    "...The AMD Generic Encapsulated Software Architecture (AGESA) is a library of validated processor procedures designed to aid customers with
    quick adoption of AMD technology into their products...this agesa code was responsible at power-up, for changing the CPU "P-state" from Min P-state, (minimum frequency, reduced
    power consumption) to the maximum performance max P-state..." Source

    Google is your friend. ;)

    basically it just sounds like, they have updated the CPu code library, to maybe fix bugs and/or add more CPU's to the support list. (probably the latter)

    From Min to the max P-state?

    Its just basically a library or table , telling the bios how to control the CPU. different states, etc.
    In terms of a bios update, like I said it just means they have probably added some more CPU's in the support list.
