Is gigabyte bios really that bad?

 Share

After hearing to some recommendations, I decided to consider a gigabyte mobo for my new build with a 9700k. However, searching for info here and there, it was my observation that many users said they had terrible experiences with gigabyte bios and were much happier since they moved to a different brand. So, since I'm considering a gigabyte, I was wondering, is it that bad? Are there real compromises or it's just that it takes more work/time to config it? I really don't mind a one-time work. Once I get the job done I'm good? But are people picking a different brand just so they don't lose 10 or 20 more minutes on the initial config?

My only experience with Gigabyte has been with an FX chip, so my comparison is a little apples to oranges (BIOS vs UEFI for my  current system)
I think both subjectively and objectively, UEFI is better, but the Gigabyte board I had did struggle with translation errors and miscommunication. A number of things I had to look up to find a communal effort to discover exactly what they were. Natively, though, the BIOS did what it needed to. It didn't give me any issue in that regard.
