ASUS starts providing AGESA version BIOS

Last month, ASUS released a Beta version of BIOS for its X670/B650 series motherboards, based on AGESA, primarily in preparation for the upcoming Ryzen 8000G series. Recently, ASUS introduced a new Beta version of BIOS for the X670E motherboards, built on AGESA, which further optimizes support for the new processors.

This BIOS update introduces two key enhancements: an update to AMD ComboAM5 1102a RC1 and overall improvements in system and platform performance. Additionally, it addresses issues related to the detection of M.2 devices. Currently, the firmware is exclusive to high-end X670E motherboards, encompassing the ROG Crosshair, ROG STRIX, TUF, and ProArt series.

The AMD Ryzen 8000G series APUs, compatible with existing AM5 motherboards, are set to launch on January 31st. The initial release includes four models targeting the mainstream and entry-level markets: Ryzen 7 8700G, Ryzen 5 8600G, Ryzen 5 8500G, and Ryzen 3 8300G. However, the Ryzen 3 8300G will be supplied to OEM manufacturers, with market availability expected in the first quarter of 2024.

Many motherboard manufacturers have already released Beta version BIOS updates for their AM5 motherboards to support the AMD Ryzen 8000G series APUs and official versions are expected to be released soon.
