Supermicro: Istanbul BIOS UpdatesJune 4, 2009
Supermicro has just updated some of their “A+ System” motherboards to accept the AMD “Istanbul” 6-core Opteron processor. As we’ve indicated in a previous post, the Istanbul requires a BIOS that is up to the AGESA 22.214.171.124 standard. We’ve seen the H8DMU+ in AMD’s testing lab and on TechReport’s review of Istanbul so it appears that the “Istanbul” BIOS is pretty well baked.
