    Whoa. I bought Boardview with our board. We have the ability to overclock the laptop HARDWARE. We can increase the voltage on the video card by removing or changing the position of the element on the board.

    Probably security updates or compatibility updates for Windows 10 20H2 given the release timeframe. It is all the engineers are allowed to do on old products like that. If you want Zen3 support then hope for a successor using the Helios 700 chassis which seems pretty close the 500 (but Intel+Nvidia only at the moment).

    That's the weird thing, the release timeframe is October 2020... which seems interesting to me. Since its Insyde that provides the bios itself, its possible they may have incorporated support for at least Zen 2 and high frequency RAM in all 4 slots.
    Trouble is... we don't know what kind of updates it contains, so short of spending money on Zen 2 cpu's to try it out, we need Acer or Insyde to let us know (ironically I reached out Insyde as well and they mentioned I should talk to the OEM... or in this case, Acer).

    Acer is not an OEM in this case. OEM is quanta computer. Based on the ZGX from quanta computer, Acer created the Helios PH517-61.
