Version 5.72 of the HWiNFO tool hit the web yesterday. Usually we wouldn't report this but this time there are some interesting items in the changelog.

First up, this new release adds support for the upcoming AMD 400-series chipsets. Motherboards with this chipset are designed for the upcoming Zen+ based Ryzen 2000 series, but users of current AM4 motherboards should be able to upgrade if the motherboard maker provides a BIOS update. The Ryzen 2000 series is expected in April.

The tool also adds support for unnamed, future AMD Vega and Navi GPUs, and has preliminary support for the Intel Ice Lake-SP server chip. Somewhat further down the changelog, there's also a note about enhanced support for the AMD Radeon RX Vega M.
