Upgrade from ryzen3 2200g to ryzen7 3700x

Hi,

So I want to do an upgrade in few days. I didn't pay much attention to third gen ryzens and if they are compatible with my motherboard Gigabyte B450M DS3H Micro ATX AM4.

It looks like ryzen7 3700x is compatible. However I remember watching some video (I think it was linus), where before the launch AMD said that you might probably need some next-gen motherboard to be able to use 3rd gen ryzens, even though the socket is the same (or maybe it was about Threadrippers, this is just a vague memory I have).

I can't find that vid now and I don't see anything about it on the internet. So I just want to double check with you guys.

Can I just do an upgrade from ryzen 2nd gen to 3rd gen without any issues?

do a bios update on your motherboard to the bios nesecary for 3rd gen ryzen and you should be good

BIOS update, 3rd gen ryzen will work on the AM4 socket, but 3rd gen threadripper (i want that in 2024) will only work on trx4 socket, not on tr4, that's for 1st and 2nd gen threadripper

As other mentioned, with an BIOS update.

Compatible via BIOS update. Keep in mind, it is an entry level board and may run a little hot and may compromise boost clocks from reaching rated speeds. Then again the 3700X is rated at 65W hence no major concerns other than pre-applied voltage overrides which can get a little on the heavy side (something manual tweaks can easily address).
