Using upcoming 2nd Generation Ryzen CPU to update B350 motherboard BIOS?

Hey there everyone!

So I recently bought an Asus Strix B350-F in order to use it with the upcoming 2nd Generation Ryzen 7 CPU.
The problem is, I didn't think it through, and I need to update the BIOS of that motherboard before using it with the new CPUs.
I can't return the motherboard, since it's being shipped to me from very very far away, and I don't have any native B350 compatible CPU, so I was wondering:
Is there any way to update the BIOS of my motherboard with the next-gen CPU? Or even without a CPU at all?


I'd really be bummed out to have to buy a cheap APU just to update it and then not be able to sell it anywhere... Especially since my budget doesn't allow it.


Thank you in advance for the help!
