Fujitsu Hardware updated for Haswell Refresh
The new CPU models have got a higher clock frequency and a faster turbo mode compared to the current CPUs. All new processors will run with the same LGA 1150 socket like their forerunners.
The only thing you need to use the new generation of the Haswell refresh processors is the latest BIOS version which will be released before the official start date of the processors.
Without the suitable BIOS version the system will not boot with a new Haswell refresh processor. If you have upgraded a motherboard once a downgrade will not be possible. All now shipped mainboards are already equipped with our latest BIOS versions.
