[Poll] AMD now supporting Zen 3 on B450 and X470 boards
I have to be honest... I really wished AMD didn't cave in to all the people that got salty over the announcement that Zen 3 wouldn't be supported on B450 and X470 board. Considering everything Dr. Lisa Su and team @AMD has done for us consumers in the past 3 years, they really deserve better; let's all be honest here that AMD is not here to subsidize computer hardware costs or make things "cheaper". I'd rather have an strong AMD that drives price down from COMPETITION (which AMD has been doing for the last 3 years).
The reality with the 4xxx BIOS update is that it WILL remove support for existing Zen chips (1xxx, 2xxx and 3xxx series) due to limited ROM space. AMD engineers and logistics team members will now have to pour valuable time/effort into this instead of making even more powerful 5xxx and 6xxx Ryzen chips. As a disclaimer; someone will botch their bios update (due to w/e reason) and blame AMD anyways... Furthermore, Zen 3 (4xxx) WILL be handicapped on B450 and X470 boards due to Ram speed limitations on those chipsets; people will cry over this too. This is just sad... I genuinely feel we can do better...
Edit: Yeah, let the salty down votes flow~ You're just proving my point
Edit2: Dang... didn't know so many people were more interested in Bananas than Ryzen 4xxx support hahahahaha
Edit3: Please keep in mind Ryzen 4xxx performance will be bottlenecked on B450/X470 boards due to ram speed limitations on said chipsets
