MSI is ready for Intel’s next-generation processors. The company has made available a BIOS update for all its Intel 100-series motherboards, which will add support for the upcoming Kaby Lake desktop processors.

As of now, only the mobile parts have debuted, with the new 7th generation processors featuring an improved 14nm photolithography process that makes it possible to have higher clocked speeds while sticking to the same TDP.

The desktop Kaby Lake processors are expected to release sometime in early 2017.

Some of the supported boards are as follow:

  • MSI Z170A XPower Gaming Titanium Edition
  • MSI Z170A MPower Gaming Titanium
  • MSI Z170A Gaming M9 ACK
  • MSI Z170A Gaming M7
