AMD is sensitive to that issue, and they are working with chipset and motherboard manufacturers to put an end to it. With a new technology dubbed “SafeBoot”, AMD is looking to offer a generic set of instructions on all CPUs and chipsets that will ignore the CPUs microcode, allowing any motherboard to boot and the BIOS be flashed if the board does not yet support that chip. While no release date or supported CPUs/chipsets are available yet, should AMD manage to get this on all their future products it will be a huge benefit to both companies producing PCs and the individual customer buying boxes off the shelves.
