    Is it Possible To Know BIOS Revision On Motherboard Before Ordering?

    I'm interested in ordering from Scan:
    Gigabyte A320M-S2H micro-ATX AM4 Motherboard
    Scan code: LN86894
    Manufacturer code: A320M-S2H

    Planning to use this with AMD Athlon 200GE The information on the Gigabyte website, says the board needs a BIOS update for the CPU to work.

    As per the title of this post, is it possible to know what revision the BIOS is at on the stock you have or is it possible for you to update it before the board being sent out?

    Thank you for your time.

    Re: Is it Possible To Know BIOS Revision On Motherboard Before Ordering?

    I'm not sure if they can tell but they at least used to offer a BIOS flash service. I ordered a board from them a couple of years ago and needed it to be at a certain BIOS revision to work with the CPU I had. Think it cost in the region of £10 to £15 quid but on a £400 motherboard it was worth it to be 100% sure that it would be compatible.
