HWiNFO with support for Alder Lake motherboards

The popular monitoring and diagnostic tool already with preliminary support for unreleased ASUS motherboards.

Intel 600 series motherboards are to debut in the third or fourth quarter featuring the brand new LGA1700 socket. Those motherboards will support the 12th Gen Core Alder Lake-S series that require this new socket. Those motherboards will also support DDR4 and DDR5 memory and PCIe Gen5.

The support for ASUS Z690 motherboards is listed in HWiNFO’s upcoming changes, which means they will be deployed with an upcoming BETA version of the software. The same version will support Raptor Lake-S, which is considered Alder Lake-S successor/refresh. Both series are to be supported by the ASUS Z690 motherboard.

This is also the first time we hear about the ROG Maximus XIV series. Based on the information that we received, ASUS is planning to equip all flagship/high-end Z690 motherboards with DDR5 memory support, while keeping DDR4 support on lower-end series. At this moment we don’t know if any motherboard is to support both memory standards at the same time.

Intel confirmed that the Alder Lake-S series will be released by the end of this year. Previous rumors suggested that we might see an announcement already in the third quarter with availability expected in the fourth.
