For anyone with a 2200G and/or MSI B350M Mortar, here's my feedback on ryzen 3000 compatible BIOS
So i kept updating to the newest bios like a week after they got out and newest drivers
I think the last time i saw actual difference in performance or stability was in late 2018 where some things like offset voltage and gfx overclock were added and RAM oc improved, but a new video bios was included in april 2019, so i figured i should stay up to date.
Now with every update since that(7A37v1M1), or July update(7A37v1MM), everything appeared to be working as it should, like boosting cpu/gpu or ram overclocks, but the system kept behaving really erratic, the bios navigation became laggy the moment i enabled UEFI instead of CSM, firefox browsing and windows navigation had some small delays and i could feel the mouse lag was inconsistent in games.
At first i thought it was due to new boost, so i disabled c-states/cnq and used 3.7ghz static and the whole system kept being unstable at known stable settings, so i tweaked volts, reduced memory clocks-timings, i tried different windows power plans, there was some improvement in games, but nothing that i could notice without testing first.
I even tried running everything at default, which also had the same weird stutters.
Now after half a year of beta-testing, i give up on newer BIOS, I have just reverted back to the last bios using AGESA "PinnaclePi-188.8.131.52"(7A37v1K) and i felt the differece the moment i entered the bios and then in windows, i will stay with this version unless there is a bios with specific fixes for raven in the changelog.
Even my overclocks applied instantly, it used to require 1-2 reboots to complete memory training, i didnt even have to change procODT, everything was auto-detected.
Boot times are back to 8-10sec from 12-18.
Browsing seem to be back to being super-smooth and snappy as it was when i first bought these parts and i dont have any courage left to test anything else.
So...for anyone else experiencing black screen in first boot in BIOS(the only thing which was consistent on all newer BIOS), try reverting back to the last known BIOS before the new ComboPI AGESA got released.
I dont know if all this is specific to the board or the cpu, but i posted just in case someone has the same issues.
