Following in the footsteps of ASRock, this weekend was HAS HIS which announced a BIOS update to provide some of its motherboards with full compatibility with the 13th generation of Intel Core processors, better known as raptor lake.
The key word here is “some”, because unlike ASRock, ASUS is limited to initial support for high-end motherboards based on the chipset. Intel Z690. It’s not that it’s something to worry about either, knowing that there’s still plenty of time left before the launch of these processors, so it’s logical to expect that the rest of the models based on the chipsets H670, B660 and H610 receive support in the coming weeks.
You can access the new BIOS from the manufacturer’s website, although of course we recommend that you only update when at least you bought your new CPUyou never know if there might be a problem that will be solved later.
ASUS today announced BIOS support and updates that prepare a line of motherboards for the new wave of Intel processors. ASUS offers convenient BIOS update tools: BIOS Flashback and EZ Flash 3.
BIOS Flashback design allows users to update BIOS without entering BIOS screen, and ASUS EZ Flash 3 program allows users to easily update BIOS version without entering Windows OS . ASUS 600 series motherboards will receive support for these new processors according to the table below.
