AGESA 1.0.0.4 Patch Notes

Jump to solution

Gigabyte has just released a new bios version for their GA-AX370-Gaming K7 board on 8/8/2018.  It contains what they call "AGESA 1.0.0.4".  However, I'm seeing lots of confusion on numbering with references back in 2017 to a 1.0.0.4a and b.  Also, their version is listed as "F23", which I've previously installed, but the AGESA version is different.

Can anyone here tell me more about the numbering convention?
Can anyone tell me what AGESA 1.0.0.4 has in it?
What is the relation between AGESA 1.0.0.4 released on 8/8/18 and the ones with a/b in 2017?

AMD uses the same numbers for different versions of a CPU which can sometimes be confusing.


The current AGESA Pinnacle PI 1.0.0.4c which is version 1.0.0.4 of the Pinnacle Ridge branch for Ryzen+(2000 series)

The 1.0.0.4 from 2017 is Summit Ridge branch for Ryzen(1000 series)

New features are reported to include improved Memory overclocking for certain types of RAM and better precision boost on 2000 series CPU's.

The new Agesa will work fine on older CPU's although some people believe that the older BIOS versions were more stable for their first revision Ryzen.

Asus has yet to release a new BIOS with the new Agesa because they are having problems.  1.0.0.2c is older than 1.0.0.4c.

Everything I see about 1.0.0.2c is for X470's. I have an X370 and the gigabyte site claims it's on version 1.0.0.4: GA-AX370-Gaming K7 (rev. 1.0) | Motherboard - GIGABYTE U.S.A.

And that's why I hate Gigabyte, I use ASUS, and ASUS has updated X370 boards to 1.0.0.2c

Their response was:

The AGESA is a AMD proprietary code, it cannot be release to the public.

It's related to the CPU Microcode.

Thank you

My response was:

I am not looking for the code, I am looking for patch notes on what changed. Lots of proprietary things have patch notes like video games, driver updates, and operating systems. Please try harder.

Thanks sideeffects​.  That really helped me understand why numbers seem to restart.  Now that I know it's tied to CPU generation, I'll know to pay attention to CPU family releases.  So, this bios may indeed not have anything for me unless I'm going to put a 2000 series chip in my x370.

AGESA certainly boosts the performance. Here are all the driver's updates for all the motherboards, though it might be useful. AGESA 1.0.0.4
