How to get your motherboard BIOS ready for new AMD Ryzen 5000 processors?

Today marks the availability date of the new Zen 3 based Ryzen 5000 series desktop processors and this means you can upgrade to AMD’s best CPUs to get superior gaming as well as productivity-based performance.

Well, to use these CPUs you need to have a compatible motherboard as well and even if you have the latest 500 series motherboard you have to get your BIOS ready. So, here are the official steps from AMD to help make your motherboard BIOS ready for new Ryzen 5000 series processors:

Getting ready right now is easy:

  1. Have an AMD 500 Series motherboard.
  2. Update your motherboard’s BIOS to a version containing AGESA 1.1.0.0. This will make sure your AMD Ryzen 5000 Series processor has full performance and the best experience.
    1. Or if you bought a new CPU and motherboard together today: you can easily perform a BIOS update via USB Flashback (if needed). This will allow you to update the BIOS even when the installed processor is not compatible with the current BIOS. You may not even need a CPU installed at all! Consult your manual for details on how to perform a BIOS update via USB.

And if you have an AMD 400 Series motherboard, you should see BIOS updates starting in January, 2021 (learn more here). We’ll let you know what to look for as we get closer to that date.

What’s new in AGESA 1.1.0.0 for Ryzen 5000 Series:

  • General performance improvements for many types of workloads
  • Improved support for loading and applying overclocked memory profiles
  • Improved BIOS overclocking functionality
  • Improved USB hotplug detection
  • Improved SATA device detection on select SATA ports
  • Adds support for Eco Mode for automatic TDP reduction (AMD Ryzen Master)

Overall, this AGESA is designed to bring the Ryzen 5000 Series to the full performance and experience intended by AMD. Performance optimization is really the hero of this release, so make sure you grab the update for your motherboard when you’re up and running on “Zen 3.”

But that’s not all! We have an exciting roadmap beyond AGESA 1.1.0.0 and wanted to give you a small preview of what’s coming in future BIOS updates.

Beyond AGESA 1.1.0.0 for Ryzen 5000 Series:

  • Returning support for negative core voltage offsets (“undervolting”) with all-new functionality for better frequency, voltage, and performance tuning
  • Additional optimization for performance and stability at ~2000MHz fabric clock. While not all processors are innately capable of reaching this frequency, our tuning will help stabilize the overclock on capable samples2 —good luck!

What’s an AGESA?

An AGESA is “AMD Generic Encapsulated System Architecture.” It defines the nucleus of BIOS options and features for an AMD chipset and processor. On top, motherboard vendors build a final interactive BIOS with their own code and board-specific proprietary features.

A newer AGESA can enable new features, new BIOS options, and additional performance tuning. When necessary, AMD develops and releases new AGESA packages for motherboard makers so they can develop a new round of BIOS updates for your motherboard. Not all BIOS releases for a motherboard need or use an updated AGESA.
