Hi HP Community,
I have a HP Pavilion Power 580-130 with the Basswood Motherboard, a Ryzen 5 1400 and a AMD RX 580. The product specification page notes that the processor can be upgraded to the Ryzen 5 1600, or Ryzen 7 1700, as these are supported by the motherboard.
Would I need to update my bios before upgrading? If so, which bios update do I need?
Also, is there anything else I should take into consideration before making the upgrade?
For reference - i'm thinking of going with the Ryzen 5 1600 processor.
Thanks in advanced for the guidance!

I do not think you will need to update your BIOS but here it is.
Both CPU's are a 100% upgrade.
Same Wattage and Stepping.
