Raptor Lake Desktop

Implement open-source firmware for modern mainboards and chipsets

The Raptor Lake Desktop project aims to deliver open-source firmware support for a modern day motherboard (the MSI PRO Z690-A WIFI DDR4/DDR5 workstation/desktop), enabling users to customize and enhance their hardware. Through open-source firmware, users will have the freedom to modify and adapt the software according to their specific requirements. Building on the success of the Alder Lake Desktop initiative, this project focuses on two key goals: adding support for 13th generation Raptor Lake-S CPUs on existing boards and implementing open-source firmware support for the MSI PRO Z790-P WIFI DDR4/DDR5 boards. The project also includes the development of additional firmware features to improve system functionality and security, such as selective Option ROM loading, ESP partition scanning, power state after power fail option, PCIe Resizable BARs, and XMP memory profile selection. Through community involvement and feedback, the project aims to provide a more personalized and flexible computing experience for board owners.
