    I would say this one is older than v2.05.04.352, no?

    Really? I'm on an x370 Ryzen 1800x build running Windows 10 on top of it for almost 3 years and I have had zero issues. I did wait about three months after release to let the BIOS's stablize.

    You seemed to be saying your rig was working so good you didnt want to update drivers prior:

    Confused.

    That one was for Asrock only, no idea why it’s version is so high. I checked the drivers, v2.04.28.626 and v2.05.04.352 are identical except for the version number of the chipset driver itself. Pretty interesting.

    for sure you do someting wrong on the installation of your cpu, cause in my case i have zero issues with my ryzen 3800x works like charm, never going back to intel.

    while it was released by ASRock, it wasn't just for ASRock boards.
    I installed it on Asus, Msi and Gigabyte boards.

    The version number is a date thus the difference with that or at least the first three numbers.

    2.04.28 - 2020 April 28th.
    2.05.04 - 2020 May 4th.

    You can check the exe properties and digital signature for when AMD added theirs to the installer for this. :)

    There seems to be no significant difference between the earlier Asrock ones and these far as I can tell, some difference in packaging perhaps thus the file size variance but the included components have the same versions and updates since the last AMD released chipset driver from what I compared and the only other change is the release notes which I assume is also mostly identical so a couple of installer improvements and a few known issues indicating AMD has a couple of more installer issues to resolve with this setup program.


    EDIT: I have absolutely no idea why these were signed on the end of April and beginning of May and only now released though, unless some additional testing was needed after signing the file but it's still over a month before it's availability on AMD's website.

    But maybe we'll see more updates for the B550's and newer CPU models although the CPU's should be through bios and AGESA 1.0.0.5 and newer not these component chipset drivers.
    (Or maybe a bit of both, there's more in here than just a bunch of INF files for device names so they have some purpose and it's quite a bundle.)

    That's a very nice UI interface... very slick....

    But one thing, I wish it showed what version of each thing you currently have so you know how much of an upgrade you are doing.

    AMD could have released these yesterday so I wouldn't have to install chipset drivers 2 days in a row.....

    maybe try learning wtf you're doing?

    You definitely have a hardware error or are 'too new' to hardware and may need some formal training.
    There is no reason why it should crash or otherwise have tons of issues.
    Causes of issues could be either faulty hardware and/or illegal use of pirated Windows copies and software, and/or improper hardware installation.
    Make sure you're using stable release driver version and not BETA releases.
    RMA the motherboard and make sure you bought RAM that's on the QVL for the motherboard available on the vendor's website, too.
    Make sure to try different power supplies if needed and make ABSOLUTELY SURE you have all the plugs for the EPS12V plugs plugged in, don't just plug in one and not the other. If it wants 2 plugs, make sure to plug two plugs in (these are not PCI-express power plugs, they would specifically be labeled EPS12V and are typically up in the top left corner of the motherboard above the CPU on most boards, near the IO plate / rear ports). If you do not have all of these plugs on your power supply, make sure to get an EPS12V power supply that does. Try not to use y-adapters as that CAN put strain on the power supply or the cheap connector can catch fire. Follow these instructions unless your manual states otherwise.
    Make sure memory timings are absolutely correct and not being read wrong/set automatically to wrong values. Consider updating BIOS but first talk with the manufacturer for an RMA claim, as it doesn't sound like it's ever been stable at all for you. Yes updating BIOS is easier, you are welcome to try it first, but I wouldn't put all my eggs in that basket.
    RMA the processor if RMA'ing the RAM and the Motherboard fails to work. There was knowledge of some faulty units going out last summer when 3000 series first released - it wasn't too many - but enough that it's popped up on some forums for a very short time.

    When you get everything working, make sure to use Windows 10 LTSB because that's the Long Term Service Branch that gets only minor updates from microsoft and it is supported longer. When everything is working, try not to let it update, as updates have a small chance of breaking things on any installation or hardware. Only let it update when something is broken or there's serious security holes discovered (usually only for intel platforms, but sometimes they affect AMD too).

    I have built 3 Ryzen systems thus far including my recent X570 Elite/R7 3700X that was turned into a 100% working vanilla Hackintosh; Zero issues. Either you are a troll or incompetent.

    Installed the chipset drivers just fine

    Something I love from AMD is that after installing this single package driver. You can go to msconfig and you don't see any services and stuff running when Windows starts.

    In my i5 8th gen laptop I have a lot of apps and services from Intel and I feel like I'm installing a lot of bloatware over Windows 10.

    The MEI I suppose and whatever that little thing includes as a mix between hardware, bios firmware and software through the driver and install package.
    Chipset driver itself should just be a nothing thing just a log file of what it did and it mostly does very little although it could have changed in newer devices compared to when it was just a bunch of INF files for device naming purposes.

    Then there's the network driver which yeah it contains a bunch of stuff if installed in full ranging from helper software to power shell scripts if you don't just use the device driver.
    Suppose on compatible systems you would also have the raid drivers and if these might include some control panel or otherwise and on compatible CPU models there's the iGPU driver which yeah same as AMD and NVIDIA you probably get a bunch of running services and processes that I assume can also be slimmed down with minimal loss of core functionality. :)

    Only way you can doing it is by looking at release notes for current and previuos drivers and compare both. You are right, it is a pain in the arse and could be much easier, hopefully AMD will do something about it...

    This might be a stupid question but can I use this with a B550A board?
    Specifically I am running an Alienware Aurora R10 with a 3900X.
    Dell just pushed a new chipset driver a couple of days ago but in the release note it states that it is only for Win10 pre 1909 versions and that the 1909 update covers it (Which I always thought Win10 included chipset drivers are just basic?)

    Don't see anything available for B550 at the moment.
