do combo motherboards have updated BIOS?

I found a combo for a 2600x that I want


https://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboBundleDetails.aspx?ItemList=Combo.3820932&Description=ryzen bundle


However it is a B350 motherboard and on PCpartpicker such motherboards require BIOS updates.


Are the ones in the combo updated?


I don't want to buy it and not be able to update the BIOS.


or should I get this combo



https://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboBundleDetails.aspx?ItemList=Combo.3846400&Description=ryzen bundle


I wanted the 1st one because its a 2600x but if it'll save me a hassle I'll get the 2nd one

If you buy the bundle it'll come with a BIOS version compatible with the CPU (If Newegg didn't that'd be bad for business). If you want the latest you'll be able to update from there.


If you're using the bundle site as a reference and plan to buy them separately on PCpartpicker then buying a newer gen chip on a board that requires a BIOS update to be compatible then there's no guarantee.


What are the chances you have a friend around with a chip in case the new one doesn't work due to BIOS incompatibility?
