amputation !!

I agree. That's the only thing that has put me of touchscreens from the start. As absic says the ordinary screens that are not meant to be touched at all get bad enough from fingers being placed on the monitor that shouldn't be. My screens stay nice na dclean but only because they can't get past the security to even get near them!  ;D

Yes, I've heard the security is very tight at Broadmoor!  :D

It is a great idea, but the program doesnt work that well. For me anyway on the Z68-UD7

Are there any tricks to getting it to display anything other than blank blue screens?
I have installed/re installed several times, from web, from disk, etc.

Thanks,
Mike

There do seem to be a few minor problems with the latest version but people are unable to find the original version to return to. I think it would be a good idea to include it on the website for download.
