I have an i5 6400 and want to upgrade to a ryzen 5 5600x

Hello guys, hope you're doing well.

 

Long story short. I have an i5 6400 and I want to upgrade to a ryzen 5 5600x but the problem is, how am I going to update the bios once I buy the CPU with an x570?

because I don't have an older CPU to update the bios you know.

 

Is it really needed? can I update it without older CPU? or is there any new motherboard is going to launch any time soon?

 

Thank you.

You can update without an old cpu if the board has a bios flash button

 

Otherwise, take it to a computer store and they should be able to do it for either free or a small fee

Could you explain this to me? I'm sorry but I'm not an expert.

Can you give me a motherboard that has a bios flash? and if you have a video for how to do it I will be grateful ❤️

Such as the X570 tomahawk

 

Instead of booting into the bios, you'll stick your usb in with the update file on it, and use that button to flash
