Maybe I'm being overly cautious here, but can I skip in-between BIOS versions and just update to the latest? My currently installed version is 1.10 and available newer versions are 1.20, 1.50, 1.60, 1.80, 2.00, and 2.10. OK to cut straight to v2.10?

I have an Asrock B550 Phantom Gaming-ITX/ax, Ryzen 5 3600, 2x8GB Corsair Vengeance LPX DDR4 3000, WD Black SN750 NVMe M.2 2280 1TB, Gigabyte GTX 970 Gaming OC, Corsair SF600 PSU, Win10 Pro 64 Bit.

Depends on the motherboard.

Sometimes the inbetween versions are required before the later ones.

From the support page, it does not seem to be the case for your particular motherboard

But do read the instructions carefully, and do it exactly how it states.

OK, thanks for the quick replies! I didn't see any release notes in the zip file I downloaded - it's literally just the BIOS file. On the BIOS D/L page there are links to instructions for BIOS install, but it seems to show generic instructions and no mention of requiring in-between updates. Will proceed straight to v2.10
