Intel “Devil’s Canyon” Supported on Some 8-Series Motherboards

When Intel launched their “Devil’s Canyon” processors last week they were exclusive to Intel 9-series motherboards. Well it looks like the chips are now supported on a large number of motherboards based on older 8-series chipsets (Z87, H87, B85, and H81), with a simple BIOS update from the manufacturer.

Intel has posted a list of compatible motherboards for their Devil’s Canyon chips on their website and from the looks of it most popular Z87-based motherboards are on there. This is great for people who spent well over $200 on Z87 motherboards a little over a year ago. Compatible motherboards for the Core i7-4790K can be found here, and for the Core i5-4690K here.
