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."

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.

MSI GS65 Stealth Thin

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
