Yea, not going to boycott MSI... Just because Zen 2 is still on AM4 doesn't mean that I expected the board manufactures to do us any big favors. It was obvious back in January that if you wanted to fully take advantage of Zen 2 that you would need to get a new board. Things like PCI 4.0 aren't just going to be downloaded in a BIOS update. Yes, it sucks that you are left with a watered down BIOS, but they did offer a BIOS update and the new CPUs will work with it. Contact their customer support and complain to them. They may release another BIOS that addresses some of your complaints.

No

What are you talking about? Most X470 and all of B450 boards from ALL manufacturers have a 16MB bios. At least MSI is trying to amend that issue with new upgraded boards and new BIOSes that support ZEN2. RAID support is already fixed on the new BIOS versions and they just cut down the fancy UI and old CPU support. So what?
