Gigabyte Releases Beta BIOS for B450 Boards Supporting Ryzen 5000 CPUs

In an official press release, Gigabyte has announced the release of the BIOS updates supporting the Ryzen 5000 CPUs on the 500 series motherboards. However, as per a source on Twitter, the latest F60b BIOS also adds support for the Zen 3 chips on all B450 boards.

This isn’t preliminary support we’re talking about here, rather full-fledged compatibility. We haven’t been able to confirm this for obvious reasons, but will update this post as soon as we have a confirmation.

AMD officially intends to release the beta BIOSes for the 400 series chipsets supporting the Vermeer family in January. It’s possible that this is simply a test BIOS from Gigabyte and not the final version. Regardless, unlike the BIOS update promised by AMD to consumers, this one doesn’t come with a one-way flash path. Meaning, you can flash back to an older BIOS after testing it out.
