New BIOS for B450 mainboards: Gigabyte releases AGESA for Zen...
The BIOS updates of the B450 and X470 mainboards for Zen 3 (Vermeer) should not follow until the beginning of 2021, because the current B550 and X570 mainboards have priority first. But on Gigabyte’s website new BIOS versions have been published for the B450 mainboards, which, according to some indications, indicate that these are actually intended for the Ryzen 5000 processors, which will be available from November 5th.

For all B450 models listed, version F60b appears on the BIOS download page, which is not a final, but a beta BIOS. “Enhance CPU compatibility” is always stated as a change, which initially cannot be interpreted as a clear indication of the support for the Zen 3 processors. But a further look at our own community shows that the F60b BIOS contains AMD’s AGESA version ComboAm4v2 PI, which is intended for the optimal operation of the new Ryzen 5000 processors. Our community member xSpy has left a corresponding post in our forum including a screenshot.

We have linked the corresponding BIOS updates for the Gigabyte B450 motherboards below:

  • B450M S2H V2: F60c
  • B450M DS3H V2:F60c
  • B450M S2H: F60c
  • B450M DS3H: F60c
  • B450M DS3H WIFI: F60c
  • B450M H: F60c
  • B450 GAMING X: F60c
  • B450M GAMING: F60c
  • B450 AORUS ELITE V2: F60c
  • B450 AORUS ELITE: F60c
  • B450M AORUS ELITE: F60c

  • B450 AORUS PRO: F60c
  • B450 AORUS PRO WIFI: F60c
  • B450 I AORUS PRO WIFI: F60c

It is questionable whether Gigabyte accidentally released the BIOS versions or whether this was intended in consultation with AMD. Furthermore, it remains open – provided AMD has given the green light – whether the other well-known motherboard manufacturers will follow suit and also consider the X470 models in the near future. Should we have any news about this, we will update this news accordingly.
