Default What vid cards have UEFI GOP Support? - 10-30-2012, 02:04 | posts: 197 | Location: PA, USA

I want to use the Ultra Fast Boot feature of Win8, but I do not know which vid cards support UEFI GOP. Without it, one cannot use the Ultra Fast Boot feature.

I currently have a MSI 560TI Twin Frozr III, but it does not support this needed feature.

As far as I can tell, GOP is a UEFI feature, not a graphics card feature.
Unless a graphics card doesnt support standard modes and a version is brought out to be GOP compliant, there is no need for GOP compliance in gfx cards.

One effect of UEFI is replacing legacy BIOS interrupt calls, which depend on 16-bit x86 compatibility, with protocols. The traditional VESA modes used by the BIOS to define a display adapterís supported modes rely on software interrupts, so they had to be replaced. The result is the UEFI Graphics Output Protocol (GOP), which replaces a complex set of modes with a simple video buffer.

...

GOP just defines a buffer for a particular resolution and color depth. This makes it easier to support a new resolution, or have the display scale to a different resolution. There are also common resolutions in use (example: Microsoft Windows requires 1024x768 and 800x600 for GOP in their bootloader, Intel EPOG supports 800x600 in GOP). This simplicity in implementation makes GUI development easier for the BIOS and pre-boot applications, such as the AMI Provisioning environment.

I can say that, unless the graphics card supports it, you cannot use the Ultra Fast Boot feature. The BIOS stops the boot process and says No. It does give you the option to continue anyway - but then you will get a black screen and have to reset your BIOS to default to do anything. I just did it.

Here is what ASRock says in their latest BIOS update:


Note: "Ultra Fast" is only supported by below conditions.
1. OS is Windows 8.
2. Graphics supports UEFI GOP.

Ah I see.

It looks like at least MSI have a compatible hybrid BIOS for the 670 PE card.
But you may need to contact them to get it.
Perhaps they can help for other cards as well.

None of the current GTX 500 series support UEFI GOP. The BIOS isn't large enough for the code. The GTX 600 series does have a UEFI capable BIOS but I'm not aware of any models that currently have this enabled.

Thanks all! Maybe I just need to wait until the next generation of vid cards to obtain it. I am like a kid in a candy store and they are all out of Reece's Peanut Butter Cups.

There is the MSI GTX670 PE, mentioned it earlier, they made a hybrid BIOS for it.
Contact MSI and see if they can produce a hybrid BIOS for other cards if that one isnt what you want.

In my last post, there is a link where it says this:

Solved.

MSI support staff on the msi hq forum will provide a bios that works. It is not on the main website so I hope this helps another person.

What happened was a batch started shipping with Hybrid bios as default on the vid cards, it has since been corrected, and hybrid bios is available on request.

There are still cards in market, that are not being recalled, and if you get one and still have sandybridge, you will need to go to msi hq help website and ask for a bios, or, use a bios for ivy, that will "kinda" work.

EVGA is also looking into this for their 600 series...

From Jacob EVGA Product manager:

There will be an update in the near future that you can apply if you want to use UEFI boot.

It was not added as default since there are many motherboards that do not support UEFI VGA BIOS (especially legacy)

For sure, 100%. I just recently built a new Skylake build for a close friend and that is the GPU he bought. He is running Windows 10 on an SSD and using all of the Ultra/Fast boot options. Power on to desktop in 14 seconds.

Thanks a bunch , it's booted! I've been asking around on a few forums and what not. Nobody replied or didn't know for definite until I just reed your comment on here. Also Earlier I've noticed I have got an unknown device with an exclamation mark next to it in device manager. I've heard it's something to do with the Windows 10 anniversary update. What should I do about this?

Device instance path: ROOT\USBKCXTRLER\0000
Hardware IDs: ven_1934&dev_1205

Should i just delete this?

No problem. Glad to help out. As for that unknown device, I'm not sure exactly what it is but it seems to be USB related. You could try downloading the motherboard drivers from the manufacturers website, extract them to a folder and try to manually install the correct driver. Or, if all of your USB ports seem to work you could disable, delete or just leave the device alone.

Unfortunately there appears to be no USB Drivers listed via the motherboard website available for my operating system but all my USB slots seem to be responding to a flash drive being inserted. I think I'll take your advice and disable it.
