H81 chipset will support Intel 5th Generation processor?

"Intel® H81 Express chipset for the latest Intel processors
H81-Gamer's Intel® H81 Express is a single-chipset design that supports Intel LGA1150 4th, New 4th & 5th generation Core™ i7/i5/i3/Pentium®/Celeron® processors. It provides improved performance by using serial point-to-point links, enabling increased bandwidth and stability. H81 Express natively supports up to two USB 3.0 ports for up to ten times (10X) faster transfer rates than USB 2.0, and also supports iGPU functions — so you enjoy the latest Intel integrated-graphics performance."

  1. Best answer
    No matter what generation you call it, the CPU support list for that board shows which processors are supported and which BIOS version (or later) is required: http://www.asus.com/Motherboards/H81GAMER/HelpDesk_CPU/
  2. but since intel 5th generation for desktop is still not released yet there is noway it will be there on the list. however there is a a very high chance that this mother board(h81 chipset) will support the 5th generation processor.
  3. OK. I thought maybe you were counting the Haswell Refresh as the "5th" gen. To the best of my knowledge, the Z97 boards are the only ones "assumed" to support the next gen. But if you found that disclaimer on an Intel site, I would have to think the newer non-Z97 boards might be included now.

    here is what I have found on Asus website about the H81 Chipset

  5. Asus must be ahead of the game. Was there a date on that release?
    I haven't seen that anywhere else. Last I heard was just the Z97 (and H97) chipsets. This was from recently: http://www.tomshardware.com/news/asus-intel-motherboard-broadwell-5th,28715.html
    Last I heard, my Z87 wasn't even supporting Broadwell. And I haven't heard it being a simple BIOS fix either.
  6. maybe it is just marketing for the motherboard but they generalize it by adding "H81-Gamer's Intel® H81 Express is a single-chipset design that supports Intel LGA1150 4th, New 4th & 5th generation Core™ i7/i5/i3/Pentium®/Celeron® processors. " donot know the date of this motherboard was released but it is design look pretty much like H97 gamer design which indicates it IS recent release and maybe Asus has that information from intel itself
  7. There will only be 2x 5th generation Broadwell cpus, the i7-5775C and the i5-5675C. Because of the delays in the 14nm tech, that's all that's slated for the LGA1150, and the full attention of Intel is currently on Skylake-S, which will be seeing production in June/July and retail release in October '15 with Skylake-K proported for release @6months later.

    The 2x Broadwell cpus will be unlocked cpus, same as the K cpus with stock clocks of 3.3 and 3.1 GHz. Personally I have no idea what these downgraded clocks will perform like compared to the 4.0/3.5 of the 4th Gen K's, but I can't see it following the 5%-10% performance increase that's accepted since sandy bridge.

    Whether the H81 will be Broadwell compatible will probably be up to the partners, as they are supplying the bios updates, but I can't see it being worth it to pay the premium price for a 5th gen unlocked cpu on a H81 board at those stock clocks.

    Currently I am running intel G3258 @ 4ghz @voltage =1.152v and temperature never exceed 70 degree with stock cooler I am using Asus H81M-V3 (bios 2003) Motherboard the motherboard comes with two heat sinks which makes is very well to oc . I havnt tried to go beyond 4ghz but I will soon
