ASRock’s Sonic rushes to support next-gen Intel CPUs

Motherboard makers have started rolling out updates for the next-gen Intel CPU series.

ASRock is following Gigabyte by introducing new firmware supporting next-generation Intel CPUs. One of the first motherboards to receive BIOS support for whatever Intel has in store next, is the B760M motherboard from the Phantom Gaming Sonic series.

The 5.04 update unlocks support for yet unannounced CPUs, adds optimizations for CPUs and memory and unlocks support for non-binary 24GB/48GB DDR5 memory.

Although Intel did not confirm its plans for client desktop platform, it is not a secret that the Raptor Lake series is to receive a refresh. It is said that both the desktop (Core-S) and enthusiast mobile (Core-HX) series are to be part of the said update.

This refresh is said not be part of the Intel client Core series rebranding, which should for now be exclusive to Meteor Lake, launching in the second half of this year. This means that Raptor Lake Refresh should fall into 14th Gen Core series naming and motherboards like the B760M PG Sonic will support three generations of Intel Core series with the same socket.
