Asus rolls out UEFI BIOS upgrades with support for Intel Optane memory

If you own a new Asus 200-series motherboard, you can now download a new UEFI BIOS upgrade that adds support for Intel’s next-gen Optane memory technology. The BIOS updates for compatible models are immediately available worldwide.

In case you haven’t performed a BIOS upgrade on an Asus motherboard yet, you should know that the latest BIOS update can be installed in two ways. The first involves the company’s USB BIOS Flashback feature. If you choose this method, you will be able to perform the upgrade even when your motherboard doesn’t have a CPU or DRAM modules installed. All you need is the motherboard to be connected to a power supply. You will need to plug in your USB drive with the latest BIOS file and press the USB BIOS Flashback or Reset button to upgrade.

The second method involves downloading the EZ Flash 3 tool. After getting it installed, the latest BIOS upgrade for your board will be automatically downloaded and installed in a few steps. Once the update is installed, the Intel Optane memory configuration details will be permanently retained by the UEFI BIOS, which means you won’t have to re-enter settings ever again.
