And  now we get to use it on certain boards only: http://www.gigabyte.com/MicroSite/278/touch-bios.html

Now it's available also on H61/P61 platform too, not only on Z68 like it was from the very beginning. You need to upgrade the bios to at least below mentioned version:

H61M-USB3-B3 (Rev. 1.1) F8D
H61M-D2-B3 (Rev. 1.1)     F7C
H61M-S2V-B3 (Rev. 1.1)   F5E
H61M-S2P-B3 (Rev. 1.1)* F2B
H61M-S2-B3 (Rev. 1.0)     F2F
P61-USB3-B3 (Rev. 1.1)    F8B
P61-DS3-B3 (Rev. 1.1)      F3A
P61-S3-B3 (Rev. 1.0)        F4A
(* - coming soon)

(...)
Patience,I understand  it is coming to the AMD boards too!  ;)

Yes. GIGABYTE will also enable TouchBIOS support on AMD A75 and 900 series motherboards within next 2 weeks.

Well that will make a lot of members happy especially the AMD side as they kept thinking they were going to be left out of it. 8)

Maybe we are just trusted with the new technology first as we won't screw it up. ;)

No, what I would really like is, to win the lottery and escape to a warm sunny beach with several bottles of dark rum. The I wouldn't care what CPU I would be using.

Anyway, when Bulldozer finally comes along I think there will be few Intel guys looking over and feeling a bit jealous.  :P

Maybe we are just trusted with the new technology first as we won't screw it up. ;)

No, the reality is we will actually make proper use of the product, use it to its fullest extent and push the boundaries further than you Intel guys do.

But by the time that happens we should have the 2011 socket platform that will knock your toy Bulldozer out of the ring! Real power! ;D

 My usual method of waiting till things mature can be a double edged sword at time......runn3R is the X58A in the list now...... and stable ?
