    EFI makes me all warm and fuzzy inside. EFI and a really high FSB is just awesome!

    Very nice, i would love to see EFI soon :)

    Server motherboards and macs have been using it for a long time, mainly cos Linux and OSX have supported EFI for a long time

    Typical windows slowing everyone down - sigh

    I guess i'm failing to see how windows is responsible for EFI to come so late in PC's ? Unless it requires vista to work (somehow) ?

    Wonder if it would have worked with the 9.5x multiplier on. That's just over 5ghz on a core2duo... :)
