ASRock has been the first to throw in the towel (or give AMD a pulse for a change) by offering a public update to make AMD Ryzen 5000 series processors compatible with its X370 Pro4 motherboard. At the moment it is unknown if this BIOS update will be the only one, since the manufacturer has not commented on it and it is unknown at the moment if other brands will follow the path. Whatever it is and if you have one on hand ASRock X370 Pro4From now on you can update to the latest official BIOS, downloadable from its official website, and obtain this compatibility with Ryzen 5000 processors.

The only official information handled by the brand is a cryptic message on twitter by the official account of ASRock in Japan, where they drop that the ball is now in AMD’s court in this regard, wringing the responsibility to the red manufacturer.

On the other hand, if we intend to use Ryzen 5000 on a motherboard with an X370 chipset, it is worth remembering what functions and options the AMD Ryzen 5000 offers, such as PCIe Gen4, which is not covered by the 300 chipset series. whether or not more manufacturers dare to give this support to their older plates in the coming days or weeks.
