MSI announces support for Broadwell on its Z97 and H97 boards

On the PC front this year’s Computex 2015 was mostly about Intel’s upcoming Skylake processors and the new LGA 1151 platform, which already has its first motherboards. Yet, there’s one more chip that will likely sink into oblivion soon – we are talking about Broadwell, which brings 14 nm technology to the LGA 1150 socket. What does it take to put one such chip into a LGA 1150 board in case you do not want to upgrade?

In case of MSI’s Z97 and H97 boards – nothing! MSI has announced that all the Z97 and H97 boards made by the company fully support Intel’s latest desktop Broadwell processors. All it takes to put the new 14 nm die shrink in these boards is a BIOS update, if needed, and you are good to go.

Now the only requirement that remains is to own a MSI Z97 or H97 board. We wish you luck in this task and if you happen to own a Z97 or H97 board of a different brand check with your motherboard manufacturer for Broadwell support.
