The Dual Bios was first introduced by the
company in 1999. While it was traditionally reserved only for high-end Gigabyte
motherboards, it has now been extended to the company’s complete motherboard
portfolio.office chairs

No, they won't release any newer processors for LGA775.

It's assumed that once a socket switch happens, no new processors will be made for the older socket (LGA775 being the older socket). One of the few exceptions will be Core i5 which will be designed for mainstream use rather than high-end.

Actually Core i5 will have it's own NEW(again!) socket, I think it was Socket 1156. :(

Ah darn it, too late for an RMA... On the bright side, it didn't cost me much as I've salvaged everything from my old setup (except for ram/mobo). I just hope it'll last me 2 yrs max with a midrange videocard upgrade yearly before obsoleteness sets in. Many thanks though...

Take an OS, and edit out all the efficiency, and what you have left is a post-XP Microsoft operating system :)

I'll never buy another brand of motherboard again, my P35-DS3L is absolutely perfect, and when its time for it to go, im getting one of these babys. I never even consider a BIOS flash 'cause im too worried ill screw up my motherboard, this will let me do whatever i want!

 i wonder if you can upgrade your backup bios...       -Denis

Iv'e bought a GB mobo recently which brings me to my off topic question... Does anyone know if QX9775 and Q9650 would be the last
highest-end part on socket 775 or will Intel still release a few more higher end CPUs late 09 or even early 2010 before finally deserting socket 775
altogether? Yep, I know you'd say the answer is effin obvious
with Intel's current i7 on the market for months but MPC hasn't mention anything about the issue (or coz im living on a rock and didn't read past roadmap articles on MaxPC/ other web) thanks to whoever.

I'd like to see this become an industry standard.  Tweak and modify all you want and you've still got a back up bios. Excellent feature!

Are there other motherboard manufacturers doing redundant BIOS like Gigabyte is?

Asus offers a dual BIOS, but they only use them on their higher end boards.

Good idea.
