I'm hoping Samsung can claw back some of the lost IOPS performance with a new driver. All though I haven't noticed any performance difference om my 960 EVO except those you can measure. In daily use it feels the same.
^over the weekend was playing with the BCLK setting to see what I could gain back. Settled on a BCLK of 101.2 and a multiplier of 39. The ram is now functioning at 3508 (same timings as with 3466). Got the ram performance loss back with improved latency as well. The 960 EVO saw the IOPs come back to what they were before. The writes are even a little better at 1547. Reads are a lost cause at this point down to 232X from 3210. The 3144 seemed consistent having run the benchmark three times with 30 minutes between runs giving the same results. After a day or two, that reading plummeted to 212X. Like you say though, can only tell the performance loss by looking at the numbers.
Ryzen DRAM Calculator 0.9.9 v11
Interesting... still no KB4056892 patch via WU:
only Defender definitions, Flash player update and malware removal tool January 2018.
Checked update history too and not there either. Build ver 16299.125 still.
Did all of you who have the patch install it manually? Because it seems MS isn't even pushing it for Ryzen systems?
You can have it from here,if you want it so bad:
The patch came through WU last week, next day after all this hit the fan. Uninstalled both patches that installed. Confirmed it was the patch causing a few issues, and then had WU install it again. Difference was that WU did not install the other one second time around.
Just found this: http://news.softpedia.com/news/micr...tes-due-to-issues-on-amd-systems-519278.shtml
Exact opposite actually, quite happy it hasn't appeared. Was wondering how people here got the update.
So pulled on purpose, that explains it then. Didn't get it last week either though.
I installed it from there. Haven't had a single issue.
My i7 4790k got it from WU. No issues on that either.
Ok, good to know. I'll wait for WU rollout though.

New beta BIOS 3501
- Update to latest AGESA with support for 2nd gen Ryzen processors. Version number is reset, this release is 18.104.22.168a.
- Supports additional DRAM ratios which might help you get closer to your max DRAM frequency without using reference clock. New ratios: 2733, 2866, 3000, 3133, 3266, 3400, 3533, 3666, 3800, 3933, 4066, 4133, 4200.
- Still has the S3 resume TSC frequency bug. Enable HPET or don't use sleep mode for now.
- Custom P-state overclocking seems to disable P1/P2 states

Shame p-states are broken otherwise I'd test it
Installed 3501. Skipped 3101.
Initial impressions is that it is a step in the right direction. Was able to post with bootstrap 3533. Will not make it into Windows. Not willing to play with CLDO_VDDP yet. Bootstrap 3600 is still a no go. Will not even post; memory hole must have moved as a result of certain default settings. Ram is trained a bit differently. Twr now defaults to 20. Default under 3008 was 26. All the rest stayed at the same defaults. Aside from that, previous settings booted and was stable at the same voltage as with 3008. Have not tried to see if less voltage is a possibility yet.
Do not know why but still anxiously waiting for 3600 to be a reality. Do not care about the whole 3600 at C16 is not as good as 3200 with tight timings. Fixated on achieving that speed for some reason.
I find everything is the most snappy at 3200 with 14-14-14-14-34-1T. Have you tried 3200 with 13-13-13-13-32-2T ? You may get lucky and it will work stable. I have not tested on my kit yet.
Started out on 14-14-14-14-32-1T @ 3200. As soon as was able to get 3466 stable was there. Recently having hit stability with 3508 (101.2BCLK x 3466bootstrap) @ 15-15-15-15-35-50-1T @1.38v have been quite happy there. SOC is offset @ -.01875 and the cpu w a multi of 39 is offset @ +.03750. Will give the 13-13-13-13 a try. Have not even gotten into the whole P-State thing.
I just benchmarked with 3200 at 13-13-13-13-32-1T. No issues so far. I may just leave it there for a while.
Edit: This is definitely offering improved responsiveness in Windows and program launch times as well.
Tried 13-13-13-13-32-1T on UEFI 3501, could not get it stable. For that matter, ram speed 3508 ended up being a no go as well. Have since gone back to UEFI 3008 knowing that current settings are good to go. Still feel 3501 is a step in the right direction; just not currently for me.
New Bios posted for Asus PRIME X370-PRO v3404
Improve system performance
I don't know if it contains spectre patch. Will flash and test.
No spectre patch still vulnerable
ASRock boards seem to have new BIOSes out, "update AGESA for upcoming processors"
There are some slightly revised Chipset drivers out: http://support.amd.com/en-us/download/chipset?os=Windows 10 - 64
Seems to update the PCI driver.
