There isn’t anything interesting to speak of in the BIOS. Obviously there are no overclocking options due to the tight thermal restraints in laptops.
The main page of the BIOS shows us some basic information about the system including the installed system drives.
Moving onto the next page, we find a few basic settings to play about with.
On the security page, the only thing we can do is set a Supervisor password.
The ‘Boot’ tab lets us set the boot configuration. As standard, the system is configured to boot from the optical drive as a priority.
The final tab lets us exit the BIOS.
Today we are going to use a combination of synthetic and real world benchmarks to showcase the performance of the XMG P502.
