We’ve confirmed that the BIOS files have been removed, along with the support lists for Ryzen 5000 Series CPUs on B450 motherboards. ASRock has not made an official statement as to why this happened, but there are a few theories about it.
One theory is that AMD had ASRock take them down because it hadn’t revealed Precision Boost Overdrive 2 yet, which has since been announced. Another possibility is that there were performance issues, and ASRock needed to make some improvements. Or perhaps it is just pulling back until it can roll out the BIOS to its X470 products too. One way or another, the updates are sure to return.
