The '''GIGABYTE GA-M57SLI-S4''' seems to exist in 4 versions as of 2007/05.
The '''GIGABYTE GA-M57SLI-S4''' seems to exist in 4 versions as of 2007/05. The latest manufacturer BIOS update does not support all those hw versions, appearently there are certain hardware differences (no "chipset support" according to the 2010-dated flashing tool by Gigabyte).


There is a version with a PLCC socket for the BIOS chip ([http://www.motherboards.org/imageview.html?i=/images/reviews/motherboards/1628_p6_6.jpg socketed BIOS]), but this might be a pre-production board since nobody has so far (2007/03) confirmed the purchase of a GA-M57SLI-S4 board with socketed BIOS. The mainboard photo on the backside of the GA-M57SLI-S4 box shows a ROM socket too.
