AMD AGESA update 1.0.0.6 - Do BIOS updates matter?
 
Let's have a look at AMD's new AGESA update 1.0.0.6 and how much of a performance impact this new code update has on ASUS' X370 Crosshair VI Hero.

Shame you didn't run those gaming benches with faster ram. The main selling point of Agesa 1006 is access to faster than 3200mhz ram speeds and as we all know - that has a massive effect on the latency across the infinity fabric, especially in gaming.

Any chance of running those 3 games @ 1080P again with maybe 3400, 3600 and 4000mhz ram? Of course that is if the board/CPU are actually able to run the ram at those speeds.

This is something that we are looking into. Sadly right now we do not have faster DDR4 to test with, but we are working on acquiring some.

To put it simply this testing is to see if there are any performance benefits from this new update without any hardware changes. From here we will be looking deeper into this new BIOS options and conduct further testing to see where we can gain additional performance.

This testing will act as a platform from which more in-depth testing can be done, hopefully allowing everyone to learn a little more about Ryzen in the process.

Nice, thanks!

In the meantime, I will just sit here and wait for Agesa 1006 to release for the Gigabyte Gaming 5, contrary to some articles online, the current beta bios for gaming 5 is based on Agesa 1005 :(

3000-3200Mhz memory is still likely to be the sweet spot though. That's what I predict anyway. And even if performance scales well past 3200Mhz, the price increase, the low availability, and the high timings for high speed memory might put people off.

I'm running 3466 MHz stable, 3600 Mhz stable for all but stress tests.

Oh and by the way, unless those Corsair sticks are Hynix chips, you should probably not be using 9945, which is really for 4 sticks or some HYnix cases. The recommended version for two sticks of Samsung would be 9943, which should result in better results.

When did you last look? AX370 Gaming 5 is showing BETA F6g (6/2/2017) AGESA 1.0.06

For price/performance I agree. But take the price out of the situation and I think 3666 with low timings (the special GSkill ram I think) is probably the sweet spot and anything after won't benefit, like 4000mhz

3600 is hit and miss even if you have excellent B-die ram. 3466 seems a lot easier to hit. These AGESA updates have a long way to go yet.

If prices for RAM had not risen as they did and Ryzen supported it better, I would probably consider Trident Z's 15 or 16CL 3600Mhz memory. It's not THAT much more money, but it is harder to find the heatsink colour I want (orange/black).
