A couple of days back, we shared a few Geekbench scores which had the Ryzen 5 3600 running on an A320 motherboard, despite a clear announcement from AMD that the platform won’t be supporting the new Zen 2 chips. Now, we’ve got a German YouTuber running a 1st Gen Ryzen part, the Ryzen 7 1800X on an X570 board.

The board in question is the MSI X570 ACE, and in the video, it detects the 1800X without any trouble and then is able to boot properly as well. I’m not really sure if the main perks of the X570 platform like the PCIe 4.0 standard, faster memory and better I/O will work well with the older Zen or Zen+ processors, but seems like they’ll support them at the very least. I believe the same can be said of the new Ryzen 3000 CPUs’ compatibility with the A320 boards.
