AMD AGESA Feedback

Question asked by hardcoregames™ on Feb 9, 2020

I have copied the BIOS off of my X470 and X570 and looked the code based closely. 

 

What I have concluded is that the AMD AGESA code based needs to be revamped significantly. It is now clear why the platform is so sensitive to RAM. A redesign of the memory controller logic is needed.

 

I have also concluded that the X470 Gaming Plus is a cheaper 4 layer board with the top chipset used. I would have expected a slightly better platform but in the price sensitive world cost matters to many.

 

My X570 is more expensive and the use of PCIe 4.0 probably motivated the 6 layer approach. 

 

So I stand by my assessment that the memory logic needs to be revamped as well as the device manager.
