Greetings from Stehekin, WA. I just updated my Z790 Dark to the 1.13 BIOS version. What came too mind was if one can set a better or sharper BIOS resolution. Probably not in the BIOS itself but through ones GPU? My present BIOS resolution appears to be around 640x480 and like the 'Boot Logo Screen' is very grainy. Old fashion looking actually! Would be nice to see a cleaner and more refined BIOS image. Thoughts?

    I can think of at least 2 reasons the design is as it is:
    1) Higher res images require more memory to be stored, which take away from code that could have been stored instead.
    2) The BIOS screen res is the currently guaranteed most common to be supported by monitors and TVs.
    In order to support native res BIOS rendering the BIOS would need a lot of code to create a display driver capable of querying the active display capabilities, choose best resolution, calculate UI element scaling and offsets, resolution dependent font rendering calculations, etc..

    I have noticed this with my Z790 and Z690 Dark boards, as well as some ASUS boards.
    That completely randomly I will have a very sharp and detailed boot image, but let's say 90% of the time, the image is more stretched out and fuzzy or less sharp in appearance.
    This can happen, again, randomly from turning off display power and back on before booting, just a normal reboot or a dead startup. 
    I will say that when I do see the sharp boot up KINGPIN logo, it's so satisfying.
    Also, I have this across different monitors, different computers, different GPUs. 
    She's an odd one.
