I'm new to the AM4 platform and was surprised to find out this is not supported on the new B550 boards. Internet rumours however suggest it may work, depending on particular board models.
At this price, it is almost worth finding by myself.

If you go to the mobo manufacturers site they usually list the CPUs that are tested and therefore recommended. Taking the BIOS flash fiasco for example, its worth checking beforehand. Having said that ive yet to experience any problems with Ryzen builds
I believe it's an issue to do with the BIOS memory space available (due to cost of the chips). The AM4 lineup has expanded to the point not all BIOS memory chips can hold the code for all CPUs, so some may be dropped. More expensive boards, such as those with higher end chipsets like B550/X570, tend to have bigger memory chips. So it depends on whether the board has a big enough BIOS memory (manufacturer dependent) or if the manufacturer has provided a BIOS that allows support for your chips but at the loss of others.
It is not a board manufacturer issue, AMD website explicitly states 3200G and 3400G are not supported on B550. Indeed, these processors are not listed as supported on any of the B550 boards I looked at.
This is a great little CPU. The Vega8 graphics can play games surprisingly well @ 1080P with a mixture of low-to-medium settings. I use a 3200G within an Asrock A300 Deskmini, and cannot fault it.
I'm wanting to make a little game server box alongside Plex and a file server, is something like this good enough, or would picking up a Athlon 3000G to get it running and swapping it for a more meaty 4650G (whatever the consumer version is) when it's available make more sense? These seem expensive to me with the old Zen+ cores and low thread count Vs the 3100 :/
My bad. Was a 3200g

I think it's because the 3200G & 3400G are actually 2nd gen architecture even though the model number makes them appear to be 3rd gen. Similarly the latop 4xxx series chips are only 3rd gen. They have made things a bit confusing.
Great cpu, horrid company to deal with.

That was the initial plan for my Deskmini A300 but Asrock have neither confirmed not denied support for Renoir APUs (although there are some beta BIOSes running around supporting them). The new X300 is not yet available. 4750GE would be my option, though.
Says £80.99 for me? Code appears to be for free P&P?
