While AMD was against the decision of board partners to release unofficial BIOS updates but recently owing to the huge competition it is facing from Intel, the Red team has made it official that Zen 3 support will be coming on even X370, B350 & A320 chipsets.
AMD wanted to reserve the Ryzen 5000 series for their 500 series motherboards but fans didn’t support this and AMD had to open the support for 400 series motherboards. Now, to lure more customers and extend the sale of its newer and older Ryzen 5000 series processors, the Red team has extended support even on its older 300 series motherboards.
Extended AMD 300 Series Motherboard Support
In addition to these exciting new processor releases, AMD announced it is extending support for Ryzen 5000 Series processors on AMD 300 Series chipsets, including all the new desktop processors announced today. The latest AMD Ryzen 5000 Series processors will be supported on AMD X370, B350 and A320 chipsets, offering a seamless upgrade path to “Zen 3” performance.
Selective BETA BIOS updates are expected to become available in April. So, if you have an AMD 300 series motherboard and want to upgrade to a new CPU like the Ryzen 5 5600, you have to wait for the BIOS that will be based on the AGESA 220.127.116.11 firmware.
