While GUIs for OS’s and CE devices have improved greatly over the years, there has been one major exception – the GUI for the motherboard BIOS. While we have moved over to UEFI for BIOS, the pace of UI improvements hasn’t done much in the last ten years- adding mouse support wasn’t enough folks.
Based on the image Gigabyte seems to plan to offer a highly customizable and high-resolution UEFI BIOS for the company’s upcoming Z87 “Haswell” motherboards.
Though all the details have been masked, it is readily apparent that the vast majority of real-time system data is available on the UEFI’s main screen, ending the need to navigate through a multitude of submenus to access this information. The firmware also appears to be highly customizable, offering users the ability to create custom tabs such as the one labelled “performance” in the teaser image.
We look forward to this Gigabyte’s and Way to Go!!!!
