    They useually good at Bios releases, but once the mobo gets a little older, they greatly lack support.

    ASUS is generally pretty good with updates. They have a AM2 board that supports the Phenom II 955.

    Biostar on the other hand... I have a AM3 880G board that doesn't support AM3+ processors

    I feel left out as far as no Piledriver support for this MB. Why does the 760g get a BIOS update to support the FX chips and not 880g.

    Biostar 880g has a BIOS update - but not ASUS - come on. Why did you pay more for the ASUS name if they don't update BIOS's?

    I've searched for Beta BIOS's with no luck either.

    As far as I can tell that board doesn't even support Bulldozer CPUs, so forget about Piledriver. I don't believe the M4A88T-Evo was ever released with an AM3+ socket, which is why it never received an update to support AM3+ CPUs. ASUS has released BIOSes that support Piledriver/Bulldozer for their other 880G motherboards that did have AM3+ sockets like the M5A88-V EVO.
