MSI Promises Full 400 Series Motherboard Lineup To Support AMD Ryzen 5000 Processors

As you know, on October 8, AMD announced the release of Ryzen 5000 processors based on the Zen3 architecture. These processors provide significant performance gains over the previous Ryzen 3000 series processors while maintaining socket-level compatibility. The processor maker announced that a firmware update will be ready in January next year to enable support for the new processors on 400-series motherboards by enabling BIOS. This update will be made available to AMD motherboard partners so they can provide support for new processors in their products if they wish.

MSI’s website today posted an answer to a question from users of MSI motherboards on 400 series chipsets – will these boards support AMD Ryzen 5000 processors? MSI has assured that all 400 series motherboards will receive the required BIOS update. A detailed BIOS release schedule will be posted after AMD provides its code.

MSI has already released the latest AGESA COMBO PI V2 1.1.0.0 for all of its X570 and B550 series motherboards, allowing “optimal use of PCI-E 4.0 performance”.

As for the 300 series boards, that is, built on the X370, B350 and A320 chipsets, AMD’s official position is that these boards will not support AMD Ryzen 5000 processors. If AMD makes any new announcements about this, MSI promises to respond in a timely manner.
