AMD CPUs Compatible with X570 Motherboard – Not All Are Supported (Updated)

Share this:

Back in 2019, AMD announced its latest Ryzen 3000 CPUs and X570 Chipset. Many were excited to upgrade to the new CPU and platform. Fast forward today, AMD has announced its Ryzen 5000 series CPUs, including the newer Ryzen 7 5800X3D, along with a few new Ryzen 5000 CPUs and Ryzen 4000 refreshed CPUs. The X570 platform is nearing its end, with the upcoming Zen4 platform slated towards the end of the year. Although the X570 platform will no longer support the next-gen Zen4 CPUs, it’s compatible with several generations of Ryzen processors. Let’s find out what AMD CPUs are compatible with the latest X570 motherboards, and which are backward compatible.

AMD Processors Compatible with X570 Motherboard Chipset

AMD released a table showing which AMD Ryzen processor is compatible with the X570 motherboard. Based on the new table above, 1st gen AMD Ryzen CPUs, including the ones with Radeon Graphics, are not compatible with X570 motherboards. For example, you can’t use a Ryzen 7 1700X on any X570 motherboards. The X570 motherboard only supports AMD Ryzen 5000, 3000, 4000, and some 2000 series CPUs that don’t have Radeon Graphics.

Aside from motherboard compatibility, AMD recently announced it is extending support for Ryzen 5000 Series processors on AMD 300 Series chipsets, including all the new recently announced desktop processors. The AMD Ryzen 5000 series CPUs will be supported on AMD X370, B350, and A320 chipsets as well. Expect selective BETA BIOS updates to become available in April.

You can learn more about the new Ryzen 7 5800X3D here, the older Zen 3 Ryzen 5000 CPUs here, and the flagship Ryzen 9 5950X here.

Below is a list of the new Ryzen 5000 and 4000 series processors, including some older Ryzen 5000 (flagship) CPUs.

A PC enthusiast and a gamer, and my eyes eat frames for breakfast, I guess. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
