Bios chips aren't really small for their purpose until your start cramming in giant dragon bitmaps and graphical motherboard overlays, which is really beyond what a BIOS is really intended to do (boot the PC and provide control of low level options that are rarely changed). But somewhere along the line bios bling became a thing people wanted I guess. I recall a lot of people complaining that Biostar BIOSes are "bad". I have a z77 biostar board and it the craziest amount of bios options of any board I've ever owned. But its just the plain old blue screen with no mouse support that I was using in the late 90s when it comes to UI design.
