It’s been revealed that MSI will be rolling out a new BIOS update that will allow lucky owners of AMD’s first 3D-V-Cache processor, the Ryzen 7 5800X3D, to boost its performance via BCLK overclocking on the manufacturer’s MEG X570 motherboards. The new firmware will reportedly be rolled out in just a few days for the MEG X570 GODLIKE, MEG X570 ACE, and MEG X570 Unify motherboards.
MSI To Enable AMD Ryzen 7 5800X3D BCLK Overclocking With Upcoming AGESA 220.127.116.11 BIOS, Benchmarks Show 5% Gain With 4.86 GHz Overclock (Wccftech)
This isn’t the first time that we are hearing that the AMD Ryzen 7 5800X3D can overclock. We’ve already seen the chip breaking past the 5 GHz on the MSI MEG X570 GODLIKE motherboard and posting up to 12% performance gains with the overclock applied. Now we can confirm that MSI’s MEG X570 GODLIKE motherboard & other options with external clock generators have the ability to allow overclocking on the 3D V-Cache chip and MSI will be releasing a new BIOS that will let users do just that.
One cool feature about the upcoming BIOS, more specifically for the MSI MEG X570 GODLIKE, is that it will offer a new ‘CPU Base Clock (MHz)’ tuning option within it. This will be available on the AGESA 18.104.22.168 based 1H1 BIOS and users can adjust the base clock of their chip for overclocking.
The benchmarks shared above indicate that MSI MEG X570 motherboard users should be able to use the upcoming BCLK overclocking option to improve the single-threaded performance of the Ryzen 7 5800X3D by up to 7% and its multi-threaded performance by up to 5%. AMD’s new chip went on sale this Wednesday for $449, but it appears to be out of stock already at most major retailers.
