Can RX 570 work on a legacy Bios based motherboard?

Jump to solution

So the title was self-explanatory but still here is the question that I have,

Can RX 570 work on a legacy Bios based motherboard for example the motherboard from MSI that I have is very old and I wanted to upgrade GPU so can anyone please tell me if RX 570 can work on legacy BIOS or more specifically on MSI H55M-E21 ?

Thanks in advance.

its a PCIe 2.0 board - but a RX570 should work
but watch ebay etc for cheap RX580 - currently they go for about 100€

PC: R7 2700X @4.1GHz + RX 580 4G (1500MHz/2000MHz CL16) + 32G DDR4-3200CL14 + 144hz 1ms FS P + 75hz 1ms FS
Laptop: R5 2500U @30W + RX 560X (1400MHz/1500MHz) + 16G DDR4-2400CL16 + 120Hz 3ms FS

Can you be sure that it will work on a non UEFI motherboard?

i dont know where the problem would be - PCIe 2.0 is a standard and the RX570 obeys those

PC: R7 2700X @4.1GHz + RX 580 4G (1500MHz/2000MHz CL16) + 32G DDR4-3200CL14 + 144hz 1ms FS P + 75hz 1ms FS

I have purchased an Asus Rog Strix RX 570 let's hope it will work on this motherboard, it would take 2 to 3 days to get the shipment.

Thanks but I don't have enough budget for RX 580 plus ebay doesn't work as it should be in India.

i have intel DP67BG with latest bios.

Now intel does not make motherboards.

i have corsair CX500 PSU.

Yes.i get output till BIOS, but my system gets stuck at POST.i tried force booting, CMOS clear ,PSU change,BIOS recovery 

etc etc.....nothing works

I think it is compatibility issue.

I am upgrading the entire system.So, i will have to wait for other components to arrive.
