Bij Sharky Extreme hebben ze een review van de Gigabyte GA-BX2000 moederplank. Het ding heeft 2 BIOS chips, voor het geval er eentje uitvalt, wat soooo vaak gebeurd:
ow excuse us if we can't see the logic here, but frankly we were having a tough time understanding the need for this "technical innovation".
The staff at Sharky Extreme has tested over 75 mainboards during the past two years. We've done everything from overclock them to nearly double their intended speeds, to soldering and removing limiting components on the boards, to applying temperature reducing devices that reach near a negative 50 degrees C. Also, during the course of testing and whatnot, we've also downloaded or flashed various mainbord BIOSes hundreds of times over that period, at least twice a week on average.
The point of this diatribe is that never once, not one time, have we fried or wiped a mainboard's BIOS by accident.
Now call us talented or lucky (most likely not in that order) or whatever you want to call us, but don't tell us we need two BIOS chips on our plain jane regular system boards because we'll tell you that we don't.
Afgezien van het nutteloze DualBIOS zitten er geen bijzondere features op de GA-BX2000. Geen speciale busspeeds, geen SoftBIOS, niets.
