Hi,

I am going to buy the A88M-G/3.1 motherboard  along with the  A10 7860k processor.
Is it possible to update the BIOS to P1.30 which supports the A10 7860k without the usage of an older processor?
Or,i could just update it through Instant Flash without the need of an older processor?

Thanks in advance.

You normally cannot update the UEFI/BIOS without a compatible processor. The board will not function without a CPU.

There are a very few rare exceptions to this where a processor will work in the board but cannot be over clocked without a certain UEFI version, but not in the case of this board and processor.

But given the date of the 1.30 UEFI, 1/20/2016, and that there are no other earlier versions listed, you could get a board that has the 1.30 version UEFI in it from the factory.

The UEFI version number that is in the board from the factory will be on a sticker on the UEFI chip. If you can inspect the board when you buy it, you can check that.

I'm a bit surprised your CPU even needs a new UEFI version. It is not that much different than the other A10 processors.
