ASRock is the first manufacturer to update an older X370 motherboard to support AMD’s latest generation of desktop processors, the Ryzen 5000 Series.

As spotted by KOMACHI_ENSAKA, ASRock has released a BIOS update for its X370 Pro 4 motherboard with an updated AGESA that includes support for both Renoir and Vermeer CPUs. This was partially accomplished by removing support for Bristol Ridge, chips that were originally released in 2016.

The latest BIOS update for ASRock’s X370 Pro4 motherboard can be found here on the manufacturer’s support site. Pre-owned versions of the motherboard are going for around $100 to $150.

  • ASRock Super Alloy
  • Supports AMD Socket AM4 A-Series APUs (Bristol Ridge) and Ryzen CPUs (Summit Ridge & Raven Ridge)
  • Supports DDR4 3200+ (OC) (Ryzen CPU) / 2400 (A-series APU)
  • 2 PCIe 3.0 x16, 4 PCIe 2.0 x1
