Although the XPG brand has announced in its latest computer speculation that the new Ryzen 4000 will be compatible with the B450 chipset, AMD's statement has just given up all hope for the bulk of users.
As we already know, the AM4 as a socket will get rid of this by 2020 with the introduction of Zen 3 and newer systems, but of course we can definitely agree on the current chipsets.
The future of the AM4 and Zen 3 socket: limited to only two chipsets
The biggest change that Zen 3 will make will push AMD to restrict support for its chipsets, as is the case with the current Ryzen 3000. The problem is that the limit is now exacerbated.
AMD has taken months to alleviate all problems with its 3000 series through its AGESA microcodes and seems to not want to repeat the error and will leave nothing more than one and less than 5 chipsets: X370, B350, A320, X470 and B450.
Therefore, the full consensus of users who love so much is gone and the company will only support Zen 3 for new users. X570 and B550.
The problem with wanting to keep up with AMD is in the BIOS
This logically won't be the case, and 600 new chipsets of the series will join the X570 and B550 only on Zen 3. As soon as it is proposed that Intel with the LGA 1700 socket will give life three generations of new CPUs, AMD follows the opposite post-ending approach to the AM4 socket, yes, it has been around for many years.
Not surprisingly, Zen 4 promises to be modified as a build and will certainly require a large number of pins to be able to use a large number of PCIe lines among other data, something that Intel has not understood in the long run and that AMD users now have to deal with from 2021.
