Its getting to be time to replace my current gaming desktop and I typically keep them for 5 years or so before putting it on server duty. One annoying thing that happens every time is after a year or so the manufacture never releases any updates. Now I dont care if they keep up with the chipset drivers and such I can go to the Intel/AMD for that. What is more of a problem is the BIOS, IME and other things only the motherboard manufacture can update that I want longer support on. Im not talking about warranty but security issues and future hardware support I want patched in. I have had ASUS, Gigabyte and MSI over the years and all seem to stop updating once the product isnt being sold anymore. I want to purchase my next board from what ever manufacture provides updates the longest after its stopped being current. Anyone have any incite into this?
