    Hello,
    im now buying only Gigabyte boards, because of primary gpu PCI-E long slot bios/efi feature is nice for multiboot systems?

    I never saw it in Bios of other manufacture - except one OEM HP z400 machine, but i could be wrong? Does anyone else has this feature in new boards? If yes, what is name of such item in the Bios?

    Im shure you can get it on other gigabyte boards with a BIOS flash.

    That is a neat feature. Might come in handy, and might not.

    Well its just if you also use build-in igpu e.g. for intel quicksync.

    I have it set to multimonitor and primary gpu as pcie so igpu idles and goes to sleep/off if not in use.

    You need a high end Gigabyte or ASUS for this ? I don't think the low end 140 dollar boards have this.

    Sorry but such feature has always every manufator, its only IGP / PCI-E / PCI selection.. Its not the same, Gigabyte allows you select between multiple PCI-E Graphics cards, which is primary..

    Ya, I think most all Gigabyte boards that aren't cheap has this feature and what not.
