Now that you have an idea of what the purpose of your new computer is we can now move on to selecting one of the most important parts to go into a computer, the Central Processing Unit (CPU).
Another great turnout from Team AMI at the "world's largest office party"!
American Megatrends Inc. (AMI) Firmware Utility (AFU) is a versatile firmware update utility. It initiates firmware update requests that are processed by system firmware, therefore, robustness of the firmware update process, to a large degree, is defined by the properties of the underlying firmware. Coupled with a modern system firmware (a.k.a. BIOS), AFU delivers robust firmware update experience. Modern system firmware is a firmware that has up-to-date security improvements and is in compliance with the relevant industry specifications like UEFI and ACPI. While AFU still supports updating legacy BIOSes, AFU does not use the legacy update method for updating modern BIOSes but instead enforces firmware update security employing best practices defined by the UEFI specifications.
AMI is pleased to announce a new module for Aptio V UEFI Firmware that is compatible with NIST SP 800-88 and DoD 5220.22-M "Data Clearing and Sanitization", which outline fundamental standards and procedures for information disposal and media sanitization.
