MSI has been working closely with AMD to ensure that their hardware environment is optimized for safer and more efficient use. To achieve this, MSI will be releasing a new list of BIOS updates, specifically designed for the AMD Ryzen 7000 series CPUs.
According to AMD's design specifications, the RyzenTM 7000X3D series CPU does not support overclocking or overvoltage adjustments, including CPU ratio and CPU Vcore voltage. However, AMD EXPO technology can be used to optimize memory performance by appropriately increasing the CPU SoC voltage to ensure system stability when operating at higher memory frequencies. Based on AMD's recommendations, MSI will limit the CPU SoC voltage to a safe range for Ryzen 7000X3D series CPUs to mitigate potential CPU damage caused by inappropriate overclocking or overvoltage. The same safety concern will also apply to regular RyzenTM 7000 series CPUs.
For the new BIOS release, MSI will prioritize this limitation on the CPU SoC voltage. We strongly recommend that users using Ryzen 7000 series CPUs update their BIOS and use sufficient CPU cooling, such as 280mm or higher AIO cooling, to achieve optimal performance.
In addition to this update, MSI also announced that all AMD AM5 series motherboards will now support up to 192GB DDR5 memory capacity. The new DDR5 memory modules offer a combination of raw speed and maximum capacity, making them perfect for professionals, creators, and anyone who relies heavily on multitasking daily.
