MSI Announces Kaby Lake BIOS Updates For LGA1151 Motherboards

Intel’s new Kaby Lake architecture is predicted to release relatively soon and should provide a minor bump in performance compared to Skylake. Of course, upgrading a CPU sometimes requires a different socket which forces the consumer to invest in a new motherboard. Thankfully, there are occasions when this doesn’t occur which makes the upgrade path less hassle. Ahead of Kaby Lake’s release, MSI has unveiled BIOS updates and posted them on the specific product pages to make existing LGA1151 products compatible with upcoming processors. As you can see, this includes popular models like the Z170A Gaming M5, Z170A Gaming Pro Carbon and much more. Additionally, it seems the Z170, B150 and H110 chipsets will support the new architecture.

This is fantastic news for consumers and releasing the BIOS early means you can apply the update and slot in a Kaby Lake processor without worrying about stability or compatibility issues. I’m fairly certain MSI is the first vendor thus far to release the BIOS versions with Kaby Lake support and this is to be commended. Hopefully, Intel’s new platform doesn’t encounter any problems and provides enough of a reason for some enthusiasts to upgrade their hardware.

Are you looking forward to Kaby Lake or holding off for Zen?
