X570-E Gaming (and probably other AM4) Motherboards Reaching EOL?

Today I noticed that https://rog.asus.com/motherboards/rog-strix/rog-strix-x570-e-gaming-model/helpdesk_bios/ shows an empty page. After clicking around, it turns out that not only the BIOS but also the drivers page is gone. The only sections remaining on the Support page are some generic ones like FAQ, Warranty and so on.

The page might be in the process of re-design but I suspect that ASUS may have decided to cut the support for the mobo almost 5 years after they introduced it. What do you think?

The BIOS page is restored so it must have been something temporary. I hope that we will continue to get support for some time more.

The actual reason to check the BIOS page was this news  - https://www.techpowerup.com/322084/amd-patches-zenbleed-vulnerability-with-agesa-1-2-0-ca-update. I can see that latest BIOS 5013 contains the 1.2.0.Ca microcode and the patch notes also confirm its purpose: "Fix AMD processor vulnerabilities security" (for X570 it is called ComboPI, not AGESA like for AM5 but I suppose that the same version is not just a coincidence).

I spoke to the Asus sales person in Mumbai. The support will be there but they have stopped making new X570 boards. Sigh...

Thanks for letting us know. I understand why they would have interest to stop manufacturing this quite old mobo, especially given that this year we should see a new generation of CPUs and a new chipset from AMD. Continuing the support with new BIOS versions for X570 would be great though.
