Intel has confirmed that the entry-level H410 and B460 motherboards won’t support 11th Gen Intel Core processors. The remaining Intel 400-series motherboards will support these processors when using an updated BIOS.
This information came from Intel itself, on a support page to help people that may not be able to boot the system when using a Z490 or H470 motherboard paired with an upcoming 11th Gen Core processor. On this page, there’s a note stating that “motherboards based on Intel B460 or H410 chipsets are not compatible with upcoming 11th Gen Intel Core processors.”
In the case of Intel Z490 and H470 chipset-based motherboard, a BIOS update will be required to support 11th Gen CPUs.
Intel 11th Gen Core processors are expected to launch next month, right after Intel Z590 motherboards.
KitGuru says: Do you own an H410 or B460 chipset-based motherboard? Were you hoping to upgrade your CPU to one of the upcoming Intel Rocket Lake-S processors?
