Motherboard Vendors Start Rolling Out BIOS Firmware for Intel’s 13th Gen Raptor Lake-S CPUs

Intel’s board partners continue to release BIOS firmware updates to support the upcoming 13th Gen Raptor Lake-S processors. MSI is the latest motherboard vendor to roll out the concerned firmware updates for its 600 series board, making them compatible with the next-gen CPUs from Team Blue. The release includes BIOS files for the most popular Z690, B660, and H610 boards:

The remaining boards, including the MEG series, will be getting the BIOS updates in the coming weeks, well ahead of the Raptor Lake launch. Intel’s 13th Gen processors will be a refresh of Alder Lake, albeit with more cores and cache. They will double the efficiency core count to 16, bringing up the overall figure to 24, thereby giving them an edge against AMD’s Ryzen 7000 parts which are set to top out at 16 cores. The Raptor Lake launch is supposed planned for late Q3 or early Q4, a couple of months after the AMD Raphael release. Prices should be similar to Alder Lake.
