So my plan is to purchase a Ryzen 5 5600x as soon as they come in stock. In the meantime I wanted to buy my motherboard while I am waiting, I was going to purchase the Asrock b550 phantom gaming 4. Will I need another CPU to update the bios before putting in the 5600x? Or should it work out of the box?
@okbuddy is correct, there aren't any new motherboards expected to be released alongside the 5000 series. I would opt for a B550 board that has a BIOS Flashback feature - that allows you to update the BIOS using just a USB flash drive, no CPU, GPU, or RAM required.
