AMD continues to admire its Ryzen 5000 family of processors, which are based on Zen 3 processor cores and can easily rival Intel products. The new arrivals are manufactured with the help of improved 7nm technology, more precisely “7nm + EUV”, which has proven itself in the microprocessor field. AMD has so far offered quite a few Ryzen 5000 processors for sale, but they were only for newer motherboards.
But very soon, that will no longer be the case. AMD has given the green light that Ryzen 5000 processors can also be used in conjunction with older system sets or older motherboards. These are actually motherboards equipped with the A320, B350 and X370 system groups. These are mostly motherboards we could buy five years ago that were designed for AMD’s Ryzen 1000 family of processors.
To use AMD Ryzen 5000 processors on motherboards with the A320, B350, and X370 system combinations, you will of course need to flash the hardware BIOS code first. The latter must be based on the AGESA 220.127.116.11 standard. The new hardware code will be introduced in April and May by all major motherboard manufacturers such as ASUS, MSI and Gigabyte. If the new BIOS hardware code is also available for your motherboard, it will be available on the manufacturer’s official website.
