Earlier, David McAfee, AMD vice president, and general manager of customer channel business said in an interview with the media that AMD is studying how to make 300 series motherboards support Ryzen 5000 (Vermeer) processors, users can get the right experience. It should be known that although some motherboard manufacturers have recently provided new BIOS to allow 300 series motherboards to support Ryzen 5000 processors based on Zen 3 architecture, they are basically concentrated on low-end A320 motherboards, and there are no products like high-end X370 motherboards.
AMD’s AM4 platform is arguably quite long-lived, one of the longest-standing sockets on the DIY market, and can accommodate multiple generations of processors. For users who purchased the AM4 platform early, even if the 300 series motherboards they use do not support Ryzen 5000 processors so well and cannot support some new functions (such as PCIe 4.0), motherboard manufacturers still provide the possibility of upgrading after many years. It can be said that it is very worth it.
