AMD announced their Ryzen 5000 Series "Vermeer" CPUs on September 8th 2020 and they will be available on shelves for purchase starting from November 5th 2020. The CPUs that were announced were AMD Ryzen 5 5600X, Ryzen 7 5800X, Ryzen 9 5900X and Ryzen 9 5950X. AMD will later down the line announce more CPUs in the form of Ryzen 5 5600, Ryzen 7 5700X and even Ryzen 3 SKUs. For those of you who already own a A520, B550 & X570 motherboard there is already a AGESA v2 1.0.8.x and AGESA v2 1.1.0.x BIOS update available that will provide support for the upcoming Ryzen 5000 Vermeer CPUs on your existing motherboards. Coming to the B450 and X470 chipset based motherboards, AMD has announced that they will release a beta BIOS for the boards but it is totally upon the board manufacturer if they want to provide the option for upgradability for its 400 chipset series motherboards or not.

This also gives the board manufacturers the ability to carry on support for a few B450 and X470 boards and then ditch support for few others. Today we will list the list of boards that already have support for the upcoming Zen 3 based Ryzen 5000 series CPUs and the boards that the manufacturers are have promised that they will provide support for the same some time in the future.
 
Note to all: We will keep this list updating as we get more information so keep checking back if your board is not already listed here.

ASUS:

Update (24/11/2020):  ASUS have released beta BIOS based on AGESA V2 P1 1.1.8.0 for select B450 and X470 boards (list below), but ASUS have also warned users not to update the BIOS if you are using Ryzen 3000 / 2000 / 1000 Series CPUs and have also warned that this BIOS update is non-reversible. Here's the exact statement that ASUS put out with the new beta BIOS: 
It's highly recommended not to update this beta BIOS when using AMD AM4 socket for AMD Ryzen™ 3000 Series / 2000 Series / 1000 Series / A-Series Desktop Processors. This beta BIOS can't be reversed.

(Old Content):
Update: ASUS on November 18th, 2020 have promised that their 400 Series (B450 and X470) motherboard BIOS for Ryzen 5000 Series CPUs will drop in a couple of weeks.
 
Few days ago reports came out that ASUS may not support its higher-end X470 boards that was quickly debunked by ASUS themselves @asusde to be precise giving a statement to @planet3dnow (check it out here) that ASUS will roll out new BIOS versions for its B450 and X470 boards starting early next year. ASUS will provide BIOS updates for all of its 500 chipset series boards (A520, B550 and X570 boards) to support Ryzen 5000 Series chipset. It is also to be noted that ASUS have already provided AGESA v2 1.0.8.x BIOS to a few of its A520, B550 and X570 boards to support the upcoming CPUs as soon as they are available for purchase on November 5th.

In another statement given bu ASUS to hexus, they stated the following and we quote:
ASUS will support AMD's support plan to release a new BIOS on X450, B450 and B450 II motherboards and all those available in the market at present will also be compatible with that BIOS upgrade.

Here's a list of B450 boards from ASUS that will support AMD Ryzen 5000 CPUs:
 
(We will keep updating this list as new information comes out)
ASUS ROG Strix B450-F Gaming II
ASUS TUF Gaming B450-Plus II
ASUS TUF Gaming B450M-PRO II
ASUS TUF Gaming B450M-Plus II
ASUS Prime B450M-A II
ASUS Prime B450M-K II

The above II - variants are revision 2 or revised versions of the original boards of the same name may be with a better VRM and memory layout (wait for the official announcements and 3rd party reviews) and these boards will also have BIOS flashback functionality if you ever need to update your BIOS without having CPU installed on it. These boards will have updated BIOS out of the box and will support Ryzen 5000 CPUs out of the box once they (both the board and the CPU) are available for purchase. Since the revised versions will have support, I am pretty sure ASUS will release the same beta BIOS for the for the original boards as well.

MSI:

MSI have already (way back in May) promised that they will provide beta BIOS for all of its B450 and X470 boards to support the upcoming Zen 3 CPUs from AMD. MSI have also provided updated AGESA BIOS v2 1.1.0.x for its select A520, B550 and X570 motherboards.
 
Update 2 (29/11/2020): MSI have released beta BIOS based on AGESA ComboAM4V2 P1 1.1.0.0 for the following boards (list below), which should mean this BIOS should support Renoir and Vermeer CPUs.
 
Update 1: MSI on Friday, 16th October have confirmed that they will provide BIOS updates for all of their B450 and X470 boards. They announced through their blog and we quote: (Source: MSI)
To respond to our user's anticipation, MSI is announcing that all 400 Series motherboards, including X470 and B450, MAX, or non-MAX products, will provide BIOS updates later on that can support Ryzen™ 5000 processors. All the evaluation is in progress under the R&D team. A detailed BIOS release schedule will be announced after the BIOS code is provided by AMD.
 
On top of that MSI have now also released the 3rd revision of the beloved and the best price to performance crown holder in the B450 line-up from all brands the B450 Tomahawk. This third revision of the original B450 Tomahawk is the 2nd revision to the B450 Tomahawk Max and is named B450 Tomahawk Max II.
 
It is to be noted that MSI have already stated that they will provide beta BIOS update to almost all of its boards, and to top it all MSI's B450 Tomahawk Max II should have the updated BIOS out of the box.
 
 
So a TL;DR version for MSI's B450 and X570 list is - all boards will eventually get the beta BIOS by early next year to support next gen CPUs. Almost all of MSI's boards have BIOS flashback functionality so you do not need a last gen CPU to update the BIOS on the boards.


ASRock:

B450:

Update (25/11/2020): ASRock has pulled back the beta BIOS from the product pages. Guess we have to wait a few more days.
 
Update (23/11/2020): ASRock has added support for Ryzen 5000 Series CPUs, for the following B450 motherboards (Source).
  • B450 Pro4
  • B450 Pro4 R2.0
  • B450 Steel Legend
  • B450M Pro4
  • B450M Pro4 R2.0
  • B450M Pro4-F
  • B450M Steel Legend
  • B450M/ac
  • B450M/ac R2.0
  • B450M-VDH

X470:

The following X470 motherboards from ASRock have received BIOS-P4.30 based on AGESA 1.1.0.0C BIOS updates that adds Renoir/Vermeer Support (Thanks to @Komachi_Ensaka):
  • X470 Taichi Ultimate
  • X470 Gaming K4
  • X470 Master SLI
  • X470 Gaming-ITX/ac
 
(Old Content):
ASRock has also confirmed support for next gen CPUs on their 400 Series motherboards, also in the mean-time they have announced Revision 2 variants of a few select B450 boards:
 
ASRock B450M/ac R2.0
ASRock B450M Pro4 R2.0
ASRock B450 Pro4 R2.0

We do not yet know if ASRock will provide the beta BIOS for all of its 400-series boards, but the general consensus is that that should be the case. If in case ASRock announces that only a few of its 400-series boards will support Ryzen 5000 CPUs then we will update the list here.
 

Gigabyte:

Update (08/12/2020): Gigabyte through an official Press release has announced that all of their 400 series motherboards (B450 and X470) have now got updated BIOS versions, F60 and higher, that supports AMD Ryzen 5000 Series CPUs. You can download the BIOS starting 04/12/2020 from the support page of your motherboard.

    1. Let me just check the BIOS version that Gigabyte has released for the board you mentioned and get back to you.

    2. I am afraid Gigabyte have not yet released a BIOS for the board you mentioned. Rest assured, Gigabyte has promised support for Ryzen 5000 on all of its B450 motherboards. Its just a matter time before all boards receive official beta BIOS with support for the latest CPUs. If you can wait, then wait for the beta BIOS.

  2. oh okey, thank you,
    the problem is that i am planning on investing on a mobo on black and the best motherboard for my budget is that one, do you suggest to buy it considering i am plnning on buying a 5000 series cpu later?

    1. 1. Good news, I have just checked Gigabyte's official web page for the board, they have now released the F60c BIOS (with enhanced CPU compatibility) for the board you are inquiring about, which means that the board now supports Ryzen 5000 CPUs with the F60C BIOS update. I mean even if you get the board you need to update the BIOS yourself.

      2. I have again checked the specs sheet of the board, it says that is supports Q-Flash but I do not see a Q-Flash button on the board or any mention of it on the overview page. So if you already have a Ryzen 2000 or 3000 CPU you can use to flash the latest BIOS, but if you don't have one then you need to get hands on one to update the BIOS otherwise its not happening.

      3. Are you getting the board below $70 USD? If yes and you have a way to update the BIOS on the board, then sure go for it.

  3. Great news thank you, to flash the bois i have already seen a tutorial so i think i can handle it, i have a ryzen 5 1600x so i think it will work to flash the bios.
    it is on amazon for 94 dollars for now, when black friday discounts hit i plan on buying it
    thx

    1. Right now the board is not launched in the market. When it does hit the shelves, it will be shipped with the beta BIOS that can support Ryzen 5000 Series CPUs out of the box. Coming to the Tomahawk max, MSI still have not released the beta BIOS for Ryzen 5000 support.

      Delete
    2. All that said MSI have promised support for Ryzen 5000 CPUs on B450 and X470, so they will do it eventually. As for when, we need to keep an eye on the latest BIOS they are releasing for their 400 chipset boards.

    5. I see, they started have started selling the board, the support page lists that the BIOS for this board is 7C02vH0 which is something named by MSI and does not give any information as to which AGESA version this BIOS is. I have contacted MSI support, I will update the info as soon we have any kind of data.
