With the Ryzen 5000 series from AMD now officially on the way, motherboard makers are planning their BIOS updates for older motherboards. In the case of MSI, we have some good news, as the company has announced that all of its 400-series motherboards will support AMD's latest processors.
Not every motherboard manufacturer is going to include forwards compatibility for Ryzen 5000 on its 400-series motherboards. MSI won't be going down that route though.
“To respond to our users' anticipation, MSI is announcing that all 400 series motherboards, including X470 and B450, MAX, or non-MAX products, will provide BIOS updates later on that can support Ryzen 5000 processors”, MSI said.
MSI also adds that evaluation is currently in progress and we can expect a more detailed BIOS release schedule after code is provided by AMD.
KitGuru Says: It is great to see MSI committing to supporting its older generation boards. Are any of you planning to upgrade to a Ryzen 5000 series CPU soon? Will you be sticking to an older motherboard, or will you be picking up a new one?
