And yet a A320 can run a 3950x just fine. Just as x570 boards can run a 1300x.

It's do to bios size differences. Not all older boards will support them. So instead of saying some will and others wont. They say none will.

I wonder if mobo manufacturers can offer a BIOS for, at least in my case, B450 with dropped support for ryzen 1000 and 2000 while keeping 3000 and adding 4000 instead. Not that I expect it to be a thing but still kinda interested.

Up to mobo makers to bother update their UEFIs.
This is nothing new. It's only that AMD doesn't make mobos and cannot force mobo makers to updates, it gives them the option to as far as I know unlike Intel that will hunt you down and burn you to the ground if you release a support for newer CPU on an older mobo/chipset.

Hope it's up to manufacturers, because MSI MAX mobos got larger ROM to support ryzen 3xxxx. I'm pretty sure it would be enough space for 4xxx series as well.

It is possible that it could go either way. I don't think the stance that AMD has would be different for whichever it turns out to be (up to the motherboard manufacturers or not possible). At this early stage it would be "Not officially supported" for either one.

That chart is not entirely accurate. As others have mentioned, AMD has historically left support up to the motherboard manufacturers. A good example are the Ryzen 3000 series CPUs.
Those aren't officially supported (as seen on the graph), and yet many B350 boards can accept 3000 chips.

I think we need to wait and see what each motherboard vendor does.

Concern trolling by a few here is pretty funny, as if being able to upgrade all the way to a 3950X is somehow a failure on AMD's part. It had to end eventually and I feel like the complainers would be complaining no matter what.

If you need the new platform get it, if not, don't. I'm pretty sure HW Unboxed tested even some B350 boards as strong enough to run a 3950X.

B450 not being able to upgrade, not such a big deal.. pretty cheap hardware. I'm sure you could sell the old motherboard and get a B550 for not much more.

Feel sorry for x470 owners though (I used to be one, sold it with my 2700x).. was strong speculation that the chipset would get PCIE4 which didn't happen . If this one misses out on Zen 3 too, that's nasty

I paid something like 25% less for my current X470 mobo than my last B350 mobo. There are huge differences in price for all of the chipsets available depending on what features you want.

*Some.

Even if 2 motherboards cant support you cant say B350 support Zen3.
