Beta BIOS 3008 for C6H/C6HWIFI/C6E:

AGESA 1.0.7.1, temperature offset fixed after S3 resume, GPU Post function fixed, 0d with some GPUs fixed

C6H Test BIOS 0020 with AGESA 1007 (405200c4e299c1eed9a0044edec9aba51f37cee1d70caabe40b9485b0604521a)

In order to get back to an older version after flashing, you have to use USB BIOS Flashback.

Let me know how it works for you, especially regarding cold boot issues. Any confirmed bugs in the bug report form please




Beta BIOS 1501

* Workaround for some CPUs stuck at 22x ratio if using override voltage
* Fixes PCIEX4 bandwidth setting getting lost after power is removed
* Same DRAM boot behavior as 1403 (no cold boot fix)
* Same DRAM profiles as in 9920
* Still has the Vcore value issue when booting with Offset Mode and switching to Manual Mode

UEFI build 9920 for the C6H:

* Improved DRAM cold boot, results in slightly longer POST time
* Fix for CPU Ratio stuck at 22x on some CPUs when using Vcore override/offset
* SenseMi Skew is now Disabled by default. If you want to return to previous behavior set SenseMi Skew = Enabled and Offset = 272.
* Added DRAM profiles for Samsung B-based DIMMs with tuned subtimings, including The Stilt's settings



C6H beta UEFI 1403

* Fixed W_PUMP and AIO_PUMP speeds during POST
* Fixed Fan tuning sometimes failing
* Fixed a few issues with AMD USB3.1 ports
* Some tuning on DRAM settings, let us know how they work for you. tRDRD_Sc is still at 5 above 3500 MHz as it helps with stability. For performance you want to force this to 1. We'll consider changing this in future releases as the performance impact can be quite noticeable in certain applications.

An update on DRAM Boot Voltage, currently it should be 1.35V by default if the DRAM Voltage is changed. So if you're setting DRAM Voltage to above 1.35V, you might want to sync this setting. Additionally there might be scenarios where you will have better luck by syncing DRAM Boot Voltage to DRAM Voltage even at lower values.




AGESA 1006 RC4 official UEFI 1401

Just tested quickly 3600 memory and cold booting, seems good but you guys are going to have to help me test this before we have a judgement. Seems CPU temp reading from SIO now has -20*C offset for XFR enabled CPUs.





UEFI build 1107





Older test builds:


Test BIOS 0079

Test BIOS with new AGESA 1004a, with a couple of bugfixes. Up to 5% performance increases in specific applications. Also has P-state overclocking working with BCLK increase. If you want to keep C-states, make sure to set Advanced\AMD CBS\Zen Common Options\Global C-state Control = Enabled. There are two new settings under AMD CBS\UMC Common Options\DDR4 Common Options\ you might want to take a look at, Fail_CNT and ProcODT. Fail_CNT decides how many times to retry when DRAM training fails (F9 -> 0d), default is now 1. ProcODT can help improve your DRAM overclocking. There's a setting available also on previous BIOSes under AMD CBS\UMC Common Options\DRAM Memory Mapping named BankGroupSwap. If you have 2x Single-Rank modules you can try setting this to Disabled and you might see some performance boost in certain applications.

Test BIOS 0081

Same as 0079 but has ProcODT default = 53.3 ohm

Test BIOS 0082

Same as 0081 but with a DRAM compability patch for the below part numbers

does anyone know if the BIOS improved the cold boot issue? Anyone reported any improvement at all in stability or overclocking

3008 is a beta release, but in asus they nothing referes to it. it should be stable release i think. Anyone notice if memory bandwidth improved?

I got my memory to 3200 that never worked before , and CPU at 4.0 with default V 1.3, so yes lots improvements, if you go back 3-5 pages you can read ppl responses to it, realist version same as beta ... same file same data.
Hope it helps

yup, it was like that yesterday too, doesn't matter what region you try it doesn't work.

The site works as intended as long as all tracking protection is disabled. It has to do with a metric they implemented from YaHoo.Com.

As far as the new chipset drivers from AMD, 17.40, they are a must. The most benefit will be seen by those that utilize a Nvme drive.

Bios 3008, have nothing but praise for it. Higher oc at a lower voltage. Ram at same settings is at a lower voltage. RTT and CAD bus settings all left on auto. No longer chasing the whole 3466 CAS14 train. Getting better results with CAS15 at 3466 (Stilt's memory preset settings). Only place have seen a difference between CAS14 and 15 is synthetic benchmarks, otherwise for my setup, CAS15 performs and flows better (the increase of 0.7ns of latency, 64.9 to 65.6, is of no consequence).

so is the 3008 bios at the Asus site any different then the beta one has anybody tested it? let me know because I had problems with the beta one

This is the BETA one. I cant see the 11XX and the 13XX, they skiped them (GERMAN SUPPORT SIDE). I think the final BIOS will carry the number 19XX.

Giving 3008 a thumbs up! I set ram to ddr-3200 (that works for the first time), 1800X cpu multiplier to x19 for 3.9ghz, and nothing else, and it's running well. Minimum frames/sec in DX:MD benchmark went from 49 to 59 from the last time I ran it, which I have to attribute to how simple it was to bump core & ram speed. I would ask, if it's at all possible, for more bios notes or documentation on the plethora of bios acronyms.

Also! A Headsup on new chipset drivers from AMD, http://support.amd.com/en-us/download/chipset?os=Windows%2010%20-%2064
I have a strong impression that load times from my NVME M.2 drive for DX:MD save games are noticeably faster, can anyone confirm?
