I understand that you are inquiring about you being able to use the newer processors on the 22nm architecture.
The Requirements will be on the following web site:
If your motherboard does not meet them, it means that it will not be able to use the 22nm processor.
Thank you very much for your reply @Victor_Intel! It's much appreciated!
The Link that you posted is the instructions diagram that I mention in my first post. I have understood so far the following:
1) All DZ68DB Motherboards are capable of 22nm CPU support.
2) DZ68DBs with AA# 105 or above are 22nm CPU ready just by updating to 0040 Bios and the ME 8.0 Version
3) DZ68DBs with AA# 104 or lower (in my case AA#101) are 22nm CPU capable and another BIOS update is required so that they are 22nm CPU ready( even if BIOS 0040 version is already installed).
I think that I have understood everything correctly! All that I want to know is that I am not mistaken. I ask because I do not have that much experience with CPU upgrading after BIOS update or similar issues.
Thank you very very much in advance!
