Motherboard manufacturer Asus has confirmed it’s 400-series chipset motherboards will still support AMD’s new Ryzen 5000-series Zen 3 CPUs.
The company was forced to issue a statement today following a supposed slip up by one of its customer service representatives.

As a result, owners of said boards would not be able to upgrade their CPUs.

AMD has been quite clear that X470 motherboards would support Ryzen 5000 CPUs and recently confirmed that motherboard manufacturers were working on BIOS versions accordingly, with 400-series boards
