This is a follow-up article regarding the Zen 3 architecture and the beta status. A couple of hours ago, a video was shared on the official YouTube channel of AMD. The video was all about the AMD Ryzen 5000 series desktop processors and their impact on gaming. But it led to something more series- Zen 3 for AMD 400 series chipsets.
AMD has officially confirmed that the software code to add Ryzen 5000 Series support for 400 Series motherboard BIOSes is already being shared with partner motherboard companies.
The first beta release of the BIOSes will not be out until January 2021, confirmed on the AMD community page, Reddit. But out of all, the most important piece of the announcement is that “users will not have to verify processor ownership with AMD.”
The BIOSes (including beta and stable) will be made available for the very motherboard series you are using or you prefer. But the availability and the time of release will vary based on the motherboard vendor.
So two things to keep in mind before flashing- the current software your processor runs on and its compatibility/ support as per availability of the upcoming BIOS update.
Last but not the least, this is the final upgrade AMD will release for 400 series motherboard users. Zen 3 is the maximum update the 400 series will achieve. Any update beyond Zen 3 will require a newer or next version of the 400 series motherboard. At the end of the community post, AMD officials have recommended the new AMD users to purchase AMD B550 or X570 motherboard for the best experience.
