ASRock releases AMD AGESA PI1007 BIOS

ASRock has announced the introduction of a new BIOS based on AMD AGESA PI1007, enabling its AM5 motherboards to support DDR5 memory with a single capacity of 24GB and 48GB, encompassing the X670E/B650E/B650/A620 platforms.

Earlier this year, various major motherboard manufacturers have already released the BIOS for Intel’s 600/700 series motherboards, allowing motherboards equipped with 4 DIMMs to increase the maximum memory capacity from 128GB to 192GB, and 2 DIMM motherboards from 64GB to 96GB. After updating this BIOS version, ASRock’s AM5 motherboards are equipped with the same support, providing enthusiasts with optimal performance and compatibility.

In addition to more extensive memory capacity support, the new BIOS based on AMD AGESA PI1007 has also implemented CPU voltage protection updates. ASRock advises users to upgrade the AM5 motherboard BIOS to the latest version to obtain the most recent technical revisions. Recent news about the sudden burning of the Ryzen 7000X3D series processors has attracted the attention of many players due to the chip voltage escalating to unsafe levels.

According to AMD’s design specifications, the Ryzen 7000X3D series CPUs do not fully support overclocking or excessive voltage adjustments, including CPU Ratio and CPU Vcore voltage. However, AMD EXPO technology can optimize memory performance by appropriately increasing the CPU SoC voltage, ensuring system stability when operating at higher memory frequencies. AMD suggests setting the CPU Vcore voltage of the Ryzen 7000X3D series CPUs within a safe range to minimize potential CPU damage caused by inappropriate overclocking or pressure increase. For safety considerations, restrictions will also be applied to the CPU SoC voltage of the standard Ryzen 7000 series CPUs.
