    Asus B350 and A320 also support the new bios, so it depends on specific board .

    Thanks for giving me some hope, I have the B350m Mortar Arctic board. Hoping MSI gets the bios out

    ^ I've got a MSI B350M Gaming Pro, we should be alright. They do tend to release the X370/470 BIOS updates first.

    TDP is not a measure of power consumption, it's a measure of heat production of the chip. A lot of motherboards have a 4 or 6 phase design with doubler(s). For instance the 370 Taichi has a 6+2 phase design and we need to wait and see if it will handle a 10-12 core chip.

    I'm well aware, but it still works as a very rough guideline of what the motherboard (and your cooler) can handle. So, it's still relevant.
    Like I said before, don't expect to be overclocking the 10+ core chips, but they should still work just fine.
    Their boost clocks probably will be limited but that's more of a chipset limitation rather than power power delivery.

    Asus B350-I has the AGESA 0072 update and it's a mini ITX, so I wouldn't lose hope yet. I"m sure they will update it. I'm worried they won't support the 125W 3800X or the 135W 3850X but since they haven't officially announced any procs or specs., it's just more exciting speculation based on a few web store ads. B350M is micro but my point is the same.
    Edit. time to go install! woohoo.

    Ok I just updated to AGESA 0072 in my ROG Strix B350-I Gaming and now all of a sudden I have Precision Boost Overdrive options?! :D Thanks ASUS and AMD.
    PBO On!
    Also, time for another shot at XMP/DOCP 3600, with HH's minor tweak suggestions. Not stable previously, though I was very happy running it at 3200.
    edit I wrote control instead of overdrive:oops:

    It doesn't seem to be out for my Asrock Fatal1ty X370 Gaming K4 yet, but I'll keep checking periodically for it. The motherboard certainly has the power phases to handle the upgrade and since it's one of the mid upper range options from Asrock I think it's fairly likely to be supported.

    Some 400 chipset boards MAY qualify for Gen 4 signalling when paired with a 3x00 cpu, its not likely to be very many though.
