MSI updates their AM4 lineup to support Raven Ridge

When AMD released their AM4 motherboard platform, the company stated that they planned to support the socket for several product generations, allowing 1st generation motherboards to be used with several generations of Ryzen products. 

MSI has now updated their whole AM4 lineup bios containing AGESA version 1.1.0.1, offering support for Raven Ridge APUs while also delivering some compatibility improvements. Some users have also reported higher memory speeds as the result of this update, allowing more users to reach native speeds on their 3200MHz memory.  

With the release of Raven Ridge in the form of the Ryzen 3 2200G and Ryzen 5 2400G the video outputs on AM4 motherboards will finally be utilised, thanks to Raven Ridge's included Vega graphics component. At this time it is unknown whether or not further BIOS updates are required to offer support for AMD's upcoming Ryzen + architecture, which will replace AMD's high-end Ryzen lineup.

With the desktop release of Raven Ridge, AMD finally has a product that is capable of taking on the i3 in the low-end consumer desktop market, no longer requiring a dedicated graphics card to function. This release will bring competition back into the low-end desktop market and give office users options outside of Intel for general purpose systems.

Is there a way to flash the bios on an AM4 board if the your raven ridge CPU is unsupported by the current bios?

So say you buy a new AM4 board and raven ridge CPU, but the current bios version on the board doesn't support the new CPU, is there an easy way to update the bios if you don't have a supported CPU?Quote

Some boards you can just plug in a USB drive into a specific port and it will flash it. Not all boards have it..

You could go in to a shop and ask them to flash it or borrow a CPU so you can flash it tooQuote
