Earlier this year, motherboard manufacturers ASUS and MSI announced they’ll be issuing BIOS updates for the 300 and 400 series mainboards for the upcoming AMD Ryzen 3000 series. This week, ASRock provided a 10.5 update for the B450 Steel Legend, making it the first to support AMD’s 7nm processors with the Zen2 architecture.

AMD is set to announce the Ryzen 3000 series (possibly) along with the Navi GPUs at Computex 2019 at the end of this month. The BIOS version 2.3, based on AGESA (AMD Generic Encapsulated Software Architecture) version “AMD Combo Pi version 1.0.0.1” will support both the upcoming desktop APUs as well as the 7nm Ryzen chips. A comparison of the BIOS versions reveals 3 updated CPUIDs and a new 00870F10 CPUID dated March 23 ’19.

With AMD’s announcement nearing, more manufacturers are soon to follow, and one can expect both ASUS and MSI to issue BIOS updates over the course of the next 2 weeks.
