Les chipsets X470 et B450 supporteront les CPU AMD Ryzen 4000

Jusque là nous pensions que les futurs CPU AMD Ryzen 4000 ne seraient pas compatibles avec les cartes mères X470 suite à l’annonce du chipset B550. Retournement de situation puisque AMD a fait une déclaration intéressante.

Youpi, les processeurs AMD Ryzen 4000 pourront prendre place sur les chipsets X470 et B450

C’est une super nouvelle pour celles et ceux qui s’intéressent aux nouveaux processeurs AMD Ryzen 4000. Si vous disposez déjà d’une carte mère disposant d’un chipset X470 ou B450, vous pourrez la garder. C’est un véritable retournement de situation de la part d’AMD par rapport à ce que le constructeur avait annoncé.

Compatibilité AM4 avec AMD Ryzen 4000

Voici la déclaration officielle d’AMD :

As we head into our upcoming “Zen 3” architecture, there are considerable technical challenges that face a CPU socket as long-lived as AMD Socket AM4. For example, we recently announced that we would not support “Zen 3” on AMD 400 Series motherboards due to serious constraints in SPI ROM capacities in most of the AMD 400 Series motherboards. This is not the first time a technical hurdle has come up with Socket AM4 given the longevity of this socket, but it is the first time our enthusiasts have faced such a hurdle.

Over the past week, we closely reviewed your feedback on that news: we watched every video, read every comment and saw every Tweet. We hear that many of you hoped for a longer upgrade path. We hear your hope that AMD B450 and X470 chipsets would carry you into the “Zen 3” era.

Our experience has been that large-scale BIOS upgrades can be difficult and confusing especially as processors come on and off the support lists. As the community of Socket AM4 customers has grown over the past three years, our intention was to take a path forward that provides the safest upgrade experience for the largest number of users. However, we hear you loud and clear when you tell us you would like to see B450 or X470 boards extended to the next generation “Zen 3” products.

As the team weighed your feedback against the technical challenges we face, we decided to change course. As a result, we will enable an upgrade path for B450 and X470 customers that adds support for next-gen AMD Ryzen™ Processors with the “Zen 3” architecture. This decision is very fresh, but here is a first look at how the upgrade path is expected to work for customers of these motherboards.

    1. We will develop and enable our motherboard partners with the code to support “Zen 3”-based processors in select beta BIOSes for AMD B450 and X470 motherboards.

    2. These optional BIOS updates will disable support for many existing AMD Ryzen™ Desktop Processor models to make the necessary ROM space available.

    3. The select beta BIOSes will enable a one-way upgrade path for AMD Ryzen Processors with “Zen 3,” coming later this year. Flashing back to an older BIOS version will not be supported.

    4. To reduce the potential for confusion, our intent is to offer BIOS download only to verified customers of 400 Series motherboards who have purchased a new desktop processor with “Zen 3” inside. This will help us ensure that customers have a bootable processor on-hand after the BIOS flash, minimizing the risk a user could get caught in a no-boot situation.

    5. Timing and availability of the BIOS updates will vary and may not immediately coincide with the availability of the first “Zen 3”-based processors.

    6. This is the final pathway AMD can enable for 400 Series motherboards to add new CPU support. CPU releases beyond “Zen 3” will require a newer motherboard.

    7. AMD continues to recommend that customers choose an AMD 500 Series motherboard for the best performance and features with our new CPUs.

Dans le premier point nous pouvons lire :

We will develop and enable our motherboard partners with the code to support “Zen 3”-based processors in select beta BIOSes for AMD B450 and X470 motherboards.

Ce qui veut dire :

« Nous allons développer et donner accès au code à nos partenaires pour supporter les processeurs basés sur l’architecture « Zen 3 » sur une sélection de BIOS beta pour les cartes mères AMD B450 et X470. »

Même si plus bas « AMD continue de recommander aux clients de choisir une carte mère AMD série 500 pour les meilleures performances et fonctionnalités avec nos nouveaux processeurs ».

AMD Ryzen 4000 compatible avec B450 X470 B550 et X570

Quoi qu’il en soit, le plus important à retenir dans tout ça, c’est que les les cartes mères disposant de chipsets X470 et B450 seront à même d’accueillir les futurs Ryzen 4000 et cela nous ravit forcément. Un investissement de moins à prendre en compte dans l’achat de votre prochaine configuration.

  1. Très content que, malgré une position qui devient dominante sur le marché des CPU, la société garde la recette qui a fait son succès face à ses concourants.
