I lost some performance with 3602. 3Dmark, cinebench15,23 all show a bit of a drop in multicore perf despite shoing a mhz increase in ryzen master. Also noticed my edc tops at 140a instead of 190a.

The Aida fix is working and I have slighly lower latency on this new bios.

My EDC is still 190A I have PBO 2 set to use motherboard for limits.

I went back to 3405 and confirmed my EDC is at 190A there. 3602 improves single core performance in cpu-z from 662->667, but drops multi core performance in both 3dmark and cinebench 23. This is confusing as ryzen master shows me touching 4.5ghz multi core speeds in 3602, but barely touching 4.4 in 3405. SC speeds seem to touch 4.8-4.9 in both bios versions where 3602 touched 4.9 more often.

I scored 21750-21950 on avg with 3405 but on 3602, it does 21320 at best. Since my games tend to flow with the cinebench and 3dmark scores, I will stick with 3405 until a BIOS comes out with AGESA 1.2.0.2 with the official USB fix.

CPU power draw seems lower in 3602 as well, I barely break 160W, while I am touching 170W with 3405 at full load. The drop in power draw seems to correspond with the drop in performance, most likely the EDC capped at 145A is hurting that last bit of performance. I am running -30 on all my weak cores and -4 on the strong ones and a neg voltage offset on cpu 0.0525.

When I was on Bios 3001 I had single core boost to 5050mhz then when I updated to 3405 that was 5025mhz and now on 3602 single boost are back up to 5050mhz.

For CPU z are you doing like 3 runs then taking the average I find with that benchmark the scores go up and down alot.

Didn't see much of a performance difference between AGESA 1.1.0.0 patch C, 1.2.0.0 and 1.2.0.1. All are around 21500-21800 in cinebench R23 with D.O.C.P. + TRC memory profile and all other settings at stock (auto/default). Score mostly depends on ambient temp. CPU-Z is around 675-677 for all three bios versions.

My runs are average runs. I usually run it multiple times to see where it lands at. 3405 scores better in multi core and 3602 scores better in single thread.

I ran some vermintide 2 runs, not exactly the best indicator, but when averaged out, it shows the same conclusion; mc score is down a bit. I can break 200 fps consistently with 3405, but only see it touch 200 1 run out of 10 on 3602.

3603 beta is out. It has added the USB connectivity fix in the notes. I will still avoid this version until it is out of beta as I'm not trusting 360x performance for multi core.

I never load beta's so I will wait for final build but thanks for the update.

Kind of related - so I hope this is an OK place to post it.

I was browsing the web and watching a YouTube video today when my monitors just went dark. PC was still "on" but definitely not responsive. Reset - nothing. Power off, power on - nothing. Checked the Q-code (ASUS Crosshair Hero VIII Wi-Fi) and it was "0d" - found this thread and this thread - removed mem, switched order around, nothing. Went to one stick - booted. Removed DOCP to get past BIOS - into Windows - all good. Powered off, reinstalled all 4 sticks of mem (3600 MHz G.Skill), and I've been running HCL Memtest and mining away with NiceHash QuickMiner all day simultaneously without an issue (still on 2133 MHz mem, DOCP off).

I'm running the 3302 BIOs (and have been since it released - without issue) - I read up on the AMD USB issue and this doesn't sound like my prob. Should I roll the new 3401 beta??

Any thoughts or is this just kind of part of the "foibles" of running on a new, cutting edge platform like Zen 3? (AMD Noob - Intel previously for 20+ years). Thanks.

EDIT: after a few hours of running solid it crashed with "90" in the Q-code LED. A reset got me back and I had to go to the BIOS to get it to boot (interestingly, only the HDMI connection to my 3080 worked - the DP connection was not displaying, until I made it past the BIOS reset). I then YOLO'd and put on the beta 3401. Probably the opposite of what to do at this point...but I don't understand what's up.

I'm now thinking it is maybe a video issue? The 90 code has people trying their cards with HDMI instead of DP or vice versa. Very, very strange.

EDIT: so far, so good after the 3401 BIOS. Going to let it run overnight. This image is the best "welcome to AMD" thing ever - running a 3/19 beta on 3/22. LOL. Granted - it's beta...but I love it.

3801 is out for the Strix x570 now. It has the most recent AGESA 1.2.0.2 in it.

Important to note that is beta.

I'm going to stay on 3603 for now until that is out of beta then I will check it out. Everything has been good so far on this current bios.

For the Crosshair VIII Hero (Wi-Fi) they called it beta then removed the beta text after about a week - same version. lol

That is what you see posted on the site but how do you know what is done internally before that is posted :)

I'm usually not in a rush so I prefer to wait since I work from home on this machine.
