I got the new chipset drivers, then 1903...got new 3600 DDR4..doesn't play well with 1st gen Ryzen 1700. Settled at 3400 with 18CL...

Also got the newest BIOS on my X370 Killer SLI/AC from Asrock..and while doing all that...figured, let's blow an hour putting new Radeon drivers on too. (Serious issue with Vega 56 going black screen during installation*I think it's power settings*...been doing it last few updates.)

So Cinebench decreased about 60 points on average (topping at 1730ish on 3.9 with 2800 RAM) to not being able to crack 1680...1670 was more realistic.

With RAM that's 600Mhz higher...

The intent was to prep for July 7..

The result was gray hair, loss of sleep and was late for work today.

They were like, "Were you gaming last night?" the reply...all I did was install some RAM......

Well my sold 2700x at 4.25ghz and ddr4 3200 at 3480mhz cl14 was doing better after 1903. Yes Firestrike which was brought up increased more so the physics and combined score. Cb15 got better results and I saw a nice jump in multicore Geekbench 4. So Im pretty happy with the update.

1903 will increase performance but we have to wait for new drivers which will be released on 7/7 when Ryzen 3xxx comes out. This was confirmed to me directly by AMD.

@1usmus has pointed out that to get the full benefit of the Windows update (1903), you will need a bios with AGESA ver 1.0.0.1 or newer.

There just isn't much data yet. From what I've seen, especially with those using AGESA 1.0.0.1 or better, is that there is some improvement, but it seems (so far) to be in quite specific workloads. While some games might see improvements, others may well see none. Most people seem to get that improvement in FireStrike, so it seems that loads similar to that might see improvement too.

We will all find out soon!

Current Bios - 3103

I guess all X570 will come with AGESA 1.0.0.1 from the start?

Updated to 1903 a while back. A few hours ago I flashed the bios on this X370 board to AGESA 1.0.0.1. So far it feels a bit snappier on the desktop, DX12 gaming is definitely improved, but it has issues with the Creative sound card. It's getting the occasional stutter and buzz. Possibly a latency issue caused by driver conflicts.


Also, because of security changes (?) I lost my password and PIN. Setting up new ones was by far the longest and most frustrating part of it all.

You should do the testing now, as performance gain suppose to be seen with new drivers.

Indeed I have. Installed the new chipset drivers and latest video drivers. The biggest improvement came in the I/O performance. Overall it is more stable too.
