AMD promised B450 and X470 motherboard owners that they would get support for Zen 3 based Ryzen 5000 series CPUs — but you might not have caught the part where there would be a 2+ month wait during the holiday season when many owners would be looking to upgrade. I talked to AMD, ASUS, Gigabyte and MSI to see what 400-series motherboard owners should expect if they want to upgrade to a 5600X, 5800X, 5900X or 5950X when they launch on Nov. 5th.
