MSI had hinted that AMD’s next AGESA update (Combo PI Patch B) would introduce plenty of new features, and it wasn’t kidding. Following a blog post announcing the availability of that BIOS (and how it could speed up boot times by as much as 20%), DRAM Calculator for Ryzen author @1usmus has revealed additional improvements with a screenshot of MSI’s updated Click BIOS.

New features include a new “CPU Ratio Apply Mode,” which will allow enthusiasts to overclock per CCX without a third-party tool. There are also additional settings for managing voltage, as well as general performance increases.

The BIOS for X570 motherboards will be ready for users to download and update in the end of October. The updated BIOS version supports Ryzen 5 2400G and Ryzen 3 2200G running in X570 platform. On the other hand, it also supports RAID function including SATA- and NVMe-based drives for X570 motherboards. We are still working hard on other existing lineup of 300- and 400-series motherboard and will be released soon in November.
