Z690 Maximus Hero bios update?

Wanted to know if there's another bios to be released anytime soon? I have the latest version 2103.

Ive seen the latest bios from gigabyte aorus master, has an update, "Improve DDR5 5600 32G".

I currently have 1kit 2x32gb 5600mhz running on my MB without issues. I have 2 kits as I needed 128gb memory. Do you think that if we have a bios update similar to the Aorus master that I could run both kits?

I believe so. If you look here:

https://rog.asus.com/forum/showthread.php?131027-RaptorLake-Resources

and click on Z690 Hero, you will find the latest release candidate BIOS placed there by Shamino. It was 2201RC, but I noticed earlier today that 2203RC is now there, So it is being worked on. Not sure when it will be officially released, or even if it fix your 128Gb of RAM question. But yes, there will be another version - it's coming 🙂

OK, just remember it's not officially released yet so it might have problems. If you do want to try it anyway, please report back.
