ASUS and Gigabyte rely on Ryzen 5000 on A320 boards

Remember, before the Ryzen 5000 was released, AMD tried to limit support to its next generation processors, the X570 and B550 motherboards? It was something that soon took a “blow” as consumers pointed to the company’s own words and promises.

And that was evidently a purely monetary experiment. In the end, ASUS and Gigabyte just added support for the weaker motherboards in the AMD Ryzen ecosystem … The low-end A320 boards.

Therefore, after several complaints and protests, AMD has decided to extend support for the Ryzen 5000 motherboards to B450 motherboards as well as some high-end 300 series motherboards. But it looks like there have never been any issues with any of the Ryzen ecosystem motherboards on the market. In the end, both ASUS and Gibgayte decided to release a BIOS update for several A320 models, relying on the support of the latest CPU generation from AMD.

Please note, however, that … These processors are working at their maximum capacity!

It now remains to be seen whether this wave will catch the next AMD processors, the Ryzen 6000, based on the Zen 3+ architecture, which will supposedly continue to be compatible with current motherboards that can support a Ryzen 5000.

Besides, what do you think of all of this? Was it all a move by AMD to try and refresh the full range of motherboards already on the market? Please let us know what you think in the comments below.
