AMD over the weekend reportedly released the AGESA V2 PI 1.2.0.7 microcode to motherboard vendors and PC OEMs. This particular version of AGESA gains importance to those on Windows 11, as it corrects a performance-stuttering issue caused due to frequent polling of the fTPM by the OS. The new version of AGESA is also bound for AMD 300-series chipset motherboards, where it adds official (stable) support for Ryzen 5000 series processors, letting those on the 5-year old platform enjoy an IPC uplift as much as 60% (Zen 3 vs. Zen). 1.2.0.7 is also rumored to address certain stability issues with the Ryzen 7 5800X3D, and enables BCLK overclocking on the chip, as long as the processor doesn't draw more than 1.35 V in the Vcore voltage domain. It's now over to the motherboard vendors and PC OEMs, to encapsulate 1.2.0.7 with their firmware and release to end-users.

Good news, this makes the switch from Windows 10 to 11 so much more attractive, especially if you own a 5800X3D.

I did some looksies, BIOS previously labelled as betas suddenly got the beta tag removed - so it seems this is the official release that should reach all boards

Asrock seem way, way behind on this. Asus and Gigabyte x370 have this, while most asrocks havent had an update in over a year, so they have no x3D support at all :/

To my knowledge, no vendor has ever published a BIOS with a beta status of 1.2.0.7. The BIOS status may have been beta, but AGESA has always been stable. So I don't understand why it's news now that AMD has made it available, since almost all manufacturers have already released BIOSes containing it.

Ok great, but I have trouble finding ANY reason to switch from 10 to 11....like there are no updates on the updates as to if its now ok to switch over

What kind of stability problems does 5800X3D have that 1.2.0.7 fixes?

Im running 1.2.0.6 with 5800X3D and it's stable.

In my B450 Tomahawk with a 3600X going from 1006 to 1207 i lost noticeable ST and MT performance according to cpu-z, games and benchmarks showed fps drops, went back to 1203 it is much closer to 1006, and support Zen3.

Correct - but AMD wouldnt let them release it as a final BIOS until they said it was out of beta

We could have had 1.2.0.7b/c/d/e etc, like we have seen in the past

...or you could just not run Windows 11, the abandoned touchscreen interface redesign that nobody asked for as a remake of "Windows 10; The last version of Windows we'll ever make".

We keep getting told that Alder Lake's P-cores need Windows 11's scheduler to run at their best, and that all of the stuttering and performance issues in W11 are due to changes to to scheduler. But if you search for articles, you'll largely find evidence that Alder Lake runs better on W10 than it does on W11.

The new BIOS for ASROCK AB350M Pro4 is very good. (AGESA Combo V2 PI 1.2.0.7)
INTEL platform has a video capture board that only works with the PCIe bus directly connected to the CPU.

But with AMD's new BIOS, it works in any slot.
boost clock seems to be missing about 25MHz, but it is not a problem for me.

Nah, after using it a month I prefer it over 10, mainly for little reasons like some right-click shortcuts.

Odd ASRock are usually first.

1.2.0.6 has been released in the past year though, but its labelled beta so right at the bottom of their download page. Just checked 1.2.0.6 supports the chip, they released it publically for my board days after I beta tested it for them.

I personally don't like Windows 11 because of the way the context menus are setup, always having to hit show more options.

?? My x370 had 1207 in April. Is V2 any different?

“it adds official (stable) support for Ryzen 5000 series processors, letting those on the 5-year old platform enjoy an IPC uplift as much as 60% (Zen 3 vs. Zen).”

that’s some serious IPC. I thought I would expect 20% from my 1700 to a 5600G/5700G??

StartAllBack fixes that along with a lot of other stuff that's broken in Windows 11 just like how similar software fixes the glaring issues on Windows 10.
