This memory capacity upgrade applies to Intel 700 and 600 series DDR5 motherboards, and gamers or enthusiasts who want to leverage these improvements must update to the dedicated BIOS.

While not every model’s BIOS update has been rolled out in the initial batch, MSI has stated that the unreleased ones will be available sometime in late February and March. Here’s a list of the released BIOS updates:
