    Glad to see the change of heart regarding bios support. I really didn't want to have to buy a new CPU+Mobo+GPU+(probably) RAM all at once again. At least this way I can stagger the purchases over a few months to ease my wallet's pain.

    AMD/Asus didn't want 5000 on 470 boards because they knew there were headaches involved (PCIe 4.0 involves hardware changes you cant just code around). Then AMD/Asus bowed to pressure. 470 owners will get a janky beta update in winter 2021. It will suck and then no more quality updates. Save aggravation and get a 550/570. Sell 470s while there's still a market for them imo

    Looks more a profit decision and period.

    Still waiting.

    OK - now it's April, 2021, and I still can't run a Zen 3 processor on my Crosshair VII Hero. Can someone from Asus please provide an update?

    You need to update the bios in order to use a Ryzen 5000 series.

    See here:

    At least AMD AGESA v1.1.8.0 is required. And the latest bios I see available is Version 4301, released on 2021/03/29. This contains AMD AGESA V2 PI Therefore there is support for the 5000 series
