The AMD you can upgrade later on. Can you upgrade the cpu to a 12 or 16 core cpu later?

Why would anyone need a "firmware" update to make a CPU work w/o issues?

I think the problem relied on the end-user, not the hardware................to begin with.
XMP works when you have a reliable board........and Z590 is the "last" gen, not Z490.
Actually, its an open secret right now that 11 series Intel suffer on 400 series motherboards.

10 series actually works slightly better on 500 series boards. and if you get the latest bios updates, the 11 series is pretty solid, now, on 500 series boards.
