I need some assistance from the owners of ASUS ROG Crosshair VIII Hero (WI-FI) which is x570 board. I have AMD 5800x processor.
I cannot seem to locate the Curve Optimizer in the bios.

I have the latest bios installed version 3204 which is contains AMD AM4 AGESA V2 PI 1.2.0.0 and according to what I read, AMD already introduced Curve Optimizer in AGESA 1.1.8.0.

My understanding is that ASUS should have released Curve Optimizer already but I don't find it anywhere in the bios.

Am I missing something or ASUS did not release this feature for the ASUS ROG Crosshair VIII Hero (WI-FI) yet? :confused:
Any owners of this mainboard here maybe can help to check this. Maybe ASUS renamed it to something else. :p


Please note I own ASUS ROG Crosshair VIII Hero (WI-FI) and not the ROG Crosshair VIII Dark Hero. The Dark Hero is the newer version of my board which comes from day one with this feature.

This is my board:
ROG Crosshair VIII Hero (WI-FI) | ROG Crosshair | Gaming Motherboards|ROG - Republic of Gamers|ROG Global (asus.com)


I can find PBO in three places in the ASUS bios as posted below but I cannot find Curve Optimizer anywhere.

In the AMD Overclocking section, the PBO option, set it to advanced, then you will see the option there.

Thanks a lot for the help.

I found it now. :rockout:
It seems that I was blind and did not see that there is a Advance option there. o_O

Now the real fun starts with the tuning of the 5800x. :lovetpu:



Edited:
Here it is.
As you said I put PBO to Advance in AMD Overclock and all the options shown here appear:
