It seems like a small feature, but the ROG Pulse feature is really cool for me. I am always nervous that I broke something when changing BIOS settings, would definitely be nice to know everything is still working.
I also like the ASUS Ram Drive, but that isn't a UEFI feature.
The secure erase feature is one that is really selling me. Erasing SSD has gotten easier, but still is a pain to do it correctly . Having that feature in the BIOS is a really great thing. Kudos to whomever thought of that.
The SSD Secure Erase is the feature I'm most interested in testing. Makes it quick and easy to swap in new SSD's and securely wipe the old ones without having to create a USB flash drive with Parted Magic.
This ROG series of the Asus UEFI is perfectly streamlined for both the novice builder or the most advanced. The layout of the initial screen has all of the essential settings and information in plain view and access. Even a novice can overclock from first power on.
The new feature which I'm most excited about is the labeling of the SATA devices. I find that I swap/change/RMA/upgrade SATA (ATA and IDE in the past) devices more than any other type of component over the years. Now I can label it in the UEFI and take the guess work out of both troubleshooting and replacement.
With higher capacity memory being available in today's market having the ROG RAMDisk makes it easier to set and run a RAM disk so that any type of user whether they be a hardcore gamer or a multimedia professional user can take full advantage of their memory's capacity and performance without relying on a 3rd party application.
Ramdisk and SSD secure erase features are really great. No need to get those 3rd party ramdisk softwares anymore! I'm really digging the new BIOS layout as well. Very ROG-esque and definitely sets it apart from the rest. I also like the addition of mPCIe wi-fi card.
I've been a big fan of ASUS ROG boards. Still running ROG Rampage III Formula in my main system and ROG Gene II on my LAN box. So, it'd be nice to get a new ROG board and hop on the upgrade train.
As far as the UEFI BIOS is concerned, I find the addition of the integrated RAMDisk utility to be most compelling, but from a HW standpoint the mSATA-compatible mPCIe interface is an extremely intelligent enhancement offering lots of new configuration options. Good work on the newly-designed OC Panel, as well, Asus!
