Any info on the 1901 firmware?

Level 7
1901 is now offered on the Driver & Tools page, but not on the BIOS & FIRMWARE page (still lists 1701 as the latest). No description of changes or release notes. Anyone know of any info on this new firmware version?

Edit: This firmware is for the original Zenith Extreme, not the Alpha.

Edit 2: release notes have been added:

Improve hardware monitoring compatibility with 3rd party applications.
Fixed a boot issue when using a Quadro K6000 GPU.
" Before running the USB BIOS Flashback tool, please rename the BIOS file (ZE.CAP) using BIOSRenamer.''

I can confirm Asus zenith extreme alpha bios has broken memory support. Everyone is advised not to update and report this issue to asus. i don't know what those freaking engineers are doing ... regressing this board with each releqse.

I can confirm this. Tried CL14 and CL16 kits (All G.Skill with known working sticks from previous 8+ pass memcheck tests). 1901 on Alpha has completely regressed on 3 of my Alpha boards.

Same garbage here on Zenith Extreme Alpha with the latest UEFI/BIOS. How do we report it? Is anyone reading these forums?

I too would like to help log a ticket about this if anyone knows how to reach Asus.

No regression here, only issue I have had so far is if I open ASUS TurboV Core v1.02.02 whilst HWINFO is open the motherboard monitoring data will stick.
