I wouldn't make that general statement about SMBIOS age playing a role in
incorrect data.  More than likely this is a vendor/mainboard BIOS specific
problem.  As best I can tell, all the dmidecode data reported for this 11 year
old Abit BP6 mainboard is correct; matches the user manual data 1:1.  **Note the
BIOS date**

# dmidecode 2.9
SMBIOS 2.2 present.
