AMD’s new 1.0.0.4 AGESA update reportedly increases all-core boost clocks

AMD’s latest AGESA update has started to become available in beta BIOS files, offering Ryzen users new bug fixes and the potential to improve the performance of Ryzen 3rd Gen processors.

Computerbase.de has recently tested AMD’s AGESA 1.0.0.4 update on an ASRock X470 motherboard, and have found that while single-core boost clocks speeds remain the same as AMD’s AGESA 10.0.3 ABBA update, it offers users an increase in all-core clock speeds, at least on their Ryzen 7 3800X processor. 

That’s right, AMD’s latest AGESA update delivers a 50MHz clock speed boost on all cores, increasing the CPU’s all-core clock speed from 4.245GHz to 4.325GHz. This is an increase of less than 2%, but it is nonetheless a positive step for AMD. This testing was conducted without Precision Boost Overdrive activated, where the only non-stock setting as the enablement of a DDR4-3200 CL14-14-14-34 XMP profile.    

While this testing is far from conclusive, as it only tests a single motherboard and a single processor, it showcases what could be another notable step forward for AMD’s AGESA code. In a recent livestream, MSI confirmed that AMD had AGESA plans which extended to AGESA 1.0.0.7, which means that even more improvements are on the way.

Since Ryzen’s inception, AMD has been working behind the scenes to get the best performance out of their processors. From AGESA updates to driver and OS updates, AMD has been focused on delivering better performance out of their existing products. Only time will tell how far AMD will push the performance of their latest products.
