Exclamation American Megatrends Logo on start up with EFI bios

When i start up my Asus p8p67 mobo (not pro or deluxe) a "American Megatrends" logo appears on my sceen, but i have EFI. Ive seen on youtube that other people have an Asus logo, why do i have an older bios version logo thing when i start up then? And does this effect my boot speed?

AMI is always there on the startup screen since they are the ones who create the UEFI backbone for ASUS. Meanwhile the ASUS logo is part of the standard splash screen process.

To check on your BIOS version, go into the BIOS, select Advanced mode and under the Main tab you will see the version.

Certain splash screens can be disabled by going into the BIOS and loading the quick boot options.
