Intel confirms that B460 and H410 motherboards will not support 11th Gen Rocket Lake processors 

Intel has confirmed that their Z490 and H470 chipset motherboards will support the company's upcoming 11th Generation Rocket Lake processors, provided that their motherboard's BIOS/UEFI is updated to support these CPUs.

In the announcement below, Intel has confirmed that users of B460 and H410 motherboards will not be given the same treatment, revealing that these motherboards will be incompatible with Rocket Lake despite the fact that both chipsets use Intel's LGA1200 socket. Intel has made their B460 and H410 motherboards obsolete with this move, providing their users with no upgrade headroom beyond Intel's 10th generation of Core processors. 

Intel has made their B460 and H410 motherboards obsolete after a single product generation, even though Intel will not be changing their CPU socket or socket layout with 11th Generation Rocket Lake CPUs. This move will undoubtedly anger B460 users, especially those looking forward to Intel's Rocket Lake launch. 

 

    What are you seeing?

Intel Z490 and H470 chipset-based motherboards may not boot with the upcoming 11th Gen Intel® Core desktop processors.

Environment:

The Intel 400 Series Chipset is a scalable chipset designed for motherboards that support the 10th Gen and upcoming 11th Gen Intel Core desktop processors. The motherboard BIOS is a key component to maintaining this broad compatibility while enabling processor innovations on the platform.

How to fix it:

Intel® Z490 and H470 chipset-based motherboards may require a BIOS update to boot the upcoming 11th Gen Intel Core desktop processors. Intel recommends that you update the BIOS on your Intel 400 Series Chipset-based systems for compatibility with the upcoming 11th Gen Intel Core desktop processors.

Note
Motherboards based on Intel® B460 or H410 chipsets are not compatible with upcoming 11th Gen Intel Core processors.
