EVGA's next-generation BIOS' will include an integrated stress test

EVGA has started to up their BIOS game, revealing that the company plans to rework their BIOS/UEFI interface to offer users new options, features and an easier to use interface. 

One of the key features of these new BIOS files will be an integrated Prime95-life stress test, which can be used to stress test a system without the need to install an OS or use 3rd party stress testing applications. During this stress test CPU temperatures, voltages and frequencies will be monitored, limiting the overclocking process to the BIOS exclusively if the user wishes.  

During these stress test, EVGA's motherboards will be able to output images to the user's display at a high refresh rate, allowing EVGA's monitoring software to be more useful to users. BIO' typically run at a low refresh rate as they usually do not offer time or latency sensitive information. 

Alongside this stress testing feature, EVGA also plans to implement an auto-overclocking mode called OC Robot, which is designed to overclock applicable systems automatically.

EVGA plans to start releasing their "Next Generation BIOS" soon after Computex, beginning with X299 to then move down Intel's other overclockable motherboard platforms. 

You can join the discussion on EVGA's "next generation" BIOS' on the OC3D Forums.

Avoid at all costs. Before introducing a pretty complex Stress test EVGA why don't you oh I don't know make the BIOS usable in the first place.Quote

Maybe they should focus their RnD on fixing the basics before we go plugging 1.5v through the cpu via their new version.Quote

I agree the BIOS is awful even this new one doesn't really look that much of an improvement over the old one.

I'm really starting to think EVGA doesn't care how many motherboards they sell they know that some of the hardcore Overclockers will get them.

So the BIOS is not meant for every day users it's only meant for hardcore overclockers.Quote
