Why do TWO BIOS dates exist, even when the BIOS is never updated? Some programs show the newer date and some show the older date of the SAME BIOS!

I even flash-updated my BIOS and even though the date and version number changed - as shown during POST, the old date is STILL shown exactly the same in some programs such as Windows System Information!

Yes they exist :
1 date is the Bios Core date - the date the basic AMI or Award Bios your main bios is built of .
The other date is the release date of your main Bios .
