The sharp dragon 5000 series processor released last week is very good and powerful. The zen3 architecture makes IPC increase by 19%. However, it is still based on AM4 socket and supports DDR4 memory and pci4.0, which have not changed.
There is no doubt that the 500-series chipsetAmd also promised that the 400 series chipset will join the Reebok 5000 supportThe BIOS will not be upgraded until January next year.
But in this matter, ASUS recently made an own dragon, which worried many 400 series motherboard users.
This is the case. On the reddit forum, ASUS representatives pointed out in their response that,No new BIOS will be provided for Rog crosshair VII hero motherboard to support the Reebok 5000 processor. It is recommended that you purchase crosshair VIII hero or b550 series motherboards.
Crosshair VII hero is an x470 chipset, so it soon spread on the Internet that ASUS is not going to support the Reebok 5000 platform for 400 series chipsets.
However, the German computerbase website is more cautious,They contacted ASUS Germany, which in turn contacted ASUS headquarters, and received a clear response, confirming that the 400 series plan to support the Reebok 5000 has not changed, and ASUS is preparing for this.
This incident has become a farce, but it can't be entirely blamed on the confusion of consumers or manufacturers. Amd announced the support of chipsets for processors after the release of b550. At that time, it was confirmed that b550 and x570 would only support zen3 processors, while 400 series did not. It would only stay on the zen2 architecture support.
Because of this, amd has been criticized by many a fans. It seems that not long ago, amd changed its mind and decided to let the 400 series support the Reebok 5000.
However, this matter still depends on the specific situation of the motherboard manufacturer. Whether to support a new generation of processors is not as simple as imagined. We should consider the BIOS chip, capacity and even the motherboard itself. We have to wait for some time to see the progress of the motherboard manufacturer.
