I am wondering what newest AGESA ComboAm4PI 1.0.0.6 from AMD actually do because I cannot really find anything information about it other then oh we bring 3000 series XT CPU support is that the only thing?

The AGESA 1.0.0.4 did give at least me better boot times of my NVME SSD before this version it was like my board actually booted twice before it booted.

You're not the only one. I wish detailed information about AMD CPUs were easier to come by.

MSI will issue the update for my X470 motherboard with the usual 3 months delay compared to Gigabyte, Asus and AsRock, if at all.
The motherboard itself is perfect and very well equipped for the price, but updates aren't a priority for them it seems.

It's Beta, but they still have one.

Is there something wrong with the 2101 (ComboAM4v2PI 1.0.0.2) bioses, which are available for Crosshair VIII boards?

Besides, at this point AGESA makes a very little difference, since the platform has reached a stable-state a long time ago. Its not like you would be loosing performance in some workloads, because you're not using the most
recent AGESA version. At this point newer versions mostly include fixes and workaround for certain oddball scenarios and support for new hardware, which obviously doesn't affect your current system.

What o_O

I hope this isn't a rebadged x570, if AMD's going to outdo Intel on rehashes & (extra) 100Mhz premium products ~ might as well wait for them to come back to their senses & act more like AMD of the not too distant past!

Reminds me of the early 870, 890 motherboards.

Good, I'm the only one on Gigabyte B350 and 3950X, and I still get agesa updates. Nice. I mean, I don't what's new, but at least they still update old mobos.

And what BIOS are you talking about exactly? The Crosshair VIII only has AGESA v1.0.0.4 in its latest, stable BIOS release?

Hey guys. Anyone here with the same issue with me?
My x470 taichi doesn't accept all the ram when I using the new ryzen 5 3600xt.
Just one stick of ram shows up on bios. And also anyone knows when ASRock releases new bios for XT processor?
