ASUS isn’t messing around when it comes to 5000G compatibility issues. They become the first motherboard manufacturer to release their AMD AGESA 220.127.116.11 Patch C for the X570 range of motherboards – effectively boosting the compatibility for the upcoming desktop CPUs and APUs.
The AMD AGESA 18.104.22.168 Patch C BETA BIOS is an extension to the recently released Patch B, helping to create better compatibility with the new 5000G (Cezanne) APUs that are imminently due. Further to this, the patch will also enable X570 motherboards to have better compatibility with Ryzen 5000 CPUs (Vermeer B2 stepping) and should also resolve some of the USB issues users are experiencing with Ryzen 5000 systems.
The Ryzen 5000G APU lineup is set to launch in the coming weeks, with ASUS seemingly releasing this AGESA firmware patch just at the right time. The AMD Ryzen 7 5700G and 5600G will both be hitting DIY desktop shelves by the 5th of August. With the arrival of AGESA 22.214.171.124 patch, users should see an increase in reliability and yield issues for Cezanna APUs. That’s about all we know at this early stage, with more BIOS improvements to come.
The new ASUS BIOS Firmware update will be available for the latest X570 ROG Crosshair VIII lineup – which includes the following motherboards:
We expect to see other motherboard manufacturers follow in ASUS’ footsteps relatively soon – with estimations of firmware being available in the coming week or so. I imagine many of the big motherboard manufacturers will already be working on the BIOS firmware, readying themselves for the 5000 APU launch.
