Word is going around that AMD is working on a new AGESA update that will add support for the upcoming Zen-based Raven Ridge APUs. The origin of this rumor is pro overclocker elmor, who is associated with the ASUS ROG team.

He says AMD made significant changes to the BIOS structure of AMD motherboards, which will make it easier to implement support for future CPUs. The update that adds Raven Ridge support will be AGESA version
"AGESA 1007 comes with support for Raven Ridge APUs. AMD has also changed the entire BIOS base structure so we have to do a lot of work to port everything to the new version, which may result in further bugs. The advantage is that it makes it easier to support future CPUs (Raven Ridge, Pinnacle Ridge)," he said.
AGESA updates are compiled by AMD but have to be distributed by motherboard makers via BIOS updates. It's unknown when we can expect the first BIOS updates with AGESA
