Thank you so much for clearing that up, sounds to me there is nothing to gain by "upgrading" from MXF to MXIF.

Anyone know what was updated in ASUS Hero X 2004 BIOS? It says "Performance improvements". I wonder if it's just another performance improvement related Melton or whichever security flaw.

I don't have the Hero, I have the Code X, but I think the BIOS updates are essentially the same.

I don't think there was any performance improvements or security fixes IMHO. ASUS neglected to include the latest CPU microcode and Intel Management Engine firmware, which both have significant security vulnerability fixes. Any other changes in the BIOS besides these two would not involve security fixes and I see no evidence for performance improvements.

I updated my Max X Hero (wifi) to BIOS 2004 and have not noticed any improvements or problems. It did update MEI but not CPU ucode. I am on the Fast Ring and my ucode updated to 906EA revision 00B4 when I updated to Windows 10 v1903 build 18917.10000. You can also get the ucode update through a Microsoft update. The exact update Microsoft KB update depends on which version of Windows you are running.

What BIOS do you guys run on M11x ? I'm still on 805 without issue, and as far as I read, new bios don't have performance improvement in their changelog ?

There is a new thermal paste, Thermalright TFX which is nonconductive and has an amazing 14.3 W/m.k conductivity. My current Mastermaker Nano has 11 W/m.k conductivity.

Well I bit the bullet and orders a 9900k/Apex XI, going to give the 8700k/Apex X to my wife.
Should be here at the end of the week.
Wish the Apex XI looked more like the X, but hey it's a refresh.

Going to keep the ROG GTX1080ti Strix for another generation, no real benefit grabbing a $2000 RTX card just for early ray tracing...lol
