    DZ87KLT-75K BIOS UPDATE for Upcoming 5th Gen CPU Broadwell ? & Windows 10 Driver Support?

    stephenb.b.r

      It's all over the internet that Broadwell will be launching some time in June of this year and it will reportedly launch only two 1150 CPUs all Unlocked namely Core i7-5775C and the Core i5-5675C this are 14nm parts.

       

      Both the i7-5775C and the i5-5675C are quad-core parts, with TDP rated as low as 65W. The i7-5775C offers clock speeds of 3.30 GHz, with 3.70 GHz Turbo Boost, while the i5-5675C offers 3.10 GHz, with 3.60 GHz Turbo Boost. The i7-5775C comes with just 6 MB of L3 cache, while the i5-5675C offers just 4 MB of it. The i7-5775C offers HyperThreading, letting the OS address eight logical CPUs, while the i5-5675C lacks it. Both chips feature Intel's Iris Pro 6200 series integrated graphics, and feature dual-channel DDR3L-1600 memory support.

       

      This will be good for the DZ87KLT-75K as its the last Intel Desktop Board plus the above mentioned CPUs will be the last of 1150 socket, If Intel could spare some time and update the DZ87KLT-75K's BIOS to at list support the Broadwell 14nm. Intel refused to support Haswell Refresh as far as we've seen. Maybe Since broadwell seems to make much of an upgrade sense in terms of power consumption and optical shrink it would be nice to have support for the upcoming two chips.

       

      Windows 10

      I hope we will not be left behind support wise in regards to Windows 10 drivers for DZ87KLT-75K when the operating system launches its the next big thing coming out and supports DX12, Intel please consider.
