    The primary issue really is that most paid $3000~4000 for this machine. Shouldn't have to run deprecated software to get the most out of it.

    XMP UPDATE

    Umar and Ernie have done testing with the new BIOS and it certainly doesn't have XMP anywhere from what they can see. They're looking into it further.

    Yip, I'm with you. I think the documentation shared has just been updated in readiness for the R2 release. No harm in getting them to check though I suppose.

    There has to be some sort of hardware limitation within this revision or surely this would have been simple enough to implement from the get go?

    Is that not just a screen grab from the leaked YouTube video that was going around. It was apparently a publicity stunt to get the machine high up on benching lists? If its genuine why is the BIOS version being hidden (assume thats what he's hiding).
