I don't remember the exact details -- you could probably google to find out more -- but there's a new type of specifically UEFI-compatible VGA BIOS that allows it to start up much faster, thus hastening the entire boot process. A lot of the newer GPUs are "UEFI Ready"; that's what this indicates. I can't remember what changed, but in any case, it's a VGABIOS UEFI optimization thing.
i7-4790K (Seidon 120XL), 2x8GB DDR3-1866 CL9 1T, GA-Z97MX-GAMING 5, SAPPHIRE TRI-X OC 290X, 128GB Vertex 4 / 4x60GB Vertex Plus R2, SST-DA1000 (PSU), 2x VS229H-P, 1x VG248QE, 1x MIMO 720F, Corsair Vengeance K90+M95
