Following the release of the Ryzen 5800X3D last month, this has undoubtedly seen a pretty notable resurgence in popularity for AMD and particularly so among consumers looking to get one big (and possibly last) hurrah out of their current AM4 socket hardware. Given its incredible performance in gaming, which legitimately managed to beat the Intel i9-12900K in the majority of tests, it is, without a doubt (and putting the i9-12900KS to one side) the best gaming processor currently on the market.
With a new CPU, however, this has clearly required AM4 motherboard manufacturers to release new BIOS updates to look to support the chipset. – In regards to Biostar, however, while beta versions have been available, to date, there was no (shall we say) officially rubber-stamped final release.
Following an official announcement, however, Biostar has confirmed the release of its AGESA 18.104.22.168 BIOS firmware update for its B550/A520/B450/A320 models! – Yes, official 5800X3D support is here as well as a key fix for a known fTPM issue!
Biostar AGESA 22.214.171.124 BIOS Update – B550/A520/B450/A320
As part of the announcement, Biostar has said:
“BIOSTAR’s latest firmware rollout targets their AM4-based 500, 400, and 300-series motherboards with the latest AMD AGESA 126.96.36.199 BIOS firmware update. The new BIOS patch comprehensively resolves all the major and minor issues of the AMD AM4 lineup, including the stuttering issue with fTPM on the AMD Ryzen platform. Furthermore, the BIOS update also adds full compatibility to the latest Ryzen 2022 releases, including the brand new Ryzen 7 5800X3D CPU.
BIOSTAR’s B550/A520/B450/A320 series motherboards currently get full AGESA 188.8.131.52 BIOS update, and BIOSTAR plans to further extend the BIOS support to their X570/X470/X370/B350 series motherboards soon.”
