to have AVX you need to disable all E-Cores as it doesn't play well with them at all and is disabled.

i did disable all the ecores, but avx option still not there.

Anandtech ran into the same problem, where AVX512 was not detected.
But MSI told them the feature is in the new bios

It seems some people are not understanding. This is a cut and paste from the Anandtech review:

"We’ve done some extensive research on what Intel has done in order to ‘disable’ AVX-512. It looks like that in the base firmware that Intel creates, there is an option to enable/disable the unit, as there probably is for a lot of other features. Intel then hands this base firmware to the vendors and they adjust it how they wish. As far as we understand, when the decision to drop AVX-512 from the POR was made, the option to enable/disable AVX-512 was obfuscated in the base firmware. The idea is that the motherboard vendors wouldn’t be able to change the option unless they specifically knew how to – the standard hook to change that option was gone.

However, some motherboard vendors have figured it out. In our discoveries, we have learned that this works on ASUS, GIGABYTE, and ASRock motherboards, however MSI motherboards do not have this option. It’s worth noting that all the motherboard vendors likely designed all of their boards on the premise that AVX-512 and its high current draw needs would be there, so when Intel cut it, it meant perhaps that some boards were over-engineered with a higher cost than needed. I bet a few weren’t happy.

Update: MSI reached out to me and have said they will have this feature in BIOS versions 1.11 and above. Some boards already have the BIOS available, the rest will follow shortly."

MSI is the only major motherboard company that does not have this AVX-512 feature enabled.
For years and years now MSI has been like this when it comes to features and BIOS support. They often seem to lag the other companies. It is a very sad situation.
So MSI, when will you release a bios with AVX-512 feature?

So you can confirm that MSI Alder Lake boards do NOT currently support AVX-512?

For my board MSI PRO Z690-A DDR4 I don't see new BIOS on the website, only from like September 7D25v10. What is the version 1.11 and 1.13 referring to?

EDIT: Also how do I disable E cores?

EDIT: Also how do I disable hyper threading?
