saved BIOS profiles compatible after update?

I'm thinking of giving a new BIOS a try - one that's four or five generations more current - and I want to preserve my settings. I know (the hard way) that profiles saved to my BIOS's chip are wiped by a flash, but let's say I save a v2605 profile to a USB stick - would I be able to load it up in BIOS v3003?

For the record, it's a ROG Strix B450 - I don't know whether this kind of thing would vary between manufacturers, I'm just curious as to whether anybody has done it in the past.

If it's a "no", I guess I'll just have to bite the bullet, take a load of pics on my phone, and key them all in manually.

Cheers,

9I.

My experience with the profiles is they break almost always when using profile from earlier bios. pics with phone then try using the saved profile, worst case it wont work but you may get lucky.

Given the number of AGESA updates between my current BIOS and the latest one, I'd probably be better off doing a completely new OC. Chances are I'll end up with something better, and it's not as though I've anything else to do at the moment...
