Motherboards MSI com chipset AMD da série 400 suportarão os novos processadores Ryzen 5000

Ao contrário do que está a acontecer com outros fabricantes, como foi o caso da Asus com a sua ROG Crosshair VII Hero, a MSI acabou de confirmar, através de um comunicado, que toda a gama de motherboards equipadas com chipset da série 400 (X470 e B450) suportará a nova geração de processadores AMD Ryzen 5000, baseados na nova arquitectura Zen 3.

Isto, no entanto, não significa que a BIOS para suportar os novos processadores estejam disponíveis a 5 de Novembro, data do início da comercialização dos novos processadores da AMD. Para tal, terá que aguardar pelo próximo mês de Janeiro de 2021, altura em que a AMD oficializará o lançamento da BIOS compatível com os novos processadores.

Curiosamente a MSI afirmou que, caso a AMD permita, também as motherboards equipadas com chipsets da série 300 (X370, B350 e A320) poderão receber uma BIOS que permite suportar os novos processadores.

Comunicado da MSI:

AMD has officially announced Zen3 architecture Ryzen 5000 series processors on October 8th. The latest Zen3 processors have significant performance improvements compared to the previous 7nm Ryzen 3000 series processors. For the upcoming processors, MSI has released the latest AGESA COMBO PI V2 1.1.0.0 for all X570 and B550 series motherboards (Link) to perfectly utilize the PCI-E 4.0 performance.

In response to the upgrade demands, AMD also mentioned the BIOS update for selected 400 series motherboards to support Ryzen 5000 series processors will be ready in January 2021.

To respond to our users’ anticipation, MSI is announcing that all 400 series motherboards, including X470 and B450, MAX, or non-MAX products, will provide BIOS updates later on that can support Ryzen 5000 processors. All the evaluation is in progress under the R&D team. A detailed BIOS release schedule will be announced after the BIOS code is provided by AMD. Please stay tuned for the latest information on msi.com.

Regarding the 300 series motherboards, including X370, B350, and A320 chips, AMD’s current official information points out that they are not supported. If AMD makes any official updates later, MSI will also provide the latest information on time.
