Gigabyte Releases Tool To Fix Intel CPU DRM Issues

Gigabyte has released a tool to fix performance and boot issues with older games. The twelfth generation Intel processors do not handle various DRM applications well.

Many DRM applications can’t handle the E-cores that contain the new Alder Lake processors, which causes games to fail to start or performance issues. Gigabyte’s tool disables these cores so that the DRM checks can only be performed on the performance cores.

The Windows tool only works on motherboards with the 600 chipset and the latest bios and can be downloaded immediately from the Gigabyte website. The table below shows which motherboards are involved and which bios version you need at least.
