Ryzen 9 5950X hits 5GHz on a cheap old A320 card

TechEpiphany has decided to install AMD's Ryzen 9 5950X processor on one of the cheapest A320 chipset motherboards on the market: ASUS A320M-K. Thanks to the new official support for the Ryzen 5000 series on select A320 motherboards, the flagship Ryzen 9 5950X CPU appears to be perfectly at ease, reaching a peak frequency of 5GHz thanks to the enablement of PBO. However, less expensive products have modest power subsystems that may not bea> able to handle the power demands of a high-end chip, such as the Ryzen 9 5950X.

More specifically, the name of the BIOS that contains the new AGESA code is version 5862, and it came out in November last year. The patch notes indicate that the updated AGESA code adds support for the new processors and completely abandons support for the Bristol Ridge 7th Gen A-series and Athlon X4 series CPUs. For some reason, this phenomenon is only happening on A320 chipset motherboards for the moment, as manufacturers have not enabled Ryzen 5000 support on chipsets like B350 and X370.

There are several potential problems, including IRM definitions and VRM capabilities. Additionally, AMD noted that the 300 series motherboards lack support for its engineering validation coverage matrix. As a result, AMD does not test the 300 series cards when producing a new AGESA code to send to companies and, therefore, all system stability rests solely with the manufacturers.

Because of this, we recommend that you use caution when taking advantage of Ryzen 5000 series support on A320, as there is a greater chance of bugs occurring. Most A320 motherboards have much weaker power configurations than those with B350 and X370 chipsets (not to mention the 500 series) and running a Ryzen 9 5950X at its maximum power could be dangerous.
