    Nice, alright, now looking forward to see which 400 series mobos will get the support as well.

    This is what mobo makers need to do more of, press release tables like these so that new builders dont have to go digging for support lists on their websites.

    I have the CH8 X570 and I am currently using a beta bios which is newer than 2206 and contains and newer AGESA. But it's not the 1.1.0.0 version that probably won't release til nearer the 5000 series launch.

    I wouldn't get your hopes up.

    I have no intention of buying a 5000 series CPU, but I have a feeling I might want to update the bios just for the heck of it once I finally get around to reinstalling Win10.

    Pretty sure they will for the x470 Crosshair VII. It has a large BIOS chip. Not expecting it anytime soon, but I think it will come.

    So the 16MB chip B450 will support Zen 3? I guess it will be a limited BIOS with just Zen 2/3 support.

    Am I missing something here? These BIOS listed were released almost a month ago....? I got excited because I thought it was something new......

    It would be nice if they updated it to fix the soundcard channel swapping issues that plague the entire x570 series boards and Soundblaster Z and AE series cards. Other brands have apparently fixed it.

    I did discover yesterday though that if I uninstall/disable my realtek network adapter entirely, it fixes my SBZ issue. Lucky for me, I don't use that adapter. But I don't feel like that is truly a solution. (Strix x570-E Gaming)

    I guess the table is for clarity.
     

  11. Why's that?
    Man that sucks - didn't even know about this; has this been reported for B550 too?

    In case there have been useful updates since I built this PC early this year. If I reinstall Win10 anyway, I don't need to fear screwing things up with a bios update, so it's the perfect time. Unless you wanted to know why I'm not getting a 5000 series CPU, in which case it's because I'll try to survive with the 3700X for a bit longer.

    Did amd not state that B450 support would come in January 2021 with bios updates and its up to the motherboard vendors to issue out the bios updates.
     
  14. Makes sense ... and yep you read me perfectly was curious on the timing. I’m skipping Zen3 too. I love my Zen2. I love Zen3 I just don’t need one because AMD did so damn well on Zen 2.

    Me too, but apparently not before next year.
    Which of those have a 32MB BIOS anyway, which apparently was a requirement? I can't seem to find this information anywhere...

    I don't think 32MB is required. It'll be a one way flash probably minimum support say Zen 2/3 only.

    Asus skipped the update to AGESA V2 1.0.8.1 for some of the X570s and that was the update that lowered latency. Mine is of course one of those skipped.

    I haven't checked on those but people seem to think it has something to do with the x570 having the new PCIe 4.0 chipset. I think B550 has that too so... maybe? I would hope not. It's an annoying issue. I really dislike onboard sound. But this may only affect a small amount of us, I just know I'm far from the only person experiencing it
