ASRock figures out Ryzen 5000 alpha support for X370 motherboards

AMD has no plans to enable Ryzen 5000 series processor support for 300-series motherboards but it seems at least some motherboard makers are working on this. An alpha version of a new BIOS update for the ASRock X370 Taichi motherboard is floating around the web. VideoCardz writes the update allows users to use a Ryzen 5000 series processor on the X370-based motherboard.
The P6.61 BIOS is available to download through the JZelectronics website, but we do not recommend trying as it has not been officially released by ASRock, nor it has been publically announced by the manufacturer.
While it may run, it will not be ideal as now all new features of the Zen 3 architecture are supported by the 300-series chipsets. There's also no PCI Express 4.0 support of course.
