MSI latest Beta BIOS for AMD 500-series motherboards adds support for “future AM4 socket processors”. This BIOS update comes with the Combo PI V2 126.96.36.199 which includes other optimisations and fixes for memory and CPU overclocking related issues.
For now, only 11 motherboards have received this Beta BIOS update: 5x X570 motherboards and 6x B550 motherboards. The rest of MSI's X570 and B550 motherboards will receive it in the middle of October, while the MSI A520 motherboards will only get it by the end of October. Once the Beta BIOS update for the A520 motherboards has been released, MSI will start to ship the MP BIOS for the X570 and B550 motherboards.
The changelog for the Combo PI V2 188.8.131.52 Beta BIOS is the following:
- Optimized compatibility for AMD Ryzen 3000-Series and Ryzen 4000 G-Series Desktop Processors and future AM4 socket processors
- Solve some specific OC failure issues
- Update SMU module
- Optimized DDR4 memory overclocking solution
Given the timing, the “future AM4 socket processors” pointed out in the changelog should be the upcoming Ryzen 5000 series desktop processors. AMD is set to announce the new Ryzen 5000 series on October 8th, and by the looks of it, its launch should follow just a few weeks later.
