    I assume these will be Zen3 compatible,due to the enhanced VRMs and larger 32MB BIOS. So are you going to update the BIOS of my B450I Strix to run Zen3 then Asus?? 6+1 phase VRM and 32MB BIOS,so no excuse??

    I hope so,as the B450I Strix technically should have enough hardware to run a Ryzen 5000 series CPU.

    With B550 boards available at increasingly reasonable prices these days (I picked up a decent MSI WiFi/multi-M.2 enabled mobo for my Dad, for less than £150), Asus will surely have to price these B450 boards pretty aggressively.

    My inner sceptic really wants to be surprised by Asus selling something at a bargain price point ;-)

    Even mobos with 16MB ROM chips would suffice probably if the fancy UEFI ui is discarded in favor for a simpler (but equally functional) look and possibly eliminating support for Zen 1 (and maintaining Zen+ and onward support).

    Hold on to those beta BIOS files!
    The ASRock A300 mini computer got a beta support for Renoir but it was later pulled AFAIK.

    ASRock want to sell the X300 instead despite both 'chipsets', to so-called A300 and X300, being pretty empty chips as the Zen SOC does all the work.
