Actually, the cpus may have some similar characteristics but they are NOT the same. Sometimes, even same model CPU are not even the same, because they have different core stepping as well. Sometimes these are fixed by a simple bios upgrade where it adds the new cpuid as new cpu support list.
But regarding your case, this board is already EOIS. There wont be able any new bios now.
The last bios that was released was Version 0482, dated 23 Feb 2006
Note: Use of unsupported processors may result in improper operation, damage to the desktop board or processor, or reduced product life.
All the best,
