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.
