Hey guys... Do you think older motherboards like my AB350 PRO4 will support Ryzen 3000 CPU's?

Only A320 are not getting Zen 2 support. Or at least the is the infocthus far.

That is ASRock's official info on Ryzen 3000 updates. The a320 chipset will only support upcoming 3000 series APUs which are technically second gen parts in the same way the 2000 series APUs are first gen based.

All other boards listed will get full Ryzen 3000 support.

It's worth noting, after seeing Computex 2019 footage on the X570 lineup (all manufacturers) that it looks unlikely PCIe Gen 4 will be supported on first and second gen boards. This is not in any way official, just my own speculation but if every board released on the X570 chipset has active cooling on the chipset to facilitate PCIe 4.0 transfer speeds and heat dissipation then it stands to reason that the passively cooled X470 and below boards will not likely be able to handle the data throughput and additional heat generation. There has also been mention of the actual circuitry needing to meet standards.

Regardless, it shouldn't be an issue for most users as currently the only devices even able to benefit from the new standard are storage devices. It will be quite some time before GPUs even come close to seeing a benefit. The only benefit I could possibly see to a GPU is in multi GPU setups, Nvidia could for example lower the PCIe lane requirement from x8 PCIe 3.0 to x4 PCIe 4.0 and allow SLI on lower end boards. Knowing Nvidia however, I doubt they will do so.

PCIe 4.0 should be possible on slot 1 if the PCB tracing allows it, and if mobo manufacturers decide to update BIOS.

1st slot is directly hooked up with the CPU AFAIK.

Bios 5.80 out now. Supports Ryzen next gen, and also brings AGESA Combo-AM4 1.0.0.1. I've actually updated from 5.40 to 5.80 right now, as I do plan to buy one of Ryzen 3000 series CPU's when they're out. So far, seems to be working just fine on my Ryzen 3 1200 (yeah, first gen ryzen here). I've have it OC'ed at 4000 GHz, and it's working just fine, been playing DOOM for about 2 hours, no freezes or anything strange. Anyway, there are more OC options with this bios than with previous one's (don't know about 5.70, haven't tried it).
