Gigabyte has announced the release of the latest BIOS versions for its Aorus series motherboards based on the Intel B560 chipset. According to the manufacturer, the latest microcode for these boards adds the ability to overclock the RAM and also allows the flagship Intel Core i9-11900K Rocket Lake-S series processor to automatically overclock to 5.1 GHz across all cores.
In addition, it is noted that the latest firmware adds support for manual overclocking of DDR4 RAM up to 5300 MHz. Also, the manufacturer has implemented support for XMP profiles in new BIOS versions for overclocking RAM to 4800 MHz.
Recall that with the new generation of 500-series chipsets, Intel has allowed overclocking RAM on mid-range motherboards with Intel B560 and Intel H570 chipsets. At the same time, these chipsets will still not allow overclocking central processors – only the flagship set of Intel Z590 system logic will have such an opportunity. But even memory overclocking can significantly increase the performance of the entire system, so we can only welcome such innovations from Intel.
The latest BIOS versions for Gigabyte B560 Aorus motherboards are already available for download from the manufacturer’s website. Below is a list of board models for which the manufacturer offers the latest microcode versions:
- Gigabyte B560 Aorus PRO AX – F5a;
- Gigabyte B560I Aorus PRO AX – F4a;
- Gigabyte B560M Aorus ELITE – F4a;
- Gigabyte B560M Aorus PRO – F5a;
