    MSI got a new BIOS for my mobo and I can now set the CPU vcore to below 1.3v once again. They also added setting to change PCIE from x16 to x4x4x4x4 ...

    - Improved memory compatibility.
    - Improved PCIE device compatibility.
    - Update AGESA Code 1.0.0.1a to support new upcoming processors.

    https://www.msi.com/Motherboard/support/X370-GAMING-PLUS.html#down-bios

    Also, Not bios related but my bus speed is very unstable.

    I know is moves about a bit and thats normal for any cpu but this is ranging from around 95mhz up to 100.03MHZ fluctuating every second according to CPUZ. So my clock speed is all over the shop. 3.669Ghz to 3.825Ghz.

    Is that the same for anyone else?

    ^ That BIOS update is interesting. My MSI B350M Gaming Pro latest BIOS:

    7A39v2C
    Release Date 2018-01-29
    File Size 9.7 MB

    Description
    - Improved memory compatibility.
    - Improved PCIE device compatibility.
    - Update AGESA Code 1.1.0.1 to support Raven Ridge CPU.

    Why is your boards AGESA code different or is it older? Excuse my ignorance :confused:

    Well my original bios was AGESA 1.0.0.6b then it was 1.1.0.1 and now its 1.0.0.1a so That seems "older" but its a "newer" bios.. but the version number for my bios is a little odd

    It was v53, v54, v55 and then v58 and now this one is v5A sooo dunno whtas going on there

    My memory speed tweaking may not be quite as good in the new MSI X370 Pro Gaming Carbon. I can still use the same timings and speed I did previously so no loss, but still!

    The numbering is done by AMD. Do not know about the other manufacturers but ASUS had the bios also labled with Summit, Raven, and now with the numbering starting from the beginning again, Pinnacle (1.0.0.0a). 1.0.0.1a is supposed to be the most recent AGESA from AMD for the launch of Zen+.

    Noticed that too. Downloaded and updated to the newer one. Took without any problems, seems just as fast and stable(ASRock X370 Pro4). Still rocking the 4.1ghz on the 1800X. Trying to fiddle with memory timings now, but I'm a noob at that.

    If your RAM runs at rated speed just leave it be for the moment.

    Sorry, so everything is stabilized? You are only squishing extra performance juice now then? I am glad to hear that. Ryzen plus will already have AM4 compatible and working out of the box ram, is this correct a assumption?

    Hey @chispy & co., do you still see a SSD performance drop versus Windows versions prior to Spectre patches?

    Because I, only now, got a CU pushed to me via WU, used .125 build of Windows 10 until now. No drop in SSD (SATA) performance for me:

    Before latest CU (.125, without Spectre patches):
    [​IMG]

    After latest CU (.309):

    so if you still have performance drops definitely install latest CU. New BIOS versions could also make a difference I suppose (using P4.50 for Killer SLI atm).

    I just tested my 960 EVO (after installing the latest chipset drivers) the read speed is up by a whopping 520 MB/s and write speed is up by 120 MB/s.
    I did install the latest Cumulative Windows Update earlier this week. The last time I benched my 960 EVO was on January 5th 2018 just after applying the first meltdown / spectre patch.
    So performance has definitively picked up since then.

    @Webhiker

    Looks good. So seems confirmed then, whatever caused SSD perf. drops has now been fixed for Ryzen platform.

    At least on my 960 EVO ... the other SSD's I have, 850 EVO and CorsAir Force GS, performance is the same.

    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 :D


    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 ... :D

    Yeah there's life outside hardware as well. Some may even say that life actually is outside PCs and gaming but sounds quite outlandish... :p

    Have fun with your (other) hobbies!
