AMD CMOS Update Failure Scandal Ryzen 2xxx Generation with B350 Mainboards.
This should be a standard for all mainboards and not to forget the good old Hardware Bios Write Protection Switch.
Such failures like with the B350 Boards and outdated BIOS and non-functioning of Ryzen 2xxx CPUs is simply a disaster, that AMD should be held accountable for.
No, not giving people the advice of sending them old CPUs to update the Bios for a new CPU, what a unnecessary hassle and complexity for such a simple problem!!!
It should be mandatory for all Mainboard Manufacturers/Creators to install such a function that is currently
only available for 250/300/400/500 Euro/$$$ Mainboards!
And remember CMOS EEProms should be mandatory if you don´´t offer such a genius feature!!! That customers can quickly change and update a BIOS, all else is audacious, defective and intolerable in 2018!!!
“USB BIOS Flashback
Update your BIOS without even needing a CPU!
Since it’s first introduction on the Rampage III Series motherboards, USB BIOS Flashback has become the simplest and most fail-safe method of (UEFI) BIOS updating possible. Simply drop the (UEFI) BIOS file onto a FAT32 formatted USB stick, plug it into the USB BIOS Flashback port and press the Flashback button next to it. No CPU or memory install is needed, only the ATX power connector is required.”
