AMD will supply Ryzen 2nd Gen users with Boot Kits to update their BIOS

These kits will allow users of incompatible AM4 motherboards to update to a supported BIOS version.



Read more about AMD's plans to supply Ryzen 2nd Generation users with "boot kits" if they require a BIOS update.

Hm, what would happen if I'd decide to get the "boot kit" processor and just not return it ? Obviously not gonna do it, but wondering what will make people return the processor.

They take a payment from you first, then refund it when you return the CPU. That's how I understand it, any way.

I imagine that it works a lot like accelerated RMA processes, like what I have seen with hard drives in the past.

They take credit card details and pre-plan a payment and cancel it when they receive the RMA'd product and test it. This way they can send a replacement hard drive immediately and change users to then don't send back their faulty product.

In this case, AMD will charge users for the CPU (Likely a Bristol Ridge product) if they don't get it back.
