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.
On the ASUS side we also have a specific website to download and install the updated BIOS for the new AMD Ryzen 2000 series APU, as we see we have a good number of models.
