Rumor is that Zen 3 will be AM4 with DDR4 while Zen 4 will be DDR5 and a new socket. Just rumors tho.
Like I said, possible, but I dont buy it. Intel is already planning on transitioning to DDR5 for its next real chip cycle. I cannot see why AMD wouldnt be as well.

I'm not too interested in a bios flash, I'd rather things work out of the box. Can someone recommend an overclockable motherboard that doesn't break the bank for the Ryzen 3600?

For what it's worth, the ASRock B450M Pro4 that I got off Amazon last week came with a Ryzen 3000 sticker on the box and the UPC sticker had a "3". I had bought another one from Newegg a few months prior, it had "R2" on the UPC and no Ryzen 3000 sticker, but still had a BIOS which supported Ryzen 3000.

Of course, YMMV, perhaps I just lucked out in both cases. Though I didn't use any 3000 series CPU (2700X and 2700) since they were both cheap for 8-core CPUs.
