Hi all

Bought a Ryzen 1700 off MM and now looking for a board, i don't have any Gen 4 components so feel a B450 board is the right choice, however will I have more benefits for X570 or B550 and will 1st gen run off either of those boards?

Also, are there talks of a new socket for AMD in the next year or so? if so that may help my choice.

Cheers

I think there’s some confusion. Most B450 boards, when the BIOS is upgraded for Ryzen 5000 series, will LOSE compatibility with Ryzen 1000 series chips. Most X570 boards don’t have this limitation due to the larger sized BIOS chips.
