AMD Ryzen 9000 “Zen 5” Beta BIOS Updates Released, Launch Soon?

AMD has rolled out the first firmware update that enables Ryzen 9000 CPU support on AM5 motherboards. The Zen 5 desktop processors, codenamed Granite Ridge are expected to land in the second half of the year. We’ve been contemplating a Computex reveal for the Ryzen 9000 family in June, and with this BIOS update, it is almost a certainty.

The ASUS ROG Crosshair and Strix X670E motherboards are the first to receive Zen 5 support via the beta BIOS 2003. The name of the AGESA microcode has also been changed to FireRangePi (from ComboAM5PI) with SMU 98.58.0 being the first release for Granite Ridge.

We know a good deal about the Zen 5 core architecture by now. Details about the frontend, backend, execution units, and core interconnect have leaked. These chips will be fabbed on TSMC’s 4nm node and be fully compatible with existing B650 and X670 motherboards. Here’s everything we know about the Ryzen 9000 lineup.
