One of the real pains in building computers comes at the times where you need to upgrade several components in order to keep everything compatible to the one new component that you actually had the intention to upgrade. This won’t be an issue if you plans are to invest in the upcoming and fifth generation of Intel Core processors and you own a Gigabyte Z97 or H97 based motherboard.
GIGABYTE’s engineers have been busy in their labs and they have tested and verified that the new generation of Intel Core processors all work perfectly on their H97 and Z97 chipset based motherboards and offer an optimal performance.
So users who wish to take advantage of Intel’s new processor generation as soon as possible can rest assured that their GIGABYTE motherboards will support it. You will need to download and install the latest BIOS to make sure that everything runs smoothly and that every function is properly supported, but that is kind of a normal thing and one that you have to do with each new generation of processors.
You can find and download the latest UEFI BIOS files for your 9 Series motherboards directly on GIGABYTE’s own website and be ready for the upcoming launch.
