MSI’s Z68 and H61 Motherboards Will Support Intel 22nm CPUs

It’s nearly impossible to keep up with the latest and greatest tech without updating something every few months, but MSI is throwing us a bone by making sure its Z68 and H61 series motherboards will support Intel’s next-generation 22nm chips via a simple BIOS update.



Users just need to use MSI’s LiveUpdate tool to get the update. The complete list of compatible motherboards is listed below, although it appears for the time being that just three have the BIOS update available today, and all three are H61 boards.



Note that these boards support PCI-E 3.0 as well, so users can build a nice future-facing rig around a motherboard that, while relatively new, isn’t necessarily up-to-the-second new.

That's pretty awesome to know.

If MSI can do this, so can the others. This is cool and keeps the costs of an upgrade down a little.

Hopefully Gigabyte is gonna follow suit so that Z68 bored I won will be compatible!

This is good. Even though I haven't bought a Z68/H61 board yet, the people who do will appreciate the fact that they won't have to buy a new board when the 22nm CPU's come. I'm going to like the fact that the boards being released will have the latest BIOS upgrade in them; I mean I wouldn't want to open a box and discover that the board isn't 22nm, the fact they're coming out with these upgrades is just nice.
