I have a AMD Ryzen 7 2700 CPU and a Gigabyte B450 D3SH motherboard with AM4 socket. Will it support Ryzen 9 3800 processor?

I don't think that all of the motherboards that support 2nd gen chips will be able to support 3rd gen chips unless the motherboard manufacturer will update the bios or something.

It will almost certainly support next gen cpus, with a bios update, but may or may not support pcie gen 4.0, a new adition to the new chipset. Pcie 4.0 is entirely unnecesarry though, and any gpu will be fully compatible with your pcie 3.0 motherboard.

Could be wrong but seems like bios updates are already available going by Agesa code.

ASUS and MSI began rolling out BIOS updates with AGESA-Combo 0.0.7.x microcode
Checked an Asus board, support for new Ryzen cpus Agesa micro code 0070

Gigabyte F30 Agesa 0072
