AGESA to be released alongside Ryzen 9 3950X

Published by


Before the weekend we talked a bit about the 100 new features/fixes and updates to the pending AGESA update from AMD. A few more details are now surfacing, the firmware update would become available in the same timeframe as the 16-core Ryzen 9 3950X release. Next to that there will be updated boost tweaks.

The boost adjustments invoke the timing of Precision Boost 2 and Precision Boost Overdrive (PBO). And as noted there will be be improvements to CCX overclocking, ie the ability to use tools, for individual CPU core complexes tweaks. Our bud Yuri "1usmus" from the DRAM Calculator for Ryzen mentions AGESA is expected to be released together with the Ryzen 9 3950X in November, and according to MSI holds more than 100 improvements or fixes. The MSI slide, however, is a marketing slide and as they always do, they love hype and virals - since the info already was labeled wrongly in the presentation dubbed 'fixes', I call it pure marketing from the EU team, I would not hold my breath on the accuracy on that one.
