MSI reveals planned AGESA 1.0.0.4 update for AM4 motherboards – 100 Fixes planned

In the company’s latest MSI Insider stream, the company announced that AMD has plans to release new AGESA code for their AM4 motherboards, updates which would deliver over 100 fixes and improvements. 

So far, MSI has delivered AMD’s AGESA 1.0.0.3 ABBA BIOS to most of its AM4 motherboard lineup, and have plans to release BIOS files with AGESA version 1.0.0.4 in November. It is also claimed that AMD has AGESA update plans that already extend to AGESA version 1.0.0.7. 

AMD’s AGESA code has the potential to address bugs within AMD’s Ryzen series processors and are also capable of offering users improved performance under the right circumstances. Back in 2017, we found that AMD’s AGESA 1.0.0.6  (1st Gen Ryzen) update was able to reduce memory latencies and boost Ryzen’s gaming performance. AMD’s AGESA numbering scheme resets with each generation of Ryzen processors, a factor that only serves to make AMD’s AGESA updates more confusion to customers. 

At this time the 100 fixes/improvements that AGESA version 1.0.0.4 will offer are unknown. Sadly, AMD doesn’t usually release detailed change notes for AGESA updates, so we are unlikely to know what’s changed until after the update releases.
