ASUS promised to endow motherboards on AMD B450 and X470 with Ryzen 5000 support in a couple of weeks

Good news for owners of ASUS motherboards based on AMD X470 and B450 chipsets. The Taiwanese manufacturer has confirmed via Twitter that it will soon release new BIOS versions based on AGESA microcode 1.1.8.0, which will provide support for the new Ryzen 5000 series processors.

The company indicated that new firmware versions will be released in the coming weeks.

A day earlier, ASRock introduced new beta BIOS versions for its B450 motherboards supporting the new AMD Vermeer Zen 3 processors. However, ASRock’s new firmware is based on the earlier version of the AGESA 1.1.0.0 protocol. The manufacturer also plans to provide appropriate support for motherboards based on the AMD X470 chipset.

The release of special BIOS versions with support for new processors based on Zen 3 architecture with older boards seems to have started earlier than expected. Previously, many manufacturers said they would only release new microcode versions in January next year when AMD will introduce a special version of the AGESA protocol to initialize new Ryzen 5000 processors.

According to the resource Wccftech, some manufacturers have confirmed that motherboards based on AMD 300 series chipsets (A320 and X370) will also be able to work with new AMD processors based on Zen 3 in the future. Special BIOS versions will also be released for them. Indirect confirmation of this was observed quite recently. For example, the 12-core Ryzen 9 5900X “wound up” on the old budget board ASRock A320, apparently due to the beta version of the new firmware.
