Ah, if Microsoft is messing with low-power states and AMD is trying to conform, that would help explain why the bios settings have been unstable. I never got them to work proper on Haswell with a good overclock, so I'm not above disabling them for now.AGESA 126.96.36.199 BIOS coming soon...key feature- improved stability for 1800- 2000Mhz Infinity Fabric...time-stamped video below...
Still waiting..........x570 Tomahawk here
Nice they must have just posted that this morning. They also got rid of the beta bios from 1/4. Anyone try it yet?it's available...download from the MSI website...
- Update to ComboAM4PIV2 188.8.131.52
- Support S.A.M technology (Re-size BAR function) to enhance GPU performance for AMD Radeon RX 6000 series

They changed the memory timings so it's very likely that some people will have to use different settings.
Use the beta 1.51 if that worked better for you.
On the version numbers.... 1.51 was a beta version that they did not elect to make into a release version.
The beta versions do not count if they were not released.
The release versions were 1.4 and then 1.5.
Good to know! I dislike having the LED's running all the time. It would drive me crazy. Wished i had an MC close by. Closest one is 4hrs one way Keep us posted on those clocks! I know I'm gonna clock mine to the moon!Snagged one of these (and a 5800x) at Microcenter on Friday. They were running some minor discounts, but I'd been meaning to snag one anyway. So far, so good. Just running everything via stock and XMP thus far, but will tinker with performance options later in the week.
At first the board LED's were driving me nuts, but discovered that the "Dragon Center" luckily let me disable 'em without having to keep running that (horrid) program running all of the time.
AMD is saying that this new BIOS not only fixes the L3 cache performance issue but also improves gaming performance...Shadow of The Tomb Raider with 184.108.40.206 BIOS Firmware boosts performance by up to 17% (CPU average)...new firmware also enables Smart Access Memory support for AMD Ryzen 3000 CPU's...

Anyone have issues using XMP with this board? Using run of the mill t-force ddr4 and system seemed less stable using XMP. My BIOS is older, I should update it.
do MSI X570 boards support Resizable BAR?...I'm confused...the January BIOS from MSI states: 'Support S.A.M technology (Re-size BAR function) to enhance GPU performance for AMD Radeon RX 6000 series'
the fact that they only mentioned AMD made me think another BIOS update would be required for Nvidia cards...so I'm confused as to whether the January update added support for Resizable BAR across both AMD and Nvidia or if that only applied to AMD cards and another BIOS would be required for Nvidia cards
Yeah, it does. I got everything rolling on Tuesday. At least with my card (EVGA 3090) it required an update to Precision X1. PX1 in turn updated my card's firmware AND the card's BIOS. The motherboard box was already checked and it claims that Resizable BAR is now enabled.
I read about this when I first bought my EVGA 3080...is there any way of preventing Precision from updating the firmware of the card?...does this apply to all manufacturers- meaning will it update the firmware and BIOS of all Ampere cards?...which BIOS does it update it to- the latest one with the Resizable Bar update or an earlier one?...does this happen anytime you open Precision- it checks for and updates to the latest firmware/BIOS?
why is Precision so embedded deep within Ampere's architecture where it automatically updates the BIOS?
There was someone selling one for $200 OBO.
I don't think you're going to find a better deal on an outstanding board. I paid $230 shipped for mine.
AGESA 220.127.116.11 BIOS now available for the Tomahawk...
