Asus spinoff ASRock has followed its progenitor company in releasing BIOS updates adding support for the upcoming Kaby Lake CPUs. Firmware updates for 21 of ASRock's existing Intel 100-series LGA 1151 motherboards add support for what the company dubs "Next Generation" Intel Core processors.
ASRock's press release conspicuously avoids the terms "Kaby Lake" or "seventh-generation Core," but the BIOS updates doubtless add support for the new CPUs. The products of Intel's "optimization" phase of its 14-nm tri-gate manufacturing technology are expected to hit the desktop market in early 2017.
The firmware updates are not limited to high-end Z170 boards. Entry-level H110, B150, and H170 receive updates as well. The full list of supported motherboards can be found here.
