A320 series anakardollarsar focuses primarily on budget and entry-level users and mostly comes in the mATX form factor. Older generation motherboards were generally preferred with non-“X” AMD CPUs and processor support was limited.

It looks like Gigabyte has quietly started rolling out support for AMD’s Ryzen 5000 (Zen 3) and Ryzen 4000 (Zen 2) processors on older A320 motherboards. The manufacturer has now released the new AGESA 1. 2.0 0.3 B BIOS software for the new motherboard model such as GA-A320M-H and GA-A320M-S2H.

All three revisions of each motherboard gained support for Zen 3 architecture processors, including the flagship Ryzen 9 5950X. If you want to update to new BIOS versions, you can use the links below:

  • GA-A320M-H (rev. 1. x
  • GA-A320M-H (rev. 2.0)
  • GA-A320M-H (rev. 3. x)
  • GA-A320M-S2H (rev. 1. x)
  • GA-A320M-S2H (rev. 2.0)
  • GA-A320M-S2H (rev. 3. x)

While this is good news for owners of older generation motherboards, we do not recommend installing high-end processors such as the Ryzen 9 5950X due to insufficient power delivery systems for older generation and entry-level motherboards. Because these platforms are not designed with high-core chips in mind, 16- and 12-core CPUs may show instability.
