AMD Ryzen 5000 CPU & Smart Access Memory support for X470 & B450 Motherboards

There has been a lot of talk going on regarding AMD Ryzen 5000 Desktop CPU and Smart Access Memory support on X470 and B450 motherboards. Some board vendors are enabling early support for the latest Ryzen processors on their 400-series boards while others are prepping to add SAM support to these motherboards but it looks like an official firmware is still planned for January launch. There are already motherboard makers who have landed early support for Ryzen 5000 CPUs on their boards based on the 400-series chipsets.

As of right now, only AMD’s 500-series motherboards based on the X570 and B550 chipset have the official BIOS to support Ryzen 5000 Desktop CPUs and Smart Access Memory technology. The AMD 400-series motherboards based on the X470 and B450 chipsets have no official support as of right now.
