Nice, I shouldn't need a new motherboard for the new AMD Ryzen 3rd gen CPUs

My motherboard is on this list. List of MSI boards that’ll work with the new CPUs. I have the B350 TOMAHAWK.

And there’s a beta bios with support. There wasn’t when I checked earlier. Except, it says the release date was the 21st. Guess they didn’t update their site yet.

The new CPUs come out next month. The $500 12 core 24 thread, should work with my cooler, think what I read said 105 watts, that’s what the 2700X uses, and that’s compatible with my cooler. I won’t buy a new cooler, or use the one it might come with. I like mine.

Yup, 105 watts, according to AMD. The 3700X uses less power then my current CPU. But I want more threads, that should give 4k encoding a boost.

Will the new GPUs support h.265 4k encoding? And will HandBrake add support?

That’s easier then replacing the CPU. I can do that with the case standing up. Unplugging everything is a pain. There’s a shitload of stuff plugged into it.

Note: 
MSI do not recommend updating the BIOS unless it is necessary
Do not update the BIOS when using the cpu listed below.
A8-9600/A6-9500E/A6-9500/A12-9800E/A12-9800/A10-9700E/A10-9700970

On the bios update. Mine is a 1700. First gen with the lovely Linux all thread compiling bug.

I’ll only update my bios if I get a new CPU.

They come out in July.

Intel, would of forced you to buy a new motherboard by now.

Will the GPUs support virtualization? So you don’t have to passthrough the card? Not really needed anymore, doesn’t work in Linux, not worth touching with a 100 foot pole.
