    Too bad sam doesn't work with RX5700XT,I have the cpu but not a gpu that supports it.

    might not be required. all ryzen chips should support resizable bar at least physically.

    Now give me sam support for 400 series so my future 6800 can be fully utilized

    Hopefully the Ryzen 3000 series will get supported as well.

    My fervent hope as well since I have the 3900X (though I doubt it), I already have an X570 mobo and a GPU for it, a Sapphire Nitro+ RX 6800.

    Yeah it’s stupid, even previous gen GPU’s should support it I doubt there’s any hardware optimisation in the new RDNA 2 cards or Zen 3 chips to maximise the benefits of SAM.

    There is but how much of a difference it does I'm not sure as to but in theory it's handling it far better judging by the numbers I've seen.

    EDIT: There's were I found that again.

    but also.

    There's other instruction fixes too but it might be very situational where those fixes come in handy.

    1.0.8.0 AGESA perhaps and the 3000 series Zen2's having done their thing and going out of availability so new revisions will have these or newer for Zen3 going forward or so I would imagine would be the most likely reason for that.
    (1.1.0.0 still somewhat of a WIP and 1.1.8.0 or newer probably being where most of this is going to be solved.)

    EDIT: Probably going to be a bit of stock and such left for the 3000 series CPU's even after manufacturing of new ones ceases but anyone picking up a X570 or B550 board for 2021 it's probably likely to be a newer revised model with a more recent bios without need for a update or the CPU which is likelier to be a Zen3 won't work at all.

    EDIT: Should just have shortened it to likely due to newer hardware compatibility. :D
