Motherboard vendors have started rolling out firmware to support AMD’s Ryzen 7 5800X3D processor set to launch late next month. ASUS and MSI are the first to release the AGESA V2 PI 188.8.131.52b/c BIOS which also includes improved performance for the 5800X3D, in addition to fine-tuning system compatibility and stability. The ROG Crosshair VIII Extreme has officially received the update, with users already able to download the latest firmware.
MSI’s AGESA 184.108.40.206c BIOS has also surfaced, albeit unofficially. It improves performance over its predecessor, the 220.127.116.11 which supposedly made it worse. The firmware shared by HXL includes the AGESA V2 PI 18.104.22.168c for the MSI X570 Godlike, MSI X570X Ace Max, and the MSI X570S Torpedo Max.
Meanwhile, @momomo_us has spotted early listings of the Ryzen 7 5800X3D and the Renoir-X offerings. Keep in mind that these are just placeholders with exaggerated figures, and the final retail prices will be notably lower. The Ryzen 7 5800X3D is expected to retail for $449.
