Zen 3 processor support was included by installing the X470 BIOS on the X370 chipset.In early November, we witnessed the Ryzen 9 5900X processor running on an ASRock branded A320 motherboard. Thus, it was understood that Zen 3 processors could work on 300 series chipsets. Now, if we look at a new BIOS posted on jzeletronic.
de, ASRock’s X370 Taichi motherboard can use a Ryzen 5000 processor.
Many manufacturers have already rolled out the new BIOS update for X470 and B450 chipset motherboards. As you know, AMD has officially stated that Ryzen 5000 series processors will not be supported on 300 series motherboards. Reaching AMD again, Tom’s Hardware received the following response:
“AMD has no plans to enable or support the Ryzen 5000 series on 300 series chipsets.”
It is possible to download the P6.61 BIOS from the website, but we do not know if ASRock has official support. Also, this alpha version may cause some bugs.
The BIOS revision may be a firmware modified version by an enthusiast. It seems that the X470 Taichi BIOS microcodes were used on the older X370 Taicri motherboard model.
There is a low chance that the red team will change their decision in the coming days. On the other hand, motherboard manufacturers may also offer Ryzen 5000 support to some 300 series models. However, we have no choice but to wait early and to make a definitive comment on this issue.
