ASUS confirms BIOS support for AMD's Ryzen 7 5800X3D and other new models

ASUS is bringing Zen 3 support to their 300-series AM4 motherboards - Mostly

ASUS has confirmed that they plan to support all of AMD's newly announced Ryzen 5000 and 4000 series processors on their existing AM4 series motherboards, including many of their older X370 and A320 designs.

This CPU support will come in the form of new BIOS updates for the company's motherboards, though it is worth noting that some new models will not be supported by the company's X370 and A320 series motherboards. Specifically, AMD's Ryzen 5 5500 will not be supported, likely due to the CPU's use of AMD Cezanne silicon. The Ryzen 5 5500 will be supported on 400-series and 500-series ASUS AM4 motherboards. 

Strangely, ASUS has not revealed any new CPU support for their B350-series motherboard designs. AMD has confirmed that manufacturers can add this support to B350 motherboard designs, but ASUS appears to have no concrete plans to add this support at this time. On March 25th, limited Zen 3 CPU support will be added to ASUS' X370 and A320 AM4 motherboards. Has B350 been skipped, or is ASUS planning to add this support later?

Below is a chart detailing ASUS' AM4 support plans and the company's latest press release regarding its support for AMD's latest Ryzen processors.
