They have never done a full changelog.

These new AGESA can add or remove bios option features. When I went through the different AGESA versions on my b450, the transformation in the bios was spectacular between different versions.

MSI had put out this for eg. B350 motherboards, seems it had lost support for a few older R5 CPUs, as I tried.
Would have thought backward compatibility is there, but it is not. Seems be wider affected than Bristol Ridge CPUs.

AGESA ComboAm4v2PI 1.2.0.7

There is no easy way to revert, so be aware.

Biostar has released an update for my X470GTQ. I have not updated to it yet. Just installed the June 2021 update today as I was still on the original December 2019 UEFI and I have had continuous USB problems with this computer (across different Linux distributions and kernel versions and with different devices; CPU is a Zen+ 1600 AF).

I have a MSI A320M PRO-E and Ryzen 5 2600, and also have a ton of USB issues. Will a new bios update with AGESA Combo V2 PI 1.2.0.7 work with my CPU? Also is a new bios update mandatory for Win11?

"It's also worth noting that the early USB issues plaguing Ryzen platforms have been fixed since the AGESA 1.2.0.2 microcode update went live earlier this year. So if your board did not come with a 1.2.0.2 patch (or others such as 1.2.0.5 and 1.2.0.6b), AGESA 1.2.0.7 does include this additional hotfix."
"For users planning on upgrading to AGESA 1.2.0.7 on an older 300 series or 400 series motherboard, there are some extra necessary precautions to consider.

A lot of these older motherboards that are receiving the new AGESA update are getting them in the form of beta BIOS updates. Unfortunately, these beta BIOS' are only partially tested, unlike official BIOS revisions. As a result, you could encounter some additional bugs when installing a beta BIOS."

"MSI is one of the strongest vendors supporting AGESA 1207, with effectively all its motherboards supporting the new microcode either in official or beta bios formats.

A320: All boards feature 1207 support in both official and beta bios format except one model."

Regarding Win 11:
"This update includes fixes for the infamous fTPM stuttering bug"
"In March, AMD announced that it had identified a severe stuttering issue on Ryzen systems that was solely related to the Trusted Platform Module. The issue would cause Ryzen systems to stutter or freeze temporarily. The problem is made even worse because TPM support is mandatory for Windows 11."
So seems like this update should be available for your motherboard and like it is a good idea to update to resolve the USB issues as well as to ensure stability on Windows 11.

My board is the one with beta bios. I managed to flash the beta bios successfully and it works with Ryzen 2600. As soon as i booted into Windows I've received the message to upgrade to Windows 11.

Was still experiencing USB issues with an external 2.0 port (in Startech 4-port adapter connected to header on motherboard) so I updated to 1.2.0.7 from the Biostar June 2021 UEFI release (I think that's AGESA 1.2.0.2): just booted up my computer and again my USB WiFi adapter was not working (connected to a normal USB 3.0/1 port on the motherboard). I already strongly suspected it was going to be the case as in the Linux dmesg output during boot I saw that the kernel was unable to access a USB port ("usb 3-4: device descriptor read/64, error -110"; "usb 3-4: device not accepting address 4, error -6"; "usb usb3-port4: unable to enumerate USB device") again. Like always, after I plug it into another USB port, the device is detected and works. It is always a different port that refuses to work. Getting really tired of these gremlins. Why couldn't AMD hire/subcontract competent people to create a chipset? Never experienced any of these issues on my old Kaveri and Carrizo HP laptops or my old Sandy Bridge ThinkCentre. I am glad that I have a laptop with reliable USB that I can use for tasks where reliable USB is absolutely critical because I don't trust my desktop at all when it comes to that. Don't really know what I can do about it. I don't have the money to go Alder Lake. The only option there is is selling this motherboard+CPU combo+CPU fan (and inevitably losing money) and downgrading to something older and/or less powerful (Godavari or maybe a Rocket Lake i3 in the best case scenario).

I would try the radical solution, but not expensive proposed in

I am sorry but I am not buying some random no-name card. I found a Startech version of those but they still have a pretty high percentage of 1-star reviews with people describing even worse USB issues than I am experiencing. So thanks for the smart idea but I don't think this is a good option for me. I don't want to waste any money on this frankly. Better to save the money for a replacement.

I will be buying a new keyboard soon that I think will suit me better (and my current one is 8 years old already anyway) and it comes with a PS/2 adapter and my motherboard comes with PS/2 keyboard port, so I will use that so I at least don't lose my keyboard anymore.

I am really not amused by this issue. I was willing to accept some teething problems but this is a 4-year-old CPU/chipset now so they should have been long gone. This is completely unacceptable for a mid range CPU and a high-end chipset. Thumbs up to Biostar though for continuing to provide UEFI updates with a new AGESA for this motherboard (and still including a PS/2 port). Furthermore, AMD have demonstrated that they aren't any better than Intel when it comes to anti-consumer behavior but rather that it is just a matter of having the means, so I see no reason why my next CPU should not be Intel again (although I actually hope we will see affordable ARM or RISC-V (micro)ATX motherboards with UEFI/ACPI soon).
