THE OMG always releases new series processors Ryzen 5000but since these are processors with newer technologies, it was still unclear whether first generation motherboards with AM4 would be compatible. However, the Asus confirmed that all new models will be compatible with chipset B350.

The 5000 series was launched in 2020, but continues to receive new models such as the Ryzen 7 5800X3D and Ryzen 5 5500. Considering that the architecture behind the CPU remains Zen3, older chipsets wouldn’t have compatibility issues with newer CPUs, in theory.

In response to the profile Andreas Schillinga Asus confirmed that all new processors will be compatible with B350 input cards, but a BIOS update will be required and will be available from March 25th. Specifically, the Ryzen 5 5500 models are not on the list due to a BIOS code limitation imposed by AMD itself.

Nevertheless, the news is good for owners of older motherboards, as they will be able to count on the possibility of a final processor upgrade without having to replace the entire kit. It should be noted that the series Ryzen 6000, so far, is only confirmed for mobile chips, being available only on laptops. AMD’s next desktop processor family is expected to be the Ryzen 7000this one already with a new architecture Zen4 and taken AM5.
