Earlier this week we watched JJ give us a thorough overview of ASUS' new 8-series motherboard lineup. In today's video, JJ takes us through ASUS' new 8-series UEFI setup and gives us some pointers along the way.

For the past couple of generations, ASUS has introduced continuous improvements to its UEFI setups - the experience with Haswell is no different. Everything from integrated Secure Erase to history/change logs and  quick note features are on the table this generation:

    Fix the fucking windows drivers first, Asus COM service hogs 2GB memory leak after a month, for years.

    Huh? It's consuming about 1.2MB here, with zero CPU and I/O usage.

    Never had the problem on my Rampage II (we're talking a mainboard approaching 5 years old), but yeah, you're right, this needs to be fixed. Hopefully Anand can query JJ about it.

    Wow..... sounds like you're using one of those decades old klanky-key keyboards from the good old days, ehh?

    It's actually pretty silly to think that it should be so difficult to call what amounts to a single ATA command that's been in existence for years.

    Kudos to the Parted Magic guys for making it as simple as it was, but the shift to UEFI support for this is a welcome change.

    Ignore the troll. Everybody knows you can't run Windows for a month.

    Great video, very intuitive, cannot wait until the Overclocking tips video, as my ROG Hero is enroute to my casa right now.

    Way to rip off MaxPC

    Hey, if you use the UEFI shell and type in the "drivers" command does the board simply reset itself?

    That's one bit of behavior that still pisses me off about ASUS's firmware - they're the only board vendor whose environment does this.
