No, not really. Why would it? We have been overclocking with bus for decades.

Don't update the BIOS then.

Anyway, I see this as a move by Intel so their non-K models do not cannibalize the sales of their higher profit margin K models. Not consumer friendly but it makes business sense.

One might wonder, "this is too good to be true, what's the catch?" Well, if you had to ask, there are two almost unnoticeable limitations. The first one is the onboard Intel® graphics will be disabled while SKY OC is applied, meaning that users are required to install a graphics card. The second limitation is that CPU Turbo Ratio and C-State will also be disabled.

While ASRock SKY OC breathes life into Intel® non K series CPUs, currently it is still exclusive to motherboards with Intel's Z170 chipset. But have faith in ASRock's skillful engineers, sooner or later more Christmas gifts from ASRock are going to be delivered.

List of BIOS versions that support SKY OC:

Model BIOS Model BIOS
Z170 OC Formula L1.92 Z170M Pro4 L2.23
Z170 Extreme7+ L2.16 Z170M Pro4S L2.23
Z170 Extreme6+ L1.82 Z170M-ITX/ac L1.83
Z170 Extreme6 L1.82 Z170A-X1/3.1 L1.31
Z170 Extreme4+ L2.01 Z170 Professional Gaming i7 L1.14
Z170 Extreme4 L2.43 Z170 Gaming K6+ L1.92
Z170 Extreme3 L1.61 Z170 Gaming K6 L1.92
Z170M Extreme4 L1.34 Z170 Gaming K4 L2.23
Z170 Pro4 L2.83 Z170 Gaming K4/D3 L1.51
Z170 Pro4/D3 L1.74 Z170 Gaming-ITX/ac L1.53
Z170 Pro4S L2.73

Yes, ASRock, it was too good to be true.



Good find. Rep+

All that advertising, those graphs, etc, all swept under the rug.

Squeezed from both sides. Relying on DX12 to avoid Intel, avoiding DX12 because of Windows 10.

DX12 just reduces draw-call overhead. You still have the game engine itself that benefits from a powerful CPU. Lots of AI, Physics and complicated code requires horsepower.

Meh...

I've got my EVGA Board with the overclocking bios... Nothing they can do to me now :-D
