ASUS has released a new BIOS update for its ROG Strix X570-E Gaming motherboard. While the company didn’t provide any specifics on Version 1409, @KOMACHI_ENSAKA discovered that it includes support for both Summit Ridge and Raven 2 processors. This means that the board is now officially compatible with all three generations of Ryzen CPUs.

1.Add Support for Summit Ridge & Raven 2 CPU.
You’re not going find a lot of enthusiasts who are crazy enough to pair a $300 motherboard with a 2017-era processor, but ASUS’s BIOS update does extol the beauty of backward compatibility and flexibility granted by AMD’s Socket AM4 platform.
The extensive support is made possible in large part thanks to the ROG Strix X570-E’s 32 MB BIOS chip. Hopefully, ASUS can squeeze Ryzen 4000 in there without eliminating this added compatibility with older processors.
