AM4 socket maintains compatibility with Ryzen 3000 series processors

Socket AM4 was launched with the first generation of Ryzen processors. Today marks the launch of the 3rd generation Ryzen 3000 series. Despite technology challenges, AMD is able to commit to the same socket and compatibility for the AM4 socket type.

With the new AMD X570 chipset and AMD Ryzen 3000 series processors, we’re launching Ryzen 3000 Ready. If a new X570, X470 or B450 motherboard is calling your name, just look for the “AMD Ryzen Desktop 3000 Ready” badge (shown above) on the box to ensure processor drop-in compatibility.  

For those looking to update their existing PCs with a new processor, motherboard manufacturers have BIOS updates rolling out now. Check out your motherboard vendor’s website for a list of supported processors so that you can easily identify which motherboard will support your Ryzen processor of choice. 

From the chart, we can see that the Ryzen 3000 series are even compatible with the first generation chipsets X370 and B350 thru a beta bios. All 400 series B450, X470 are able to support the Ryzen 3000 series processors with a update BIOS.
