Between the Asus TUF Gaming x570 Wifi or the MSI Gaming Pro Carbon AC B450.

I like the Intel LAN and the Audio better on the MSI, but I'm wondering about the BIOS issues and if that is applying to that board.

The Asus TUF x570 and 3600x will be about $50-60CAD more than getting the MSI and 3600x.

For those that know more about both boards, give me your thoughts on which board you would choose and why, also how much better or worse are the audio and LAN for both boards?

X570 because it will be compatible out of the box,
I had hoped that if I were to purchase a brand new MSI pro carbon 450 now it would could with the latest bios already flashed by the manufacturer? Is this not a realistic hope? Surely the new stock should be already flashed to the latest version needed?

My B450 Pro carbon works great with 3600x. Bios update takes about 2 minutes with bios flashback button and usb key. New bios was released today actually. Shop would probably update it for you for free if bought from a retailer

That wouldn’t include Amazon though right?
