Some new BIOS date for Ryzen 3000?
- Update AMD ComboPI1.0.0.3
- Support Ryzen 3000 series CPU.


I am using the 1.N3 Combo-AM4 1.0.0.1

Eventually is worrying as I already have my 3000 series cpu. Would be nice to use it. 

Is most odd how lower spec'd boards have a bios and we don't.

There is nothing we can do about it.
Most boards are ready for roll out, they are doing further testing to confirm all is fine before they release it for the public. Unless you want a brick as a result...

Has anyone had a chance to test if the new 3000 series cpu works with the new 1NP bios?

Most of MSI's boards were based on the Tomahawk, or for the X370 series, they were based on the Gaming Pro Carbon.
The X370 titanium, being the highest end board, had more to it than the others. So it's not surprising to see it taking longer than the others.

Had a R7 1700 before and swapped in the new 3700X. At first it was boot looping like crazy but after cmos clear it finally booted at first try. Cpu fan still ramps to 100% every boot but it then settles down soon after. Now up and running with memory at 3200Mhz with 14-14-14-34 timings, no subtimings changed. Installed the new 1.7 chipset drivers and the amd balanced profile is back. CPU-Z bench scored 5617 MT/516 ST. Cinebench 15 scored 2133 MT/207 ST. Core change between 3000Mhz-4400Mhz. Voltage jumps agressively between 0.931-1.494v. Seems like tiny loads ramp up the temps by 10 celcius at desktop. Idle temp is 35c-45c and load temp in multi-threading test was 71c and 58c in single-threaded test with Arctic Freezer 33. Maybe I need a bigger cooler now.

This thread has been *very* quiet... MSI just dropped another beta for the X370.  Anyone testing yet and have input?

Couldn't get memory to boot at rated speed with 7A32v1NU 1.0.0.4 bios. Rolled back to NT 1.0.0.3abba bios and memory is running fine now.

Awesome, thanks for the screenshot @startupsolidclique.   how do you find navigating the BIOS (has the cut down version, yes?)?

Your screenshot shows memory at 2667Mhz, is this a cosmetic fix in this new bios?  I have 3000Mhz RAM with XMP 2.0 and in my task manager it shows at 1467Mhz, but it is running at the 2933Mhz range.

For me, GSE Lite Bios is simple, clean and easy to use. 

Yes, it's fixed the memory speed in the task manager.

Hello,

I'm following this thread for a long time now, but 1st time posting :)

I see that Beta Bios 7A32v1NV is out since Dec. 3rd.
Did someone tested it already ? I updated and stuck to 1NT (1.0.03abba) bios a few days ago when I installed my R7 3800x, due to numerous user reports here and on /r that it was the most stable one.
As far as I can see, it's super stable for me. Boost working, RAM @3200 OK (was already working fine with XMP and my R7 1800x though), temps, etc ...

This new one still comes with AGESA 1.0.0.4 (SMU v46.54), 
Compared to 1NU, the only addition to the release notes is :
 - Improved OC memory compatibility.
So one may hope that it solves the POST/RAM issues that were reported with the previous 1NU.

I don't flash too much (was still on 1J previously), and never downgraded before, so I am worried that if something goes bad with the new BIOS, i'd be f*cked.
If someone is willing to test, please let us know :)
Cheers

Well... I took a leap of faith, and updated.
So far everything seems OK.

I'm tempted to try and tune memory settings now, which I didn't before with the Ryzen 7 1800x, because XMP@3200 MHz CL14 was the sweet spot.
With Ryzen 7 3800X, things are different now, and I understand that 3600 MHz CL16 or better CL14 would give the best results, so I'll try that.

Clocks observed with Ryzen Master  during CPU-z benchmark :
1NT :
  • Single Thread peak : 4445 MHz
  • Multi thread peak : 4223 MHz

1NV :
  • Single Thread peak : 4548 MHz
  • Multi thread peak : 4214 MHz

As for the results for anyone interested.
