    Looks like AGESA 1.2.0.2 will seek to resolve this issue.
    https://www.reddit.com/r/Amd/comments/m2wqkf/updated_agesa_coming_for_intermittent_usb/

    (From: https://www.tweaktownforum.com/foru...abyte/28656-gigabyte-latest-beta-bios/page925 Post # 13873)

    EDIT: But yeah early April for AMD to provide the AGESA code and then whenever motherboard vendors provide beta bios updates for the 570 and 550 boards and how this AGESA code is then incorporated and added to the 400 series although here the USB issues shouldn't be a factor at least. :)

    MSI tends to be really quick, Asus as well and then it seems a bit mixed with Gigabyte taking a bit of time doing their validation and testing before rolling out beta bios updates from what I've been reading.

    From that to final is fairly consistent though roughly monthly update routines.
    Some of the beta bios builds can have their issues too even if it just adds the new AMD AGESA code it can still go through a couple of beta builds before being finalized.


    But yeah nothing new there it's called beta for a, with this out then hopefully all the current major issues with the newer motherboards and the AGESA code along with CPU functionality will be mostly resolved. :)
    (I'm a bit uncertain as the state of PCI Express 4.0 compatibility but part of these issues could also be hardware related.)

    Looking forward to the fix. So that I can Q-Flash it when I'll be building my next PC... soon-ish... I hope...

    So far haven't had any issues on my x570 rog strix, only problem for me was setting up a raid array but a bios flash sorted that, USB ports all working fine and the system seems more stable than my 4790k setup, still it's good they're looking into this.

    And here I am trying to install AGESA 1.2.0.1 first.. (which is not out yet for anyone other than MSI)

    It’s also pretty interesting that I made 2 different builds recently one with a B550 MSI Tomahawk and a 5600X and the other a 3800X to 5800X swap on a X570 GB Aorus Master board, the latter one doesn’t suffer any USB issues but the B550 build definitely suffers from major issues with USB 2.0

    No issues on my system, logitech 502 hero, corsair keyboard, xbox one controller, gpu running pcie 4.0. Running on asus x570 tuf gaming plus wifi with bios 3001 (thats not even the latest).
    Amd really needs to improve their quality control in the next platform, am4 had been a pain in the *** with the stability through the years

    Bye fanboy. Typical excuse for some fangirl to drool on intel again.

    Seriously. You act like its the end of the world.

    This happened with Intel most would be like good work fixing it.
    And has it, end of the world. AMD is trash. Hail Intel.

    Hmmm, weird. I have two AMD systems and did not experience those issues. Maybe it is specific to manufacturer?

    This is one for the history books. We're changing our graphics card test system from Intel to an AMD Zen 3 Ryzen platform, with PCIe 4 and resizable BAR.

    nvidia will have to slash 3070 prices down to slightly less obscene.
