Thanks you OP. Bought one.
FYI; order generates two Newegg orders, but they charge correct amount.

I'm hoping I don't have any issues with MSI motherboard needing to get bios updated to accept 3400G

Wow, this is an excellent price. It costs the same as a 2400g at this price.

4 cores / 8 threads were the go to for gaming afew years ago, I'd bet it still performs well.

What MBs consistently work with the 3400g without having to a bios update with an older chip?

I have an ASRock x570m pro 4 that I plugged my 3600x directly into no bios update. Pretty sure need none for the whole 3000 series and a matx board to boot.

fyi 3400g aren't on the same generation as 3600/3700/3800 etc.

3200g & 3400g is on zen+ while the rest are on zen 2. 32000g/3400g will work well with b450/x470 boards.

EDIT:
you might need to flash new bios on b450/x470 boards to run 3200g/3400g. x570 boards will work out of factory but they aren't the best match with a 3400g in terms of value. Look for boards that says zen 2 ready to make sure you don't get compatibility issues.

Ahh..yeah..3400g is Picasso vs matisse(sp?). The x570 board will still run though not sure worth the extra cost..

If your mobo is not a x570 then you will need to update bios. If you have a x470 or lower mobo that is. If your new to ryzen like me then you need an older ryzen cpu to update the bios before putting in this one. It would've taken at least a week for a loner bootable cpu from amd to arrive. I ended up buying Amazon and returning it. Good luck!

not quite, it depends on the build date of the motherboard. Older stock may still need an update - but 4xx motherboards built in 2019 will have a bios that's compatible out of the box.
worst case AMD has a loaner program - and it's not the end of the world.

What mobos other then the x570 and the MAX version of the 3/4 series don't need bios updated?
