    Seems like AGESA 1.2.0.0 officially brings RYZEN 5000 series support to the X470 and B450 motherboards.

    AGESA 1.2.0.1 - Probably a bug fix to 1.2.0.0
    Improving Ryzen CPU performance - Does look interesting :) I'll have to run some benchmarks to see , my 5800X performance was already running awesome on my B550 Unfiy. Maybe's it's a voltage curve tweak or something. Or a AMD microcode update?

    1.2.0.1 specifically improves the performance of Aida64 L3 cache benches.

    Just for a benchmark, or does it come with practical performance improvements, too?

    There's a few other bug fixes as well but I haven't seen any performance gains reported from that, just that the cache speed (In Aida64 specifically?) is a lot better.

    That's literally all it is , the L3 cache worked fine before , it's just for AIDA64 benchmark to see what the L3 cache was really operating at already :)

    Hi, all. AGESA 1201 contains a fix specifically to improve AIDA64's L3 cache bandwidth test results, enabling this benchmark's test pattern to better show the architecture's true capabilities. It is not a generic change.

    //edit: Vermeer only."

    AMD said 1.2.0.2 is coming in April.

    So until then, at least we got 1.2.0.1 "patched" with the USB fix.
    Works fine for me, I got all my ports back and they are working stable, so gj finding the bug *thumbsup*

    - Support S.A.M technology (Re-size BAR function) to enhance GPU performance for AMD Radeon RX 6000 series.

    1. This is AMI BIOS release
    2. This BIOS fixes the following problem of the previous version:
    - Update to ComboAM4PIV2 1.2.0.1
    - Improving Ryzen CPU performance
    3. 2021/02/24

    And this is the latest.......

    What bugs me is Msi dont state what the problem was with the previous bios that needed fixing, I`ve gone through all the bios releases and not one says what was going to or needed to be fixed.

    Got the 1202 just now...after my K70lux decided to go dark on me, so far no obvious change but my main issue so far has been my h115i restarting/reseting itself and the led`s doin random things, while it may be an icue issue its also connected to a usb 2.0 header.
