SR-IOV = Multi VM Passthrough
Nvidia has enabled single vm passthrough.
There are a couple features I really wish they would just add to the standard control panel — like, why is the only way to enable half refresh Vsync in the control panel the “adaptive” way which doesn’t work correctly with the low lag Vsync trick?
Seems so silly since surely all it would take to change something like that is adding the option that already exists to the existing dropdown, yet they choose force users into grabbing inspector.
I just don’t get it — like, some of these features are useful enough to be included in the standard panel I mean.
In general I’d argue the whole control panel could use an overhaul as, in my own opinion at least, AMD’s control panel looks a lot better nowadays, but I suppose function is the most important thing.
Asrock in the end were decent, they enabled all way back to z370, first bios was broken, they could have turned round and said sorry we wont support but got a fixed bios out a day later, also they communicated great on my ticket.
Sadly the new bios seems to be broken on some other minor options now, like TPM cant be disabled anymore. But otherwise seems to be working fine.
I expect the feature can go back several hardware generations but the vendors will want to encourage people to upgrade.
New bios 4.70 for X470 Taichi supports it too, but Above 4G Decoding still degrades CPU bound performance e.g. in RDR2.
It doesn't do that for me with my B560 Pro4/11400F, though there CAM doesn't work at all yet and traps you in a stuck booting process...
Same for other X470: Taichi Ultimate; Master SLI(/AC); Gaming K4; Gaming ITX/ac
(For those who missed meaning of "Above 4G Decoding" which was available in all BIOSes. It is AGESA 188.8.131.52. So we can test.)
Tried this today but I noticed that my boot drives are gone when I enable 4G Decoding and Re-size BAR. CSM is disabled by default.
Drives are GPT format or MBR? Since MBR won't work.
Gone from boot selection or gone from storage overview? Because when OS is installed with CSM ON, it may result in loss of bootability when it gets disabled.
Is it anything significant? Can it be reproduced in a notable manner (like 100-200+ points) with a CPU benchmark like GeekBench?
It is not something like a general loss of CPU performance across all applications. There are very specific issues with some games, drivers and probably even bioses.
Though my impression is that in the best case, rBAR doesn't help CPU performance at all, as often is implied, but instead merely closes GPU utilization gaps (due to resource uploads?).
The Above 4G Deociding issue in RDR2 is significant, yes. It's something like ~15% loss when CPU bound and CPU utilization is noticeably higher also when GPU bound vs. Above 4G Decoding off (if you're affected). Some scenes like the desert sunset of the benchmark seem to be affected especially bad, with figures like 60 vs. 90fps.
Well done, that's indeed the root cause. I'll have to reinstall Windows someday with my OS NVMe in GPT rather than MBR.
You dont have to to reinstall , windows includes tool to do it:
Could try that after I do a full backup
