ASUS and MSI Gear Up for Next-Gen AMD Ryzen CPUs with Latest Firmware Updates

Firmware Tease Hints at Imminent Arrival of New Ryzen Series

The tech community is abuzz with the latest confirmation from ASUS and MSI regarding their support for the upcoming AMD Ryzen CPUs. The recent release of the Combo AM5 Pi patch A firmware for AMD600 series motherboards has been officially declared to support the much-anticipated next-gen Ryzen series.

Although AMD has yet to unveil the official name for the Zen5-based CPU lineup, strong hints within AMD’s software point to the Ryzen 9000 moniker. These CPUs are expected to be fully compatible with all AM5 socket motherboards, requiring nothing more than a simple BIOS update to integrate. Several motherboards have already rolled out this crucial update, in anticipation of AMD’s release of the Zen5 desktop CPUs.

ASUS has taken the lead with its B650E-I Gaming ROG STRIX motherboard, which now officially supports the next-gen Ryzen CPUs. MSI is not far behind, having issued a press release to confirm the same. This strategic move is likely a precursor to an exciting announcement expected at AMD’s keynote at Computex 2024, which is just a short wait away.

The Ryzen 9000 series, codenamed “Granite Ridge,” is rumored to pack a punch with up to 16 Zen5 cores. This groundbreaking architecture is poised to revolutionize not just desktop computing but also aims to make its mark on laptops and potentially handheld devices. While the release schedule for these devices remains under wraps, AMD has made one thing clear: Zen5 will hit the market this year.
