Intel has issued a new statement amid complaints of instability issues regarding its 13th and 14th Gen Core processors, telling customers now that they should opt for the “Intel Default Settings” option in the BIOS rather than “Intel Baseline Profile,” which manufacturers have apparently been recommending, for the best results. Intel recommends using the highest power delivery profile compatible with each individual motherboard design, as noted in the table below.

A look at “Intel Default Settings”:

The word from Intel:

Several motherboard manufacturers have released BIOS profiles labeled ‘Intel Baseline Profile’. However, these BIOS profiles are not the same as the ‘Intel Default Settings’ recommendations that Intel has recently shared with its partners regarding the instability issues reported on 13th and 14th gen K SKU processors.

These ‘Intel Baseline Profile’ BIOS settings appear to be based on power delivery guidance previously provided by Intel to manufacturers describing the various power delivery options for 13th and 14th Generation K SKU processors based on motherboard capabilities.

Intel is not recommending motherboard manufacturers to use ‘baseline’ power delivery settings on boards capable of higher values.

Intel’s recommended ‘Intel Default Settings’ are a combination of thermal and power delivery features along with a selection of possible power delivery profiles based on motherboard capabilities.
