Intel APO Now Available for 12th and 13th Gen CPUs

It looks like the latest APO release now includes the Advanced Mode which enables this performance enhancing feature for 12th and 13th gen processors. It is not entirely clear which CPU models this includes. Historically, official full support has only included 14th gen i7 and i9.

You need to have the DTT driver installed and the corresponding option enabled in BIOS. Which on ASUS motherboards is usually at:

Advanced > Thermal Configuration > Intel(R) Dynamic Tuning Technology Configuration

The latest driver can be found in the following link. At time of writing it appears that only 13th gen is working. Hopefully 12th gen will be added in a future driver release.

I've not tried yet. Sadly, none of the games listed are ones I am playing at the moment.

I would have replied to the existing post announcing this but it has been locked for no good reason. 🙄

I have i9-13900KF on Asus Z690-A bios 3302. Intel DTT enabled in bios and latest driver Intel DTT 9.0.11401.39039 installed. Intel APO (just updated) says "Failed to connect". I think for 13° gen. we need an Intel DTT driver update. What do u think?

Not sure to be honest, I haven't tried it, but the latest DTT drivers will be available from MoKiChU in this forum. 

The latest are: 9.0.11406.42226

From here: https://rog-forum.asus.com/t5/downloads-for-motherboards/drivers-intel-dtt-gna-5xx-6xx-7xx/td-p/9058...

I'm just installing them now, didn't realise that an update was available...

the drivers from mokichu still do not allow 12th + 13th gen to work with APO. i get an error message saying that it needs to be updated.

Yeah, it is looking like Intel messed up. Released the new app to the Windows Store but haven't released the matching driver to manufacturers yet. 

I'm honestly curious if Intel messed up or these motherboard makers are too lazy to provide us with or update the driver support pages. Either way, it's pretty pathetic it takes them this long to link a driver.

Intel, together with the presentation of the i9-14900KS CPU, announced compatibility of Intel APO with 12th and 13th generation CPUs in advanced mode, only with Windows 11, but without guaranteeing the increase in performance.  A recent update was also released in the Microsoft store for Intel APO.

With my Asus Z690-A 3302 and i9-13900KF, also with Intel DTT driver 9.0.11406.42226 APO continue with "Failed to connect"

I am not sure, but at this point, the problem seems Intel APO that in description continue report only for 14th generation. 

Tried this earlier with no success, but just updated to latest BIOS 3401 and now it works. I don't have any supported games, so can't test it yet.
