GIGABYTE 700/600 series motherboards now support next generation Intel Core

Companies like GIGABYTE are well aware of the importance of leaps generations of technological elements more present in our lives. Thus, every time we find ourselves facing a new generation, or an evolution within the existing one, of processors, graphics cards, memory technologies, etc., they strive to give a quick response to them so that, from day one on the market, users already have the necessary support to enjoy them. And of course, in the vast majority of cases, said support depends on the motherboard.

On many occasions, when these technological evolutions entail substantial changes in components, such as their connection interface, users are inevitably forced to perform a “major” update. For example, with the jump from the eleventh to the twelfth generation of Intel Core, there was the change from the LGA1200 socket to the LGA1700. However, this one remained in the jump from Alder Lake to Raptor Lake, and it will also do it in the refresh of the same which, according to multiple rumors, this year will replace the expected release of Meteor Lake-S.

Now, the fact that the physical connection interface, in this case the socket, is maintained, does not always translate into motherboards designed for one generation being compatible with the next. There may be “physical” constraints, such as increased power supply requirements or some additional element in the motherboard architecture, as well as logical ones, which will depend on whether the manufacturer of the motherboard in question decides to update the BIOS software or not.

There are still a few months to go until, after summer, Intel officially presents the refresh 13th generation for desktop, but it has already transpired that, although current motherboards will be compatible, an update of their BIOS will be necessary. This is interesting, because it points to the possibility that this Raptor Lake update will come with more news than initially planned, although, of course, this is yet to be confirmed, and we will not officially know until September 19, at the inauguration of Intel. Innovation 2023.

Thus, we find ourselves in a case like the one mentioned above, and to which GIGABYTE has decided to respond quickly, for the peace of mind of users who already have a motherboard from this manufacturer, and also for those who are considering purchasing one, with the possibility in the future to update your integrated to meteor lake part 2. So much so that, as announced, GIGABYTE’s new beta BIOS for 700/600 series motherboards now supports Intel Core CPUs due to be released in September.

To this end, GIGABYTE has been working with Intel on the development and validation of the software responsible for managing the system, allowing for such an early first release that it is also already available for users who wish to carry out their own tests with their motherboards families Z790/B760/Z690/B660/H610. To do this, they simply need to update the BIOS with the latest Beta BIOS file using GIGABYTE BIOS, Q-Flash or Q-Flash Plus technology.
