ASUS and Gigabyte A320 motherboards add Ryzen 5000 CPU support

Ah, the A320 chipset. It’s not exactly the chipset of choice for most gaming devices, but they can run mid-to-low-end CPUs and any other AM4 motherboards.thanks Tom’s hardware, The news comes Asus with Gigabyte Ryzen 5000 series support has been enabled on many of their A320 motherboards. This means that A320 users have an upgrade path that can bring huge performance improvements without having to purchase a new motherboard.

A320 has always been a cheap chipset. They tend to contain very little VRM cooling (if any), and they do not have the connectivity and functionality of the B350 and X370 boards. However, due to the low power consumption characteristics of the Zen architecture, you can run things like Ryzen 1700 with a high-end GPU without losing much performance. One of the many ways to reduce the cost of motherboards is to use low-capacity BIOS chips. In view of the huge number of AM4 CPUs, not all CPUs can be supported. In order to solve this problem, the manufacturer seems to have given up support for the Bristol Ridge processor. These are the APUs before Ryzen AM4, so it is unlikely to miss their support.
