I think going release the motherboards for new comers supporting them. (Probably something like Rev1.1)

BulkZerker, sorry for the downvote, it was unintentional, I read trying to quote you.

I would think the motherboard would boot even if it did not recognize exactly the model of the CPU, given they are all the same just with different core count.

Also there are some motherboards that do not require CPU or RAM to update/recover the BIOS, you just insert an USB drive with the BIOS image and press a button or sequence.

The BIOS should be accessible even without the update for processor specific features and settings. I've had similar situations in the past. For example, a Core 2 Duo system that couldn't run 64-bit Windows until the BIOS was updated. Similarly, many Skylake generation boards need a BIOS update to properly support Kaby Lake CPUs but can run well enough to do the update.
