MSI will release AGESA BIOS very soon

MSI will release BIOS estimated using AGESA version for their AM4 motherboards. The new BIOS will provide overclocking capabilities for the AMD Ryzen 7 5800X3D. Of course, the overclocking mentioned here does not mean that you can change the multiplier of the processor like other Ryzen processors. The frequency multiplication of Ryzen 7 5800X3D is locked by AMD, and it is basically impossible for the board factory to lift this restriction. The overclocking provided by MSI is a more traditional overclocking function.

The overclocking of Ryzen 7 5800X3D is actually related information after the processor is released. MSI previously used MEG X570 GODLIKE motherboard to increase the clock of the processor to 5.1GHz, and the performance increased by 12% after overclocking. Previously, the 1.G5T2 BIOS based on AGESA Patch C was used, and now this new BIOS based on AGESA allows ordinary users to do the same.

AGESA BIOS will be available first to MSI’s 500 and 400 series AMD motherboards in the next few days, and it will be pushed to the earlier 300 series in the next few months, which will allow the earliest AM4 motherboards to use the latest Ryzen 5000 series processors.

Of course, not all motherboards support the FSB overclocking function of the Ryzen 7 5800X3D, including only the three motherboards MEG X570 GODLIKE, MEG X570 ACE, and MEG X570 Unify, which may be related to the fact that these motherboards have external clock generators.

MSI showed that the FSB of the Ryzen 7 5800X3D has been increased to 107MHz. At this time, the clock of the processor is 4.86GHz, which makes it increase by 5% in the multi-thread test of R23, and increase by 7% in a single thread.

It should be noted that increasing the FSB may affect the stability of PCI-E, SATA, and M.2 devices because the FSB frequency is linked to these, in particular, NVIDIA GeForce RTX 30/20 series graphics cards are very sensitive to FSB overclocking and may become unstable after increasing the processor FSB.
