FUD Zilla claims motherboards with Intel's P67 and H67 chipsets will support the 22nm Ivy Bridge processors after a BIOS update:
Still there is a hope, as of April all boards powered with H67 and P67 will be bug free and with a BIOS update, they will be able to support Ivy Bridge 22nm processors. So once you get a functional bug free P67 or H67, you can expect to be able to plug Ivy into it and after new BIOS flash, they should just work.
This is what Intel told its various partners and this is the plan for now, but this bug can change a lot of minds and can affect just about any decision.
Intel also told to its special few that Ivy Bridge on Sugar Bay (6 series ) based platforms will require firmware and BIOS update and it also tells them that Q65, Q67 and B65 cheaper chipsets, won't support Ivy Bridge.

Re: Intel P67 and H67 to be compatible with Ivy Bridge? by Anonymous on Saturday, February 05 2011 @ 02:04:46 CET
The question of the year will be is Ivy Bridge notebook chips going to be compatible with Sandy bridge notebooks? It would be an unusual show of good grace given the snafu surrounding the chipset flaws. Intel has hinted before that they'd like to see more upgradeability in notebooks. Is this finally the fruits of that promise?
