If memory serves, the BIOS ROM chips used in the socketed setup were discontinued
and there were no longer any reliable suppliers. When I looked into it you could
still purchase them but only in small consignments (less than 1000). The older
ROMs were also supposedly slower by comparison to the newer ones. Now that was the
standard capacity of the time, larger capacity variants are still readily available
as far as I know.

Even with the flashback issue, I still stand by ASRock. They have their ups and
downs but the guys behind the designs and manufacturing really do try hard to
meet the demands of their consumers. Time and again I see people complain about
something here on the forums (and likely support tickets too) only to see the
problem addressed/improved on the next board iteration. The fact that I can send
a support ticket on a 12 year old ASRock board and still get a helpful reply is
the other main reason I use their products. Another brand replied and told me
I should upgrade my system (I test support channels like this regularly). That
is not something someone still stuck with a 10 year old board needs or wants to
be told.

Here's hoping ASRock pay attention the the flashback issue and address that in
upcoming board models too.

last week a b450m pro4 board turned up with latest 5xxx bios flashed
somewhere down the supply chain
as it has a sticker on retail box and the factory sticker on the bios chip itself removed (not really ideal as you cant tell what bios unless its now booted , but hey at least someone flashed it ) shame they didnt just write new bios with a sharpie on the old sticker


Do you have more details on the motherboard flashed with latest BIOS? Was this at a retail store? I am in a bit of a tight spot as want to buy a 5700G APU in August but don't have a spare cpu around, as I'm all Intel right now. I am trying to do what I can to ensure I'm getting a board that's flashed upfront and I don't want to buy a super expensive one, just a B550M Pro4 or Steel Legend.
