I did some more searching and picked the motherboard I want. As for
technologies from several different makers
I didn't have technologies from any other makers as I looked at Gigabyte's website and got them all from there.
The Duel BIOS was just for peace of mind while doing a BIOS update as a power failure *which not your fault* could happen and screw it up.
And if you read it properly, I said not required
but would like to have, so I didn't say I needed them.
And as for the standard features, I was just making sure.
