In preparation for AMD’s Ryzen 7000 series processors, which will be launched on September 27, ASRock announced that it has developed a new BIOS for its AM5 motherboards. ASRock states that its new firmware was designed to reduce boot times on its motherboards.

With every new platform, chipset and processor launch, firmware is one of the focal points surrounding motherboards. Over the past two years, major vendors such as ASUS, GIGABYTE, and MSI have maintained consistency in their firmware whether the card is designed for AMD or Intel. ASRock has announced that it has developed a new BIOS specifically for its AM5 motherboards, which are designed to support the upcoming AMD Ryzen 7000 series Zen 4 processors based on TSMC’s 5nm process node.
