According to AMD’s board partners, select A320 & X370 motherboards will feature full support for AMD Ryzen 5000 Desktop CPUs while Gigabyte and ASUS have already released BIOS support for the Zen 3 based processors in BETA version (via @Harukaze5719)
AMD Board Partners Showcase Ryzen 5000 Desktop CPUs Running on A320 & X370 Motherboards, Selective BETA-BIOS For ASUS & Gigabyte B450 Motherboards Out Now
The report comes from various forums where users have already got access to BETA BIOS for the A320 & X370 motherboards which allows support for AMD Ryzen 5000 Desktop CPUs. According to a member of Chiphell Forums, the AMD 300-series motherboards can fully support the Ryzen 5000 series processors and one such sample has been shown running on an entry-level ASRock A320M-HDV motherboard.
The motherboard was shown running an AMD Ryzen 9 5900X 12 core processor along with 16 GB of DDR4 memory and even supports AMD’s Ryzen 4000G Renoir APUs. It looks like motherboard makers already have BIOS’s for X370 & A320 motherboards in the works but we don’t expect them to roll them out anytime soon since AMD has officially stated that Ryzen 5000 Desktop CPUs will be only supported by 400 and 500-series motherboards.
