    Well I guess we're skipping that 1.1.9.0 code then. (EDIT: Meaning Gigabyte. :p )
    Not bad though, all the fixes and the newest AGESA AMD code is optimal long as nothing regresses or breaks after all. :)

    Presumably once the X570 beta builds here are deemed stable enough the B550 motherboards should follow along with the 400 and 300 series for what's still actively supported.

    Also not sure how it compares to F32A 1.2.0.0 but I assume this has been worked on a bit more so there could be additional Gigabyte fixes included even if the AMD AGESA code might be identical.
    (A likely one would be further USB2.0 fixes though it sounds like it's not fully resolved still.)

    32a did have 1.2.0.0, you needed the one from the 13th, the testing bios.

    Yeah it looks like a number of bios updates are out for Gigabyte and the 300 and 400 series now though it might just be the final version of the previous beta that is now posted on various sites.
    No issues so far on F33A here but going by updates from MSI and Asus there might be more to come looks like there's fixes to RAID and some other bits which I would think are part of the AGESA code.
    (Fifth or fourth update for 1.2.0.0 on these motherboards now I think might have started on 1.1.9.0 though before moving to this newer code.)

    Guess that will be clear if there's a F33B update with additional fixes unless it's for some Gigabyte's own code and specific problems on their hardware.
    B550 bios should also eventually be updated and from there the code for the 400 series at least since AMD did change their decision and the updates and Zen3 compatibility improvements with the newer code should be quite useful on all support boards.

    Yesterday updated to F12 , mess again . If you enable Resize bar you end up :

    1. No boot from M.2 (if enabled above 4g encoding).
    2. No display output ( 4g encoding disabled).

    Maybe F16 or F22 will be good BIOS . Asus would have been better option this round .
    I'm not sure if i will ever get SAM support .....

    Your boot loader is legacy or CSM is enabled.

    F13A B550

    AGESA 1.2.0.0

    Hmm was expecting another beta for the X570's first but maybe Gigabyte is satisfied with their own and user reported testing for F33A or AMD hasn't provided any newer builds for them to integrate into the bios yet.


    EDIT: Once this version is wrapped up hopefully that takes care of the more important outstanding Gigabyte motherboard bios issues and the AGESA and related (AMD Boot loader.) problems that have been ongoing for a while now. :)

    Some of it might be hardware level though, not really sure if it's a faulty revision or a subset of these boards that have some of the more severe issues like faulty bios that resets to defaults if you don't take the battery out and power the board down completely for a few minutes.

    Realtek is trying to mitigate the 2.5GB network chipset issues with a software driver and the USB2 issues I presume are AMD's problem though the 3.0 and up ports seemingly work fine.

    EDIT:

    There's a key binding for controlling the UEFI bios resolution??

    Interesting.

    F6 does show bios resolutions, I'm unsure how to select them other than ctrl alt and f6 does down Res it just once.

    Odd bios, crap motherboard tbh, thinking of switching to an x570 formula

    Guys just wanted to inform that new F13a BIOS is up and lets me boot 2000FCLK

    Actually 1966 is faster than 2000 and i have no idea why.

    Also F13B for the B550's but no actual changelog besides AGESA 1.2.0.0 again.
    Presumably either minor bug fixes then unless AMD provided a newer build of this code though I believe they usually change the version number or denote it in some other way like the Patch A to C earlier.

    Wonder if they can get rid of WHEA errors. It's weird because FCLK 2000 seems stable but i get alot of WHEA errors.
