We already have for sale the new AMD Ryzen APU worldwide, as we saw in its presentation a few weeks ago we have two variants of these new Chips, the powerful Ryzen 5 2400G Quad core with eight threads and the simpler model Ryzen 3 2200G Quad core with four threads. Two products that feature the powerful AMD Vega GPU that can be enough to play 3D games at 1080p without the need for a dedicated graphics card, all with a maximum consumption of 65W TPD.

In addition those new APUs, we have new BIOS updates for ASRock and ASUS motherboards with AMD AM1 sockets compatible with AMD Ryzen APUs. Those BIOS that have suffered several delays to accommodate the new safety measures due to the Specter and Meltdown security holes. These early versions of the BIOS are usually quite premature and will surely improve quickly to perform a better support the new Ryzen APUs.

From the ASRock website we have a specific page to download the new BIOS, we have to check if our license plate comes out among the supported models although as we can see we have many models.
