The May update SHOULD help in this regard. Unlike what you see on the Intel based motherboards, where they have been evolving for years, AM4 is a NEW platform. As a result, there has also been a bit more transparency on how the process works. From my observations, the chipset maker has the base code for the motherboard chipset which is then distributed to motherboard makers. The motherboard makers then make changes and adjustments for the motherboards, adjust settings, etc.
AMD has been doing a fair bit of work updating that base code, and every time they make a release, it goes out to the motherboard makers, who then need to go through it all, tweak it, and make sure the changes they applied to previous versions will work with the new version. It seems like doing the same thing over and over again. So, with the "current" release from AMD, we saw 0079, 0081, 0082, and 0083 from Asus for the Crosshair VI Hero, each with their own adjustments. The May update has a major focus on getting RAM speeds up to where people feel they should be, and Elmor has even indicated we should be able to hit 3200 with most 3200 rated memory.
