Now?
Here’s a fun fact: my MSI X79A-GD65 8D’s BIOS from more than a month ago came with a support for Ivy-Bridge-E and has been used to test one.

I guess that first they add the support secretly, than they announce it.

Maybe it was just poorly documented. Sometimes a company may only make a big announcement when the support is official so this could be them making it official.

They market a BIOS that exists in the website for 5 weeks as "has officially released a new BIOS". Can't see why they didn't do it like Asus a month a head

The bios has been out since early august, 2.30, but looks like someone needs to fix their PR department if it's taken this long to announce it. I'm running this bios now and no issues to report. Debating long and hard if I'm moving to IB-E.
