Right, so not an overall improvement after all. Interesting to see what others report.
Well it has been a while since i visited the website since i'm doing a lot of other stuff ( hobbies - aka watersports - Surfing , Kite-surfing , Windsurfing , Scuba diving etc.. ) and i'm no longer interested in hardware and or gaming at the moment , there is life besides the internet world . Also all this bad news and overpriced hardware has pushing me away from this hobbie.
End of drama
Well here is an update to my ATTO benchmark after this recent chipset update and it does look a lot better , specifically the writes. Something was off at the time of that last benchmak posted above , that windows spectre first patch indeed got my Crucial 1050TB mx300 sata ssd slower in the writes as you can see now i'm still using the same ssd , same settings , same oc on everything but writes went up to where it has always been. I'm glad that problem is solved and thank you guys for keeping up to date this thread since i have no idea when i will come back and be active on the internet. Bye , Back to the beach i go ...
Yeah there's life outside hardware as well. Some may even say that life actually is outside PCs and gaming but sounds quite outlandish...
Have fun with your (other) hobbies!
Meltdown is not a joke.
Funny .. I can't see the image you posted until I quote your post ...
If I'm replacing my MB it will be with what you pictured .. the ROG CrossHair V11 HERO .. but not the Wi-Fi edition.

Game performance bit underwhelming but not a surprise as this is a refresh release.
Really hope Zen 2 can catch up Intel in this regard.
Turbo frequency scaling wrt. number of cores looks interesting.
I hope it improves with BIOS updates it is too early to call. Still best gaming CPUs seems to be i5 8400/8500(wherever available). Bang for buck.
Zen 2 comes for sure in 2019? Any info?
So another new BIOS is out for my mobo but this one is a little confusing xD
- Improved memory compatibility.
- Improved M.2 device compatibility.
- Improved Windowns7 compatibility.
1. Do not update this BIOS if you`re currently using windows7
2. This BIOS doesn't support Windows7.
So errr improved windows 7 compat but I cant use windows 7 xD
and new bios for ROG STRIX X350-F GAMING
also new ryzen user here. so I been experimenting with clocks.
so far I got my memory at 3000mhz using amd profile settings, even though it is rated at 3200. but its intel cert memory. so take some changes to settings to get it stable.
and just testing cpu overclock. all cores set to 3.7ghz. using normal voltage which is actually lower compare to the turbo .
Ended up reflashing bios 6001 but ended up using AfuEfix64 through the EFI shell utilizing switches /b /p /n /k /clrcfg. Seems to have cleared up a few issues by erasing and writing to all the blocks. The cpu speed as read out by HWiNFO64 does not fluctuate as radically. The temps are only a smidge better. The NVMe drive performance increased from 3000 to 3100 as measured by the Samsung Magician software. Ram latency is now a consistent 65.0. So something left over from a previous flashing was not playing all that well with others.
Still patiently waiting for a newer bios to play with.
When you flash you're supposedly meant to clear the CMOS. Although this is done at flash time it's still recommended in flash instructions.
In the command line that's represented by the /clrcfg command.
Thank you for putting that command into plain words. Every step before the actual flashing of the bios I am literally standing on one foot spinning clockwise while rubbing my head counter clockwise. All those steps make me think twice before just jumping in and saying "What the he||".
Load and save defaults
pull battery (out for a minute or two)
while battery is out, disconnect any peripheral not needed for flashing
put battery back
clear CMOS again
flash new bios version
clear CMOS again
remove power again
pull battery again
reconnect all peripherals
put battery back
clear CMOS a final time
Boot into bios to input settings
It's crazy but that is what I do. Will not change it because it keeps me from flashing every Tom, Dick, and Harry bios version that comes down the pike.

Ryzen-2000 CPU's are already in stock and accessible for purchase in Russia !
" I found that some russian guys have already bought new Ryzen 2600 and 2700 in their local shops. Here is thread where they share test results and opinions ... "

Neat, +150-200mhz, not bad considering they tightened the l2 and l3 cache latencies,
For Asus CH-6 users Elmor from Asus should be posting a new improved Bios with latest Agesa code very soon , bug fixes and some performance enhancement ,once it's out i will let you guys know. I think if it's a good Bios that will be my last Bios upgrade for a while as long as it is stable with my overclocks.
Boom ! and here it is , just posted at this moment as i was speaking and making this announcement:
Test BIOS 0001 with AGESA 188.8.131.52a for C6H, official beta will follow if no major issues are found (including C6HWIFI/C6E).
- Sleep/resume timer issues when overclocking fixed
- OS frequency reporting when overclocking back to normal
- SIO sensor/fan fix not yet implemented
- HPET disable option in BIOS not yet implemented

Honestly, I know its only CPUZ, but this made me feel good about my 1500x @ 3.9
Ram is at 2933. When I push it to 3060, I get negative single core performance ironically. It will drop down to 391.
Wish I had a better cooler though. Pushes 63c at load.
Hoping I can get a R5 2600 and push 4ghz+ with a 120mm AIO.
