How long before a BIOS moves from beta to production?

Some Beta BIOS, have a specific purpose, and will stay Beta.
But that doesn't mean a Beta BIOS is not as good as a production BIOS, maybe that is what people think, but that is not true.
In some cases a Beta BIOS is created, when AMD or Intel decide to make certain changes, of bugfixes.
The resize bar is added later, Intel calls it Clever Access Memory, this function is added later, to some boards.
For example, when the new Vermeer was not intended to be introduced on a platform, but a Beta BIOS includes an Agesa code, that also allows other CPU releases, it will stay a Beta as far as I know.
And while we are at it, updating a BIOS when the system is running fine, is never a good move, golden rule, when it works, don't change it.
Newer is not automatically better, the same as the hunt for the newest agesa code.
Your system, will not suddenly have miracle functions it didn;t have before.
Kind Regards
