If you’re an AMD user running relatively modern hardware (e.g., 500/400 Series chipsets), you’re probably aware that your motherboard will support AMD’s recently announced Ryzen 5000 Series processors, which leverage the Zen 3 architecture for substantial IPC gains and other improvements. What may be surprising is that the majority of these boards already seem to be prepped and ready.

ComputerBase has shared a substantial list of BIOSes and motherboards from ASRock, ASUS, BIOSTAR, GIGABYTE, and MSI, all of which have been blessed with the required AGESA version (1.0.8.0 or newer) for running Ryzen 5000 Series processors. MSI appears to be at the forefront of the effort, as it is the only manufacturer offering AGESA 1.1.0.0 – the latest BIOS revision, which AMD recommends for the “best experience.”

What’s really cool is that even budget A520 motherboards are geared up for Ryzen 5000 Series processors. Updates for X470 and B450 should be rolling out early next year (according to AMD, these require a “selective” beta BIOS update).

AMD 500 Series Chipsets

  • Get Ready: AMD 500 Series motherboards require a BIOS with AGESA 1.0.8.0 (or newer) for POST/boot (already available)
  • At Launch: Users should upgrade to a BIOS with AGESA 1.1.0.0 (or newer) for the best experience on November 5

AMD 400 Series Chipsets

  • BIOS updates for AMD Ryzen 5000 Series processors currently in development with motherboard partners
  • Customers should expect first beta releases for AMD 400 Series motherboards starting in January, 2021

    They be doing bios updates on a case by case basis.

  3. I’m in an annoying spot. My main rig is atx with an x470 board. I have a B550i Pro AX, but its ITX, and I havent found an ITX case I like to swap all my parts over. I’ve had about 5 cases, and I’ve either sold them or returned them. :ROFLMAO:
