These are available in laptops and  mini PC's  and barebones with soldered in processor.
I think the desktop variant which can be placed in AM4 socket are expected in August.

On top of that, I find your video a bit strange. Apparently you've got some random (old?) EUR80 Motherboard, and then put in one of the latest and newest EUR500+ processor and are surprised it does not work without a bios update. You should be tech savvy enough to know that AM4 sockets are used over multiple generations of processors, and that newer processors often need bios updates before they can be used.

I do literally nothing with computer hardware. I watch zero computer videos, I follow zero computer forums. I built my last system 3+ years ago and it was an intel. I have never used, looked at, nor bought an AMD system apart from my recent Ryzen laptop which of course "just works".
Why should I be expected to be "tech savvy" enough on some aspect of AMD/motherboard/bios compatibility? I had the motherboard, so just looked on the website at the supported processors and saw it supported the new 5000 series, great, so I just bought a 5000 series processor, what's wrong with that?
Ok, so it bit me on the arse because you can't update the bios with the new processor, meh, shit happens. In the end it didn't actually cost me anything except time and a small price difference in the motherboards.
And yes, it is a bit "random" because that's how it happened. It started as a simple dumpster dive upgrade that changed once I got a freebie AMD motherboard. This wasn't supposed to be some big researched computer upgrade.
