I have an Acer Aspire XC-605G, which the motherboard is a MS-7869 VER:1.0. If I update the BIOS to P11.B4, would it support the Broadwell line of CPUs? The chipset supports it, but I am not sure if this system will.
The socket supports it but the chipset doesn't. Xc-605g has H81 series 8 Lynx point. You need to have series 9 Wildcat point in order to run broadwell.
Broadwell isn't compatible with your computer.
