What About 400-Series Motherboards?

We understand that this is a very important question to many people and sadly, at the time of writing, ASRock has yet to make any definite statement regarding their X470 or B450 motherboards. With rumors suggesting that compatibility will arrive around January 2021, however, fingers crossed, you will be able to make the upgrade without the requirement of getting a new motherboard. Again though, fingers crossed!
