That is fantastic. Going to be a lot of happy people. Quick, snag a B450/X470 on the currently marked down retailer websites before they realize this.

And much celebration was heard in the halls of MSI HQ.
It remains to be seen which board makers will take the time to release firmware updates and which will say "lol, buy new board, pleb".

Quality is up in the air as well. Hopefully we won't have to choose between Zen3 support and fan control/overclocking. RGB and gaudy mecha/dragon/bird graphics can go, though .

True, but his point remains the same. 128mbit/16MB supposedly does not have enough space to store all the CPU compatibility data.




We have had this issue before, where bios version A supports R2000 CPUs and bios version B supports R3000 CPUs. They will have to do something similar again. Hopefully the manufacturers can have a main bios for R3k and R4k at the same time, and a separate one users can install if they want to go back down to just R2k support.

So since we're just doing chipset driver updates and BIOS updates as the norm these days, can we just have a bios-builder checklist that lets me pick what CPUs we want to support and it'll build it for us so we can apply it?

I don't care about many of the models available. I would give up the ones I don't care about for the ones I do.

Im up for that. This would be cool feature but dont think its possibile. CPU code is not something like "ryzen 5 3600 on or off". Whole CPU lineup is tied to big part of code. However you shoudl be able to remove seperate types od cpus. Like apus or specific generstions of desktop ryzens.
