In this part list that I am brainstorming I am warned that the BIOS might need to be updated first in order to use the Ryzen 5 3400G CPU.
I've searched on the manufacturer website and indeed the BIOS version F40 is needed. Given that I can't know if Amazon will ship a newer or older board I can't tell if I will receive an updated mobo or not.
I am googling around with mixed general results that some motherboards are actually capable of updating the BIOS without any component installed via USB but I can't pinpoint if this specific board can do that.
Does anyone know where to look for this info? Since I do not own any other compatible CPU that I could use to boot up and update the BIOS this could really be a dealbreaker on the purchase.
