MSI Outs Socket AM4 Motherboard BIOS Updates for "Raven Ridge" APU Support

MSI is among the first motherboard manufacturers to release BIOS updates for its entire socket AM4 motherboard lineup, to enable support for Ryzen 3 2200G and Ryzen 5 2400G APUs, based on the "Raven Ridge" silicon. With the two chips installed, you will finally be able to use the DVI, D-Sub, HDMI or DisplayPort connectors on the rear-panel of your socket AM4 motherboards. Motherboards based on AMD's upcoming 400-series chipset, will come with support for "Raven Ridge" APUs out of the box, among other chips, such as the company's upcoming 12 nm "Pinnacle Ridge" processors.

Among MSI's 300-series chipset socket AM4 motherboards to receive "Raven Ridge" support, are the X370 XPower Gaming Titanium, the X370 Gaming M7 ACK, the X370 Gaming Pro Carbon, the X370 Gaming Pro, X370 Gaming Plus, X370 SLI Plus, X370 Krait Gaming; the B350 Tomahawk Plus, the B350 Tomahawk, the B350 Tomahawk Arctic, B350 PC Mate, B350M Gaming Pro, B350M Mortar, B350M Bazooka, B350M Pro-VDH, and A320M Gaming Pro. You'll find the BIOS ROM files in the downloads section of your motherboard's product page on MSI website.

I understand that building ITX AM4 boards is a bit challanging (for wiring reasons) but yea. More of those please.

Great, because there was no AGESA 1.0.0.7 update on most of those models.
My A320M PRO-VH Plus has also got the update available. :)

I hope we'll finally see some cheapo A300/X300 SoC only motherboards with raven ridge release.

Sure would be nice if MSI got back to releasing self installing
BIOS updates on ALL their products. Some of us don't do
Windows you know...

You have the option to download the UEFI update file, shove it into a USB flash drive, reboot to UEFI settings and update from there. I do it like that every time.

i've been on the beta bios with raven ridge support on the x370 gaming pro for a few months now, and its quite a stable BIOS - MSI have removed a bunch of pointless features and slimmed it down a nice amount.

... the files are only available to be flashed from within the UEFI itself from a USB stick, they dont do windows installers

EDIT: New bios let me OC my ram higher, now happily stable at 3066Mhz

Yes, they only give you the BIOS image now and you flash from within the current BIOS. Works great for any OS! :)
