Motherboard manufacturers Release AM4 BIOS With Raven Ridge APU Support

Published by


While intended for mobile, it seems that the AMD Raven Ridge APUs will reach the desktop platform as well, as motherboard manufacturers are rolling out BIOS updates supporting Raven Ridge.

That means the APuwould work and fit in the existing AM4 socket. Raven Ridge is based on four Zen cores and 10 GPU shader clusters holding 64 streaming processors each. Matched up, that's close to a comparable quad-core Ryzen 5 processor but now with, let's say a Radeon RX 550 video card. The news reaches the web through planet3dnow who noticed the BIOS updates.

ASUS, for example, is currently distributing version 3203 (

V9 RavenPI-FP5-AM4" and support for Bristol Ridge, Summit Ridge and Raven Ridge. In addition, to support for the CPU part (ie AGESA), the respective video BIOS is included (BRISTOL AM4 Generic VBIOS and Raven Generic VBIOS). The fact that BIOS updates are already being distributed suggests that the Raven Ridge family's desktop representatives will soon be making a big start.

Due to the demand here is the list of motherboards for which a corresponding BIOS update is available:

So far we have not been able to find updates for motherboards from other manufacturers with Raven Ridge support.
