Question Does the GIGABYTE B450M S2H motherboard support my AMD A8-9600?

Mar 30, 2020
Hi, guys so I want to buy a new motherboard because the old one's BIOS got corrupted. I choose the GIGABYTE AMD B450M S2H motherboard. But when I looked at the CPU support list I couldn't find my CPU. I mean the socket type's match and there's no TDP issue but I don't know if I should take the risk. What should I do?
CPU:AMD A8-9600 Quad-Core 3.1GHz
If you are going to replace your motherboard, regardless, I think I would also consider replacing your processor which is very weak by todays standards.
Makes no sense to me to spend money on an obsolete platform.


The A8-9600 is a 2 core, 4 thread APU (or 2 modules, 4 FPUs as was described on the Bristol Ridge APUs).

Even an Athlon 3000G (2 core, 4 thread) will easily outperform it, and have better integrated graphics, too. They're available for about $65-ish from NewEgg and Amazon (though the release price was $49.99 if I recall).

If you're located near a MicroCenter, it can be had for $49.99, in-store only. Of course, you can also look for a Ryzen 3 2200g, Ryzen 3 3200g, Ryzen 5 2400g, or Ryzen 5 3400g.

I am assuming you're using integrated graphics, and don't have a separate graphics card.
