After the Zen 2 reveal, AMD had announced that none of the A320 boards would support the Ryzen 3000 processors, but it seems like Asus and Biostar have gone ahead and released BIOS updates that allow users to run the new 7nm processors.

Now, Komachi has confirmed this by sharing two Geekbench results which show a Ryzen 5 3600 running on an Asus A320M-K and A320M GAMING motherboards.
