Hi,

Just wondering if the bios update to A12 is recommended or not, if unit is functioning properly.

Appreciate any advice.

I'm curious as well, it's stated on the dell site that the a12 bios has added a GPU switch option in F2
Which I'm using an unlocked a08 for that reason. I might make the update if I know it is stable.

If your system works fine then I don't believe you ever need to update something. But I always update to the latest, but it's not always needed, once it screwed my computer up but it's very rare. I say you should update it, just to have the latest.

Personally, the motto "if it ain't broke, don't fix it" applies.

I would only do a BIOS update if something doesn't work. Read the release notes if you really want to update, and see what was fixed.

I'm assuming that it still doesn't have support for SATA 3......??? I think I'll stick with A08 for now if it doesn't.
