Non-MAX Versions of MSI’s B450 and X470 Motherboards Will Support Zen 3 CPUs Despite 16 MB ROM “Limitation”

If you own an MSI B450 or X470 motherboard, you should be all set for AMD’s Zen 3-based processors. During the latest episode of MSI Insider, Eric Van Beurden and Michiel Berkhout confirmed that Ryzen 4000 support would not be exclusive to its “MAX” variants, which offer a bigger, 32 MB flash memory chip for larger BIOS updates. Owners of the original SKUs should be able to upgrade to Zen 3 just fine – although there are a few caveats to keep in mind.
