AMD 300 series motherboards finally get official Ryzen 5000 support

IN Company press release Word is that all 300-series chipsets will get support for the Ryzen 5000-series processors, meaning the flagship AMD X370, mid-range AMD B350, and even the base AMD A320. AMD is currently working with motherboard manufacturers to implement appropriate BIOS changes. The company noted that beta versions of new such firmware should appear in April.

Keep in mind that these chipsets were introduced in April 2017 along with the very first Ryzen on the Zen architecture. Later, motherboards with 300-series chipsets were brought with support for chips on Zen+ and Zen 2 (Ryzen 2000 and Ryzen 3000) through BIOS updates. And soon they will be able to work with chips on Zen 3. Note that some motherboard manufacturers have already implemented support for Ryzen 5000 on X370 and A320 models, but such cases are few.

Ryzen 5000 support is implemented by adding AGESA V2 PI 1.2.0.7 libraries. You should pay attention to this when you download new BIOS versions for your mainboards.
