MSI X470 Gaming M7 beta bios ?
« on: 17-October-18, 04:44:15 »

Hi, just wondering if any of you mods have a new beta bios for the MSI X470 Gaming M7 AC motherboard, I hoping, as ive seen Gigabyte and ASUS release one that allows you to separate nvme RAID from SATA devices, that MSI will also follow suit in the next bios release, where you can just have nvme RAID0 and have the rest of your sata devices in just normal sata mode rather than having to set them up as a separate RAID volume.

I have seen nor heard anything about a beta bios. We have not had one since April. I do not know if it is a new policy or not but there have been few beta bios releases for users here for quite a while.

AGESA 1.0.0.6 released for my X370 Gaming Pro Carbon. Installing now. But I do not see a new BIOS for our X470 Gaming M7 AC. AMD is actively releasing chipset updates for the X370, X470 and X399 boards. Will be updating that next.

That 1.0.0.6 on the X370 page will be summit-Pi, its been out for ages, the only update to bios I see for that board is to support Athlon 220 CPU's, that will just be a microcode update

The 1.0.0.6 we are all waiting for is pinnacle-Pi, will probably be named 1.0.0.6c

AMD uses the same version numbers for their AGESA updates, they just change the last letter based on Summit-Pi and Pinnacle-Pi etc etc so AGESA updates for the new Zen2 7nm CPU's will oncew again go back to 1.0.0.1d 1.0.0.2d etc.

[font="Segoe UI","Helvetica Neue","Liberation Sans","Nimbus Sans L",Arial,sans-serif]thanks for the insights to how the version numbers are documented and which CPU's are addressed in the change.[/font]
I do not recall ever seeing HWinfo64 or CPU-Z including the alpha character version level at the end of the AGESA number in their programs.

and here I thought that was a meaningful update

They don't need to state the end corresponding letter within CPU-z, it states if its summit PI or Pinnacle PI etc.

The letter doesn't denote anything other than a revision for that specific AGESA. It does NOT denote if it's "SummitPi" "RavenPi", etc.....

SummitPi actually had 1.0.0.6b so that right there kills the theory.

CPU-Z and other utilities won't be able to denote any letter revision unless it's included within the version string.
All the manufacturer's have been lazy about including that in the version string, making it very difficult for end users to know if it's 1.0.0.6, 1.0.0.6b, etc....
