ASUS cooked up an interesting new feature for its ROG Z590 series motherboards. The manufacturer has integrated the MemTest86 memory stress test into the UEFI of these motherboards. This means memory overclockers will no longer need to use USB sticks or boot into the OS to run MemTest86 -- it will be available in the UEFI environment. Furthermore, ASUS will store memory reports in the BIOS archives for reference.
