Yeah just load default settings and flash the new bios with EZ Flash 3.
Ah yea of course, but it was more like, how do you get a BIOS sooner than that ASUS can list it on their support page?

And thanks! Good to know that just resetting to default settings and doing the BIOS update like a 'regular' update should technically work.

Ah, damn, yea might wait up for a less 'beta-ish' AGESA update. I am always hoping for better compatibility and maybe even some slight performance increases in some cases with new BIOS updates/AGESA updates, but this doesn't seem to be the case though. I am not having any problems with what I am on now anyway (modded 4207) and my Ryzen 2600 is serving me well, so I would not need support for Ryzen 3xxx anyway (at least, not day 1, but you never know, an 8 core with higher clocks, or maybe even a 12 core is always welcome, for the right price).

Can the degraded performance be in any way related to Spectre/Meltdown fixes? This will be interesting, as Microsoft is now also testing new software solutions with even less of an performance impact (which was already practically nill for AMD) in the newest builds of Windows 10. Maybe this AGESA version has some fixes in this regard with the new mitigation-approach in Windows 10 19H1?

Tried. Ran CB20 two times, the scores are about the same and my overclock is stable as always.

So far so good.

BTW: The New 970 EVO NVME is already installed and freaking fast!!

My 1800x OC
Win10 Pro / PRIME X370 PRO / 1800x @ 4.05Ghz - BIOS 4012
TPUII / 40.5x / 1.425v Vcore / SOC 1v
CPU LLC3 and SOC LLC3 / CPU and SOC Phase control = Extreme / CPU Current Cap. 130% BIAS=CB11.5 (CB15 score 1780)

CB20

BIOS Performance BIAS

AUTO = 3674pt

CB11 = 3937 (my highest ever)

So, no problem with BIOS 4406

My Firestrike score is around 500/600 points below normal. Tested three times.

My GPU score is better while my CPU score is a tad lower indeed. Not a deal breaker for me. Soon we'll have blazing fast new CPUs

Newest on the left, old on the right.

Got the same score as well in Cinebench R20. My Hynix M-die 16GB kit cannot get stable at 3200 MT/s but at least I can do 3066 with lower timings. I wasn't expecting much since there were no new microcodes or optimizations for Raven Ridge.

So, it seems like there was still space for the new CPUs in a 16mb BIOS after all.

On x470 pro this BIOS killed PBO, not working at all, no effect whatsoever. Some instability when OC-ed.

I'm just very glad to have a BIOS for "upcoming CPUs", that confirms the X370 will support Zen 2

We have to wait and see if it will support a 16 core Zen2. If so we're golden, if not, I will need to get a new MOBO.

If it will support Zen2 16-core with significantly reduced performance compared to x570, I will move. Also PCIe 4 may not be available at full speed and/or will be buggy. I am not expecting easy move like from 1700 to 2700x how it was in my case.
