This is really good news, and is certainly a useful tool to have in the Bios:

Although, i am kind of wondering which boards would be getting this feature?
Will X99 boards get this feature too, or is it only for new/upcoming boards?
(I am a X99 owner myself, which is why i posted this in the X99 section)

    I saw this the other day.  Looks like a really nice feature.  I have my doubts we'll see it on X99 even though it would be nice to play around with...

    EVGA X99 Classy ~ EVGA 1080 FTW ~ i7-5930K ~ Corsair H100i
    Samsung 960 EVO ~ 840 Pro ~ 840 Std ~ EVGA 1300W G2 ~ CM HafX

    Looks like only high end mother board SKUs will be supported. That answer is not official. 

    Specs: AMD 1920X Threadripper, Samsung SM961 M.2, 64GB Corsair DDR4 memory (half kit of CMD128GX4M8B2800C14),  ASRock X399 Taichi Motherboard

    I truly hope they give this to us X99 Classified owners.  That would be great and very convenient for us OCs.

    I understand this answer is not official, but i'm hoping that the X99 Classified is still considered a high end SKU (since it's almost 4 years old).

    nice tool to add to BIOS
     
    X99 would be nice, I've got them also
     
    Probably pointed at X299 and newer MB though - my guess

    At the time, it was the high end SKU for MBs.
