Please issue a DL320e Gen8 V2 firmware update for new CPU support

Newest Haswell Refresh Intel CPUs like Pentium G3258 are not supported by current DL320e Gen8 V2 firmware.

Seems what a server's firmware must be updated to include these new chips (Haswell Refresh).

At least current SPS ME 3.0.4.D1 needs to be updated to Intel's latest 3.0.5.80 together with microcode update from 17 to 1A.

 

Is this update planned (any soon)?

Thank you!

Regarding Haswell "refresh", it has long been expected that BIOS for any system would need a BIOS update, so that's not too surprising.... if they would even work at all (LGA 2011 compared to LGA 2011-3 sockets on the Xeon DP models for instance).

It seems like it would really only be possible on the uniprocessor Haswell since the socket is still LGA 1150, so you might just keep your fingers crossed that HP will get it working for those uniproc servers.

Haswell Refresh should be hardware compatible with current 1150 boards.

Many vendors already released HW-R support for their systems...
