A new BIOS Update is available now for the EVGA X299 DARK Motherboard which features several brand new exclusive features. This new update is further proof of EVGA’s commitment to the enthusiast community, and these new features will also be standard on all future EVGA enthusiast motherboards.
The new stress test allows you to test and stress from the bios to see if an overclock is stable or not. That saves you the time to boot into windows and test there, crash and start over again. You can likely expect the feature to end up in the high-end SKUs motherboards. The test itself would be close to Prime95-like CPU stress loads, the BIOS will display frequency, voltage, and temperature of the CPU.
Key Features of the New EVGA GUI BIOS:
- Built-in CPU Stress Test – Test your CPU overclock with the click of a button from directly in the BIOS! No reboot needed.
- EVGA OC Robot – Automatically test and find a stable overclock for your system.
- Gamer Mode – Set a conservative overclock in seconds.
Clever, it likely won't be long before other manufacturers will do a similar thing in their BIOS. But props where props are due, this is very handy for any CPU tweaker.
