Gigabyte B450 DS3H BIOs update for Ryzen 5 3600?

I bought a Ryzen 5 3600 bundle with the Gigabyte B450M DS3H this past week from Microcenter. Before I kickoff my build, do I need to have the Bios updated for the B450? I have heard mixed reports on if newer made motherboards already have Bios updated to work with Ryzen 5 3600.

    Look for a label on the box that looks like this:

    If that label is on your motherboard box, then you do not have to do a BIOS update. If it's not there, then a BIOS update may be required. You'd need to use a previous generation Ryzen CPU to do it, or you could bring the motherboard to the service desk at your local Micro Center store and we can do a BIOS update for you. There would be a $29.99 labor charge in that case. 

    Alternatively, if you're within the return period on the board you could do an exchange and we could find one that is updated out of box. Pretty much all the 400 series boards should be shipping with the correct BIOS.
