Maybe some on here can tell if Gigabyte will release UEFI BIOS for

Z68X-UD5-B3 ?

Wait is annoying since cheaper models already have UEFI if I'm correct ;)
U1a and U1b has been released,but failed,due to board hardware incompatibilities with UEFI BIOS.

Does anyone know what the typical timescale is between a Beta BIOS release, and its 'final' counterpart?

My Z77-D3H is at F18, which was the last final (i.e. non-beta) release. There was a beta BIOS (F19g) released in November 2012, but it's been in beta for almost a year now.
F21 is already posted on TT forum.
Seems that you guys didn't follows well this thread.

Thanks for the reply. :)

I did see the post above that states F21 is available, however when I looked on TT forums the impression I got was that it's another Beta BIOS, is that not correct though? I was also just puzzled why Gigabyte's official download pages still show F19g as the latest release - don't they always update their pages?

Mostly of Z77 BIOS's on GB web page is from 2012.
They has been very busy with Z87 and now with X79 BIOS.....so maybe they will update web page soon.

Any change we're going to ever see a production released BIOS for the G1.Assassin2 X79 Montherboard that actually support the latest intel SATA eRST / iRST code?  ...and a updated device ID so that we can actually update the Sound Blaster drivers?

It's all nice the people are hacking together firmware, but it be really nice if Gigabyte took some responsibility and fixed these issues.

This IS causing issues, as I just go done building a cluster computer at a University, and we ended up going with a competitor's standard motherboard series for exactly this reason.  About $500,000 worth of motherboards alone....

Can you please help me?

I have X79-UP4 and updated with the latest F4 bios.
Since i have done it i cannot overclock my 3930k at all.

Changing CPU ratio from 32 to anything else has no effect at all.

Now i want to revert back to an older bios but i cant.

Q-Flash says the bios i want to flash is outdated and @BIOS also says i cannot flash.

What can i do?

Probably you didn't read latest news....
http://wccftech.com/idf13-gigabyte-shows-g1-assassin-3-x79-chipset-motherboard-ivy-bridgee-processors/

You've got to be joking.

How are they the 10 SATA controllers?  Using a non-intel SATA controller with poor input... the details we not exactly clear.

Anyway: So the answer is is "buy a new $350.00 motherboard?" Wow.  Now I'm really glad we didn't use their motherboards.

Try to flash with modded BIOS F4,which you will found here:

As is some Intel Microcode added and updated.

I have tried 4-5 different BIOS but still face the same problem.

I disable intel turbo boost and all energy saving features and i just change the main ratio from 32 to 39-40-41 , no matter what i set when i reboot and re-enter bios the max i see is 3800 instead of eg 4000.

Dunno what to do

Any suggestions?
