GIGABYTE releases BIOS updates for its AMD 400 and 300 Series motherboards to support the next-generation AMD Ryzen processors. The newly released BIOS updates for X470 and B450 series motherboards are now available for download at the motherboard’s product page or using the dedicated BIOS update application. GIGABYTE will release BIOS updates for the X370 and B350 Series motherboards by the end of the month. The newest BIOS version, F40 or later versions, is successfully tested and validated to be working on the GIGABYTE 300 and 400 Series motherboards with added compatibility with the upcoming next-generation Ryzen processors.
“As advancements are made in semiconductor technology, microprocessors are becoming more powerful and offer better performance levels. For users looking to upgrade their systems, the compatibility between these new CPUs and their original platforms is an important concern. Before the release of this new generation of AMD Ryzen processors, GIGABYTE wanted to make sure that our motherboards were ready from the start to address this concern. We’ve done our homework and put in the time and dedication to ensure that users will enjoy the very best PC experience.” said Jackson Hsu, Director of the GIGABYTE Channel Solutions Product Development Division.
