No. First gen ryzen ie 1xxx series are generally not supported by X570 boards.

OK, none of the boards I know of support a 1xxx processor. If you want support for that processor, you need either a 470 or 370 board. You first need to know what motherboard you want then you check the support page for that board.

OK, you are not understanding. You need to check to specific motherboard support page for compatibility. As I said, I do not know of ANY X570 board that will support a 1xxx chip.

I see. thats probably the reason why it doesn't show up in pcpartpicker's list.
Thanks for clearing things up. I almost bought it, It looks quite good but I am trying to build in a mobo that would be somewhat future proof for a couple of years.

I would like to ask what motherboard you could recommend that would support the upcoming 4000 series components? From what I know, The x570 is the only safe choice right now.

It is unknown at this time however my guess is that X470 and X570 boards will support 4gen ryzen. You will of course need a bios update in order to run a 4gen processor. A lot of the high end boards have what is called bios flashback; you do not need a processor to even be installed to flash the bios. Note this is only on the higher end boards.

Thanks. I already bought an asus x570-p motherboard. If I have not asked first I would have requested another item return. I would probably stick with 2600 right now or the 3400g. Thanks again.

You need to check the individual support page. For a 2xxx processor, generally no you would not need any bios update. For a 3xxx probably not however IF a processor was released after the motherboard was mfg, then you might need an update.

Just as an example, the board you listed supports a R9 3900 from bios 1201 and onward only. If the board has an earlier bios, then you would need to flash to a later bios IF you wanted a 3900.
