Some more info on the UEFI from MSI.

MSI on UEFI

MSI's UEFI BIOS

A BOIS (well actually a UEFI) with a GUI!

The Asus UEFI utility has been by previewed by a Swiss tech site and the utility looks, in my opinion...... awesome!

The downside is that the actual video, not the report (thanks to Google Translate) is in Swedish. So if there are any Swedes on this forum, I would love to know whats in the vid.

Same, Can't wait to look at all these new (Sandy Bridge) UEFI motherboards that are going to be released in a few months.

Will UEFI definitely require a new motherboard or could an existing one be upgraded?

Having read through the whole thread... I sorta see madtownidiot's point. If for whatever reason (hardware failure, malware, PEBKAC...) the UEFI gets corrupted, I really hope there's a fallback somewhere kinda like the BIOS now so you won't be totally screwed. You'd just stick a bootable disc/usb and initiate repairs like we already do for hdds with problems. Or maybe have the ability to revert any UEFI configuration changes to the last known good one.
