9th gen support out of the box?
« on: 20-July-19, 06:55:01 »

I'm looking to buy a Z370-A PRO and would like to know if I'll have to update the BIOS manually or if it will come out of the box ready for 9th gen intel chips.
Also, does this motherboard have flashback+? Is there a way to update the BIOS without a CPU?

1/ The mobo must have been manufactured after the availability of the bios version adding support to the Intel 9th gen CPUs: V2.90 who is available since 2019-04-02. See >>Here<<, last column for the minimal bios required version with each CPU model.
2/ Unfortunately, this mobo has not Flashback+ so an older CPU is required to update the bios if it is not already at V2.90 or upper.
Have a good day,

It's generally best to assume it won't support it out of the box. If you're looking to use a 9th gen CPU, I would stick to buying a Z390 board, since it supports it right out of the box.
