    Finally!
    As a MSI X570 Unify owner been struggling with all Zen 3 'ready' bioses so far.
    They are all full of bugs.
    I hope this time MSI did their very best.

    Patch D should have been OK at least but 1.1.9.0 here should have some fun things and the new version for PBO2 also. :)
    (PBO2Curve I suppose as it's PBO+Curve Optimizer. :p <- Despite that little thing I heard it's really good though but it requires some tuning.)

    Wasn't expecting these to roll out until later in January, MSI keeps being really quick with these AGESA updates but that isn't necessarily a bad thing.

    I can confrim the feature is in MSI B550 Tomahawk but from what i've seen the idle voltage is still a problem I am still sitting in the 1.4+ range on idle with PBO turned on . I've tried -5 all cores anything above that windows doesn't want to boot. Doesn't seem to work at the moment also whatever you change in that menu bios doesn't register it as changes when I press F10 it says "you haven't made any changes to the bios" . So I guess it isn't working as intended at the moment.

    Update: After tinkering around with it it does work underload I've managed to do 5.05Ghz on single core before that It was doing 4.95ghz on Ryzen 5900x . Also in cinebench r15 my multiscore went up form 3690 to 3760 so it does something. My settings were the limits>motherboard, CPU Overclock-100mhz, curve optimizer -9 all cores.

    Any Arock x570 owners notice changes with the Type D (latest bios), its my first Asrock MOBO and im not a fan of the BIOS, seems problematic to me.

    Crashburn162 , I just flashed 1.1.9.0 on my C8F/5900X and after some tries I found out that I get the best MT/ST scores by setting AutoOC to 0Mhz and negative 30 on all cores in the pbo curve optimizer. I too was not able to boot with anything under -5 before zeroing the AutoOC, so please try to set AutoOC to 0Mhz and then try to go down with the pbo curve optimizer up to negative 30. My scores are now roughly 8600/640 in CBR20 MT/ST and 9900/685 in CPUZ MT/ST at stock PPT/TDC/EDC, besides the curve optimizer I left all the other pbo options to auto.

    The C and D is Agesa 1.1.0.0 (and work both fine on my X570 TB3)
    You can get the one with agesa 1.1.9.0 on the global site (not localised)
    Some are in beta, and those that don't have... well then you will have to wait :)

    guess that person never had to pay for hw and always got new stuff,
    so there was never the need to update prior to upgrade.

    if i want a stable machine, i verify it with (test) tools/benches/games etc, as nothing is automatically "stable", just because its not a beta.
    so what do you tell ppl that have a new cpu to install on an existing board?
    put the pc aside until someone else (who btw, if everyone waits) says its stable?

    lol, just thinking about all the security issues that ppl would have, not regularly updating their stuff.
    guess dont have a smartphone, as they push updates at least once a week...

    I was able to boot in -15 AutoOC-0 .I did get the best results with that It didn't boost single core to 5.025Ghz but it sustained 4.950 which gave best scores in both signle core and multi core. I guess next step is the Ryzen Clock Tuner tool with the hybrid overclocking from when to switch to manual clock, right now I beleive only ASUS high end boards have this feature.

    I only miss sam and higher fclk , my 5600X can't go above 1800. But can boost close to 4900mhz :) Can't complain , no issues on F10 :D

    I'm honestly shocked that Asus has been keeping up. Their RMA may take 3 months, and their support may or may not exist, but at least their BIOS updates are a thing which exist.

    @Neo Cyrus
    until its 2y old and they stop doing anything, like they do with driver.
    unless they messed up and it needs an update to run ..

    Should see one next week probably, but hot damn if the current AGESA isn’t a downright mess, USB issues, WHEA issues, audio issues, stability issues.

    AMD needs to get their crap together ASAP.
