ASRock Updates AM4 Motherboards for Ryzen 3000 Series

Many gamers and other performance enthusiasts are excited about AMD’s launch of the Ryzen 3000 series this summer. As promised, the new 7 nm processors will use the existing AM4 socket, but it’s up to motherboard manufacturers to update their existing products to be compatible with the new CPUs.

Fortunately for ASRock motherboard owners, the company has now announced that it will provide BIOS updates for 37 different motherboard models to support to the 3000-series processors.

It’s a broad range of models ranging for both the first and second-generation Ryzen CPUs, using the current generation’s X470 and B450 chipsets as well as the initial X370 and B350 chipsets, for whom an upgrade might be most interesting.

In any event, the following motherboards will receive a BIOS update from ASRock:

If you’re currently using the A320 chipset, you are unfortunately out of luck – support for Zen 2 will not be implemented in the entry-level circuitry. Only Ryzen 3000 chips with integrated ‘Picasso’ graphics, which are based on the older Zen+ architecture (and manufactured on 12 nm) will be allowed to run on these boards.

You can the latest BIOS updates from Asrock’s website or via the software provided with the motherboard.

We will be happy to hear your thoughts
