Nvidia and Partners Release New System BIOS for the nForce 680i

Santa Clara, Calif. - Nvidia and its partners released a new system BIOS for the Nvidia nForce 680i SLI "Designed by Nvidia" motherboards. These are the motherboards designed by Nvidia and sold by EVGA, BFG, Biostar, and ECS.
This BIOS update eliminates a bug related to the operation of SATA hard diskdrives experienced by some customers. The bug is specific to these "Designed by Nvidia" motherboards, and is not present on any other Nvidia nForce 680i SLI motherboard, nor is it present in our MCPs (chipsets).
Customers can get the latest BIOS from EVGA (http://evga.com/support/680i/), BFG (http://www.bfgtech.com/nForce680i_motherboard.html), ECS, and Biostar.
To simplify the BIOS update process for customers, Nvidia has also developed a special Windows BIOS update tool. This tool instructs customers on what course of action to take and will also be distributed by EVGA, BFG, Biostar, and ECS through their Web sites.
