There are no performance differences between the "Touch BIOS" and the traditional BIOS. It's just an easier way of navigating through the UI by having the option of using a keyboard in conjunction with a mouse.

How is the user experience with the touch BIOS?

I'm assuming it's similar to the experience you would get from a UEFI supported BIOS. Prettier interface with the ability of using both the mouse and keyboard to change motherboard settings.

Touch BIOS isn't a BIOS Revision, it's simply the name of Gigabyte's BIOS user interface.
