Ya have had a look it is not quite ready for release yet benchmarks were down by about 10%


Screenshot of Current BETA AGESA 1.2.0.3c and AGESA 1.2.0.5
you will notice the 2000-APU and 3000 CPU and APU chips have a Code update in version 1.2.0.5

Can you tell how do you know the benchmark is down by 10%?
Do you enable PBO only or manually overclock the CPU? :shocked:

PBO on and Cinebench 20 was down about 300 points from 6900 to 6610

And I had trouble getting pc to boot as well as getting ram stable at 3200.

I'm on a B550 Tomahawk and so far no issues, CB scores are the same in my case.

You on win Ten or Eleven

Not sure what was going on with it but it took several attempts to get PC to boot and even then Boot time was quite slow May have been all the Security settings I have enabled. But will have a look again when I have a bit more time to fiddle with it.

I forgot to grab screenshot of Agesa 1.2.0.5 but Results were about the same for L3 Cache Agesa 12.0.4
Screenshot 2021-10-25 223855.jpg


And this is the Current MSI Beta bios 1.2.0.3c on there Download page for my Motherboard

As you can see there is a somewhat big difference between the L3 Cache Memory for read and copy and write speed still seems way to low with Both of them

hi just flashed yesterday that new bios 7C56v18
previously had same 7C56v17 as you, which is pretty perfect.

new bios's performance bench is ok, no problem at all with temp as well,
but i noticed few USB dropouts with my Motu M2 audio interface,

this is ridiculous cause heard about many problems about with b550 and zen3 ,
but never had issues with b550 gaming plus and 5600x from june 2021
with all previous official Stable bioses till now..

will investigate tomorrow and eventually rollback with previous bios
my system is rock solid, tested and used 24/7 in audio production, photo editing
and gaming as well.

my system:
Win 11 pro
5600x PBO def +CO cooled by Noctua D15
B550 Gaming Plus
2x16gb Ballistix Sport 3000c15 DR @3933c16 1:1
WD Black SN850 500gb
Sabrent Rocket Q 2tb
KFA2 GTX 1070 SNPR EX-OC
Super Flower Leadex III 550w

yes benchs are pretty all same with new bios, CB, aida64 etc.

usb/audio dropouts was presents here, every now and then audio disappear completely for like 1sec
already flashed back previous 7C56v17 and no problem with as usual

if someone want to test new bios and see if it has same usb /audio dropouts like me
would be nice having feedback about

Is Ok with Win 10 no USB dropouts at all and I have Wireless Trackball . Wireless Keyboard and Wireless Audio as well as a External SSD USB drive I use for Win Back up and drive image.
Benchmark seem OK on WIN 10 but were not as good on WIn 11 but I think that was due to a Win 11 BUG running System process in background chewing up over 5% of CPU

did you have ssd nvme pci-ex gen 4 in your pc?

maybe also new bios/agesa want more voltage in the VDDP, VDDG IOD/CCD or VSOC area
that can be, i have all tweaked finely down, and mclk /fclk /uclk @1966
/need to test

with 7C56v18 bios i can bench easely till 2033 1:1 but no matter voltage or memory setting, just not stable,
imc here max stable at 1966
but no usb dropouts however, just not stable..

And should not really have to tweak Any voltage setting for the new bios. A-XMP setting should work without a problem.
I won't be using Win 11 Again till Microsoft get there act together fix Bugs in if with Full AMD systems
All my NVME are Gern 3x4 and full spec in my Sig link

Hi. Currently i'm on 7C56v17, very stable no issues. I did not installed 7C56v18 yet, just came to this thread to get some feedback and for what i've road here i'll stay on 7C56v17 since 7C56v18 seems to dont bring benefits (as far i know). I'm just wondering if i can lower my negative per core offset with this 1.2.0.5 to get even more performance from my 5600x, maybe because this later ill git it a try, if i test it i'll bring freedback here.

Auto voltages for vddg, vddp iod/ccd and soc are setting way too high by the mobo
when push memory /controller /IF to 1900 and more
but yes, if do not know hows they works, better leave Auto.

my system is always been rock solid with all previous past bioses,
OCCT, TM5, Corecycler etc, and obviously in normal use with software and gaming,
only the new 7C56v18 bios give me usb/ dropouts,
never had problems before

asked for nvme gen4 cause in most cases
many people that had usb dropouts in pasts with zen3 +b550 have nvme gen 4
some solved setting pci-ex 3.0 instead, so that can be the issue too

Hi everyone.
I updated the fw on a x570 unify today to the latest beta fw posted.
I am now getting "inaccesable boot device"
Pc won't boot to win 10 in normal or sm.
No further updates or changes have taken place.
Drive is free of disc errors


System overview
5800x
64 gig 3600 ram
Samsung 980 pro nvme for c drive in primary slot.

Refreshed a 3rd time ang got into sm, went to remote to normal...inaccesable boot device.
Back to the boot loop. So...I have no idea.
