Heads up! Intel announced APO will be coming to 12th & 13th gen cpus

Vynra
Level 12

APO is already supported for 14th gen cpu i7+i9 cpus only. during CES 2024 intel announced that when it releases an update to APO it will support 12th and 13th gen (i7 + i9 models) 

Please be on the lookout for

  • a new intel DTT driver (driver that comes out after 12/08/23 version)
  • Next version of APO in near future
  • a new BIOS update to allow older cpu gen to take advantage of DTT

if you have a 12th or 13th gen cpu and download the DTT that is up on motherboard page right now it will do absolutely nothing for you. also enabling DTT now will not do anything. just gotta wait for release. for right now no reason to assume APO will work on i5 models unless they change that

Quote: "Intel also announced a host of new titles that would get APO support during CES 2024. These include Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy, F1 22, Strange Brigade (Vulkan), World War Z, Dirt 5 & World of Warcraft, these are among the list of 14 games. In addition to the 12th and 13th Gen Desktop CPUs, Intel will also be adding its 14th Gen Raptor Lake-HX CPUs to the list of supported chips for APO. A BIOS update will be required to fully enable APO on existing 600 and 700-series motherboards with 12th & 13th Gen CPUs"

Interesting that I already have the BIOS option (advanced tab/thermal configuration/Intel DTT Configuration/Intel DTT = enabled, off by default) and DTT drivers are already installed. Like you say, I'll wait for the new DTT drivers and maybe another BIOS. I haven't tried to enable it and as far as I know I have no supported games anyway, but something for nothing can't be bad, right?
