AMD offers free Ryzen APU so owners can flash their firmware

AMD offers a free 'boot kit' so that Ryzen APU owners can get their systems up and running

There are some new AMD Ryzen APU owners that can't get their new Vega-powered APUs working in their socket AM4 motherboards, as they need a motherboard firmware update.




But how do you do that if your new Ryzen 5 2200/2400G processor doesn't work in your existing AM4 motherboard? This is where AMD is offering Ryzen APU owners a free "boot kit" that will help flash your firmware, with the kit including a dual-core A6 9500 APU from AMD.


AMD will send users the CPU but will require it back, something that will get you up and running. Pretty damn awesome of AMD to do that, so high-five to Team Red!
