ASUS confirms that their new A520 budget motherboard series will support Cezanne APUs.

ASUS A520 supports Cezanne

ASUS released a new presentation for its TUF A520 entry-level motherboard with planned platform support. It confirms that the 500-series will support Renoir (Ryzen 4000G), Cezanne (Ryzen 5000G), and Vermeer (Ryzen 4000/5000).

AMD Vermeer and AMD Cezanne are both expected to feature Zen3 architecture. The desktop processor series is expected later this year with Cezanne following the next year.

ASUS 400-series, no Renoir and Zen3 support?

Interestingly the slide does not confirm that ASUS will support Zen3 processors on B450 and X470 motherboards. A wide-spread criticism of AMD’s decision to abandon the 400-series platform for Zen3 processors has made AMD change this decision. The company did confirm that Zen3 support will require special BIOS which will be provided to its board partners. Apparently, ASUS does not plan to provide such support.

AMD has not yet confirmed any plans to release next-generation 600-series motherboards. It is possible that the series will not release on AM4 socket, but with AM5 socket instead.
