This morning we got our hands on the BETA version of the upcoming BIOS update for our ASRock x370 Professional Gaming motherboard and we couldn’t wait to finally see if memory compatibility and overclocking were in line with AMDs promises for AGESA 18.104.22.168.
First of we’d like to remind you all that we were not able to get out G.SKill Trident-Z RGB (F4-3200C14D-16GTZR) anywhere near the 3200 MHz these modules should be able to deliver. It was simply impossible to get everything stable and we had to adjust the baseclock to at least reach 3100MHz+. But the timings were not what they should have been.
So now let’s take a peek at our first test (boy were we excited):
As you can see we were not only able to finally get to 3200 MHz, but way past this as well. The XMP-settings worked out of the box and the 3600 MHz just needed small adjustments to timings (see the image) and a small increase in SOC-voltage.
Even though the current version (L.2.36) ist still a beta it shows quite nicely where we’re heading. Further tests will follow to see how the new microcode affects the overall performance.
To show what is coming with Agesa 22.214.171.124 AMD released some information:
