Ryzen 3 APU isn't compatible?

Whatever motherboard I put together with the new Raven Ridge Ryzen APUs it says "Some AMD A320 chipset motherboards may need a BIOS update prior to using Raven Ridge CPUs. Upgrading the BIOS may require a different CPU that is supported by older BIOS revisions."

Is this incorrect?

Edit: It is not. I just checked. No Ryzen GPUs for me then :(

There are motherboards that don't need a cpu to flash an updated bios. But if you can't get one of those then AMD will send you a boot kit so you can update to a recent bios.

Woah! A thousand thanks, I would have never found this out on my own.

If only they let you keep it. I could just get a video card and be set!

Well the cpu they send you is literally the worst cpu you can possibly get on the AM4 platform and is total garbage and nobody buys them. But they work for boot kits.

The A6 9500. Its a dual core Bristol Ridge chip. In 2018 it is crappy.
