Intel® Desktop Board DB85FL

I have two motherboards of this model, one is coupled with the Intel Core i5 4570 and the other which was bought recently has been empty cause I could not find any processors that could be placed in this board, most processors which this motherboard supports were discontinued, now I found out Intel has not made a BIOS available to support newer processors, so what is left for me to do? Will Intel make an available BIOS in which will support at least the newer CPU's or will I have to just leave the motherboard stranded until I find a second hand processor?

Intel closed desktop motherboards development, so there will be no BIOS upgrades for newer CPUs.

I know as much and I have known for quite a while as far back as when the new codenamed Devil Canyons were released in May 2014. I have not sent a query before cause I really thought Intel would give a BIOS update, I think is not fair to let users who bought their motherboards stranded like this, a new BIOS in which support newer CPU models would solve most of our problems which may be now or in future.
