Gigabyte’s BIOS Update Hints at AMD Ryzen 9000 Series Desktop CPUs

Gigabyte’s latest BIOS update suggests the imminent arrival of AMD’s next-gen Ryzen CPUs, likely dubbed the Ryzen 9000 Series, signaling a leap forward from the 8000 series relegated to laptops.

Gigabyte’s release of AGESA 1.1.7.0 beta bios hints at AMD Ryzen 9000 series processors support on AM5 X670, B650, A620 motherboards, alongside current Ryzen 7000 and 8000 series processors.

Ryzen 9000, codenamed “Granite Ridge,” boasts the Zen5 architecture while maintaining compatibility with existing AM5 chipsets and motherboards.

Confusion arises with AMD’s upcoming Strix Point announcement, anticipated in June, expected to unveil the next-gen Ryzen Mobile CPU series, distinct from desktop CPUs. However, Gigabyte’s apparent slip-up hints at a possible Ryzen 9000 Series reveal at Computex.

Gigabyte’s track record includes previous premature revelations, reminiscent of last year’s inadvertent disclosure of the RTX 4070 and 4060.
