The next motherboard generation for AMD 5000 series

Go to solution Solved by FakeKGB,

AMD, afaik, has said that they are not releasing a new chipset series - B550 and X570 is the Zen 3 chipset to make it less confusing for people (really because AMD doesn't like the chipset business). Before, it was 300 with 1000, 400 with 2000, 500 with 3000, but now it's 500 with 5000.

Hey everyone, tech and retro video game enthusiast here doing my first few posts!

 

I am looking to do a Ryzen 5600x build this year to replace my workhorse 4790K but current motherboards do not have support for AMD 5000 series CPU without a bios update. I could ask for that at the store when buying the motherboard but I am wondering if we are expecting a new generation of motherboards soon or just generally where we are in the motherboard lifecycle. I know CPU and GPU lifecycles but not so much motherboards.

 

Thanks!

Considering X570 already supports PCI-E Gen4 there is little need for a 5000 series specific chipset. I'm guessing the Zen4/DDR5 600 boards will be next in early 2022...

If that's the case then I guess I will stick with an X570 current generation motherboard and get the BIOS update at the store.
