Other board vendors also have announcements regarding 400-series support for AMD Ryzen 5000 CPUs coming in next week so stay tuned for more information. Some vendors have also confirmed 300-series (A320 / X370) support in the future which will be awesome considering that there are a ton of users who still have older 1st Gen AM4 motherboards running in their PCs and it will be nice to have support up till the tail-end generation of Ryzen AM4 CPUs.
