ASUS Announces Support for AMD Ryzen Desktop Processors with Radeon Vega Graphics

    BIOS update for ASUS X370, B350 and A320 motherboards with AM4 socket available now, ready for latest AMD Ryzen 2000 Series APUs


    TAIPEI, Taiwan, February 9, 2018 — ASUS today announced that its complete lineup of AM4-socket-based motherboards now offer support for the first Zen architecture-based AMD Ryzen™ desktop processors with Radeon™ Vega graphics Accelerated Processing Units (APUs), via a BIOS update that’s available immediately.

    These all-new AMD Ryzen 2000 Series APUs combine up to four Zen-based CPU cores with integrated Radeon Vega graphics. When used in combination with ASUS AMD AM4 Series motherboards, AMD Ryzen 2000 Series APUs offer great-value performance and deliver best-in-class gaming and graphics experiences.

    Existing owners of ASUS AM4-socket motherboards can update their systems quickly and easily with the intuitive ASUS USB BIOS Flashback or ASUS EZ Flash 3 tools. In addition, an updated graphics driver — available from the ASUS support website — pushes the integrated AMD Radeon graphics to new performance heights for best-ever visual and gaming experiences with AMD Ryzen 2000 Series APUs.

    Quick-and-easy BIOS update delivers instant compatibility with AMD Ryzen 2000 Series APUs

    Updating an ASUS AM4-socket-based motherboard for compatibility with the latest AMD Ryzen 2000 Series APUs takes just moments, via one of two simple methods. With the ASUS-exclusive USB BIOS Flashback feature built in to many ASUS motherboards, users only need to download the latest UEFI BIOS to a USB flash drive, connect the motherboard’s power supply, insert a FAT32-formatted USB drive, and then press the motherboard’s USB BIOS Flashback or Reset button. No AM4 processor or memory modules need to be in place, and the update will complete in a few moments.

    Alternatively, users may update via the EZ Flash 3 utility that’s integrated with the ASUS UEFI BIOS. This tool allows the update to be applied via an inserted USB drive or downloaded directly from the internet. Users are also advised to update to the newest Radeon Vega drivers (V23.20.817.0 or later) to enjoy the best-possible graphics performance. These drivers are available for download from the ASUS microsite, at https://www.asus.com/microsite/mb/AMD-Ryzen-2000-APU-ready.
