    For me, higher resolutions tend to impact my ability to concentrate; I just find there being too much detail to be able to have an enjoyable experience. I suspect that I'm not the only one.

    New BIOS has just come out for my B350 board, so fairly hopeful:

    Version 46022019/04/0410.15 MBytes

    PRIME B350-PLUS BIOS 4602
    Update AGESA 0072 for the upcoming processors.
    ASUS strongly recommends that you update AMD chipset driver 18.50.16 or later before updating BIOS.

    Asrock B450 Pro 4 was upto AGESA 1.0.0.6 in December last year, a new BIOS just came out with support for Athlon 2xxGE APU - but does not seem to include anything else beyond the APU support yet

    Maybe the resolution is a bit too high for you too. :p
    Movies in particular seem to cause me headaches from how the extra detail makes images seem more unnatural.

    Good job real life is extremely low res or you would be in constant bother.

    I see black/grey pixels through my left eye, and RGB pixels through my right eye. :)
    The thing with real life is that depth perception is that much more "realistic" than anything you see on a screen/monitor, which is primarily the problem with higher resolutions; there's an attempt to make everything you see appear to be in focus, and that's what makes it hard to concentrate.

    AMD has a board partner meeting on the 23rd of April. Fingers crossed we get some more information. :)

    Stupid speculation idea:

    The "chipset problems" related to Zen 2 compatibility with older boards (and the poopstorm that would come with breaking the "compatible with all AM4 sockets until Zen3 at the earliest" promise).
    The issue has been solved with the "update drivers first, THEN flash bios" method suggested and AMD are now back on a slightly sooner reveal/launch cycle.

    ;)

    My guess is Ryzen 3000's and boards will do a paper launch at Computex, that gives them a month to get the hype train up to full steam.

    Or to slow it down to set expectations in case they don’t hit that magic 5....

    12C/24T @4.5GHz would be much more than enough.

    Even if it's sub 5GHz out of the box, manual OC and an after market cooler might get it over the line.

    If these chips don't do a good all core overclock and at least match the 9900k in gaming for the 12 and 16 core I'll personally be disappointed.
