GIGABYTE has announced that it has brought its instant 6 GHz technology designed for 13th Gen Intel Core i9-13900K and Core i7-13700K processors to the Z690 platform, allowing owners of these premium Raptor Lake desktop CPUs to gain a performance boost on older motherboards with what sounds like minimal effort.

The new feature can be enabled via new BIOS updates, as explained by the company:

By simply upgrading the latest BIOS of Z690 motherboards and activating the relevant settings, users can optimize their Intel Core i9-13900K and Core i7-13700K processors to 6 GHz for the performance boost on single-core up to 3%. This enables users who stay with the existing Z690 platform can enjoy the performance enhancement of the new CPU as well.

GIGABYTE’s instant 6 GHz technology was initially introduced for its range of Z790 motherboards and works automatically to deliver heightened single-core performance:

GIGABYTE’s Instant 6GHz on the Z790 platform was renowned for unleashing the performance of Intel Core i9-13900K and Core i7-13700K processors for users in an easier way and is now employed on the Z690 platform. By simply upgrading the latest BIOS with Instant 6GHz activated, the system can automatically tweak CPU voltage and Vcore Load Line Calibration of Intel Core i9-13900K and Core i7-13700K processors to detect the most two optimized cores running at 6GHz frequency. This further delivers a 3% performance boost on one single core like the Z790 platform.

The new BIOS updates that include GIGABYTE’s instant 6 GHz technology are available now, according to the manufacturer, and users can upgrade using the company’s Q-Flash or Q-Flash Plus utilities.
