AMD Ryzen 5000 Series CPUs Not Supported on Asus X470 Motherboards

If this is true, Asus maybe shooting themselves in the foot. I guess they want to focus and support their X570 and B550 motherboards instead … which makes sense. Still, I love the fact that OTHER manufacturers are planning to support the AMD Ryzen 5000 Series CPUs on their 400-series chipset motherboards, albeit with a BETA firmware.

Taken from TPU …  Going a few months back, AMD released a statement regarding the support for its upcoming Ryzen 5000 series CPUs and said that it should enable compatibility with the last-generation X470 and B450 chipset. That, however, has remained a bit of mystery. The update is baked-in with the BIOS, which every manufacturer, like MSI, ASUS, Gigabyte, etc. provides independently of AMD. So it is a manufacturer-dependant case, where if one vendor chooses not to provide support for 400 series chipsets, many motherboards will not support new CPU generation.

This represents the case of what seems to be happening with ASUS. In correspondence with ASUS support, a customer asked ASUS if they plan to update a Crosshair VII Hero X470 motherboard with support for AMD’s upcoming Ryzen 5000 series CPUs, the company gave a rather negative answer. Here is the quote below:

ASUS Support


I am writing this email to provide you an update about your ongoing case. According to our engineers, We have no plans for the Crosshair VII Hero to support the Ryzen 5900X, please purchase Crosshair VIII Hero and any Ass (*ASUS) B550 motherboard that will support Ryzen 5900X and 5000 series processors.
