While most motherboard makers solved the DRM issues on Intel’s Alder Lake CPUs through BIOS, Gigabyte has released a unique tool that lets you do the same without entering the BIOS. Gigabyte calls it the DRM Fix Tool and it will let you enable or disable the E-Cores to make sure that no issues occur when running games with DRM.

Gigabyte Lets You Enable DRM Compatibility Mode on Intel Alder Lake CPUs Through A Nifty Tool, No Need To Enter BIOS

Earlier this month, Intel just released the latest 12th generation processors with the advantages of new architecture and high performance to the market. However, users are aware that the E-cores in processors may trigger the DRM software to incorrectly recognize them as another system. GIGABYTE releases the new GIGABYTE DRM Fix Tool on the 600 series platform in response to this issue. With this Windows-based utility, users can easily switch on and off the E-Cores on the fly to avoid abnormal game operation due to the DRM issue.

GIGABYTE’s DRM Fix Tool requires the latest BIOS version in order to have an impact. Users can easily control the status of the E-cores through the UI of this utility without any complicated installation. GIGABYTE’s DRM Fix Tool provides a much easier solution to the DRM issue compared to other solutions which require adjusted BIOS settings, PS/2 keyboard connection, or even an exclusive button on the chassis and keyboard.
