    I think the board with the gun on it is retarded, ooh ooh its got a gun shaped heatsink. But does it cool better....no, just makes you look like a 12yr old kid.

    3d uefi is pretty sweet though.

    Looks like everyone is overcompensating for the BIOS days by shoving ghastly interfaces down our throat. Seriously, what is the point of this gimmick? They should fit more data and settings in the same space instead of assaulting our eyes with useless graphics.

    I liked the 990FX-UD5.. so much fun to play with and guess what... classic BIOS interface :)

    I admit mousing ability is nice touch I use it some times, when I only have to change one thing. But when im into the bios im all KB.

    It's as "3D" as the shooter you're playing. Stereoscopic 3D (eg: Avatard) and 3D graphics (eg: Quake 3 Arena) are two entirely different things.

    Great point that people overlook. I also don't understand the negative reaction to a manufacturer trying to distinguish itself from the pack.

    It's just a marketing name, the whole idea is to make the interface more accessible to people that aren't so familiar with it all. Maybe it's the wrong platform to launch it for, but this will trickle down to other models over time.

    I like bios to be as fastest accessible as possible. Nobody is spending time in bios, is just to configure stuff and forget about it. Useless.:ohwell:

    Hopefully, this translates over to their AMD boards as well. I like the look and niche view of it. OF course, it would probably get old after a while, but at least they are thinking outside of the box.

    I really like the uefi bios, i was the first person in my shared house to get a board with it, and all my friends ooh, and aahd over it. It does make thing a bit easier imo.

    Gigabyte just NEED to have the best, don't they?

    First, HybridEFI - useless.

    Second, TouchBIOS - useless.

    Third, 3D EFI..

    ARGH!

    Why make these propeitary pieces of software? Who the heck wants to access their BIOS on a touchscreen? Who has a 3D monitor? Almost no one!!

    JUST MAKE UEFI FOR CRYING OUT LOUD!
