I need some B660 mobo with FlashBack

Hello, can I update ASUS TUF GAMING B660M-PLUS WiFi D4 using BIOS FlashBack or whatever is called that doesn't need a CPU? I don't have 12th gen CPU, I'll buy i5-13500 because at the moment is on sale at my local store at a cost the same as a 13400 and cheaper than a 12500.
Basically, I want to upgrade my PC to 13th Gen and right now I need a B660 mobo because is cheap, I don't have a big budget for Z690 or Z790 that support BIOS FlashBack and I'm searching for a cheap and good motherboard.
Right now, I'm choosing between these:
ASUS TUF GAMING B660M-PLUS WiFi D4
or
GIGABYTE B660M GAMING X AX DDR4
I've checked the Gigabyte model and it has Q-Flash to update the bios without a CPU.
But I'm an Asus fan and if TUF Gaming B660M-Plus WIFI D4 has FlashBack I'll choose an Asus again 🙂
The problem is that I don't see any info about the FlashBack function.
So, can someone tell me if is it possible to update the bios without a CPU or if maybe the Gigabyte mobo is the only way?
Again - I want an Asus, not Gigabyte!
If there is no FlashBack, can you suggest to me some other cheap B660 Asus mobos that have FlashBack?

Hello CTEoloAH

Looking at the tech specs, the TUF Gaming B660M-Plus WiFi D4 doesn't have the bios flashback feature.

The ROG Strix B660-A Gaming Wifi does have the bios flashback feature, this motherboard supports DDR5 memory.
