Yes. I am old... If it weren't for the end of XP, I'd still be running an AthlonXP system. :)

There is a socketed BIOS chip on the Gigabyte AM4 400 series Gaming 7 Motherboard. So will that catch on with other makers and It would be a nice thing to have some extra BIOS chips shipped with motherboards for backup.

"Other niceties for the Gaming 7 include a socketed BIOS chip that can be field-swapped (a move that Gigabyte says is much preferable to RMAing an entire motherboard in the case of BIOS corruption)" (1)


"Gigabyte offers a sneak peek at a future AMD motherboard at CES"
