Following are the main highlights of the AMD AGESA 188.8.131.52 BIOS Firmware:
- Optimized and support AMD Ryzen 5000 series processors.
- Optimized Resizable BAR (Re-Size BAR) function with NVidia Graphics cards.
- Improved AM4 processor compatibility
The AMD Curve Optimizer support will be carried over from AGESA 184.108.40.206 BIOS Firmware but 1usmus & Patrick Schur seem to indicate that there are also going to be a few bug fixes and a number of CPU improvements. We have also learned that the BIOS fixes a hang issue during CPU post.
I said that AGESA 220.127.116.11 contains MAINLY bug fixes and version bumps. btw The improvements for the dLDO injector or CO are not even in the release notes. 😉
