Gigabyte's dual BIOS chip announcement was made at the Computex trade show
Gigabyte recently announced at Computex that its proprietary Dual BIOS technology will be extended to every GIGABYTE motherboard with immediate effect. Dual BIOS provides a backup BIOS that automatically repairs or replaces the primary BIOS when necessary (when the primary BIOS fails) without any user intervention.
The result is a vastly reduced RMA rate (Return Merchandise Authorization -- when faulty goods are returned to the manufacturer for repair or replacement). First introduced by GIGABYTE in 1999, Dual BIOS has traditionally been reserved for only high-end GIGABYTE motherboards due to the cost of an additional BIOS chip.
"Most motherboard RMA issues are related to the BIOS and in the past Dual BIOS has drastically reduced RMA rates on our high-end products," said Jackson Hsu, Motherboard Product Manager at GIGABYTE TECHNOLOGY Co., Ltd. "By extending Dual BIOS technology to our mainstream and entry level motherboards we are significantly differentiating our products from the competition and providing our customers with a better quality product."
