Recent reports indicate that AMD plans to release ten new AM4 platform CPUs/APUs in April, including Ryzen 7 5800X3D
, Ryzen 7 5700X, Ryzen 7 5700, Ryzen 5 5600, Ryzen 5 5500, Ryzen 3 5100, Ryzen 7 4700, Ryzen 5 4600G, Ryzen 5 4500 and Ryzen 3 4100. Among them, the Ryzen 7 5800X3D has attracted the attention of many consumers because it adopts 3D vertical cache technology for the first time.
According to TomsHardware
, Asus and MSI have started offering new BIOS versions for select X570 motherboards in preparation for the upcoming Ryzen 7 5800X3D. The first ASUS motherboards to receive the update include the Dark Hero, Impact, and Extreme models of the ROG Crosshair VIII series, and MSI motherboards
are X570 Godlike, X570S Ace Max, and X570S Torpedo Max.
Since the Ryzen 7 5800X3D is positioned at the high end, it seems reasonable that the X570 motherboard will support the new processor before other motherboards such as the B550. It is believed that more AM4 motherboards will get the new BIOS in the future. Before the release of the Ryzen 7000 series CPUs based on the Zen 4 architecture, AMD will explore the last potential of the AM4 platform to slow down Intel’s attack as much as possible. It is said that the Ryzen 7 5800X3D does not support overclocking, which is rumored to be a requirement from AMD to motherboard manufacturers.
Asus and MSI aren’t the first motherboard makers to offer new BIOSes to support the Ryzen 7 5800X3D, other brands have done so before. Last month, ASRock provided a new BIOS for its various X370 motherboards, which not only officially supports the existing AMD Ryzen 5000 series processors, but also supports the Ryzen 7 5800X3D.
