    No.
    Many people are having issues (c5 error and fan header issues still), and it's like the bottom of ASUS's support list now so I don't expect it to get much attention now.

    Its a good board, would be a smart buy IF they sort the bios!

    Indeed it is, I have two. But ASUS have been notorious with **** BIOS updates. Fixing one thing and breaking another. All that's changed ois their focus on the newer boards.

    True, though there is a new bios today. :) (remains to be seen what it breaks :p)

    The actual XFR2, precision boost is built into the CPU isnt it? Crosshair VI certainly supports it though a bios update. (Thats what I understand, could be wrong!)

    They said that at the time but the CPUs are a SoC and xfr and precision boost etc are built into the CPU itself and not the chipset.

    Updates to the xfr and PB are contained within the agesa updates so if an older board gets a bios update with the new agesa then its gets the updates xfr etc.

    I can confirm this using a 3700x on an X370 taichi with latest bios. It boosts and scores exactly the same as if it were running on an X570 board. I have all the new xfr and PB options within the bios menus too.

    Quick question.

    Will Zen2+ (Ryzen 4000) come with new x670 boards or just stick with the x570 boards?

    Exactly the same with my Asus Prime Pro x370. Has been rock solid now since I got my 3700X 2 weeks ago.

    Glad I didn't buy a new x570 board.

    I returned the 3600mhz ram I brought also and just stuck with my Adata 3000mhz C16. Works fine at XMP and only a few points less than 3200mhz benchmarks.

    I survived Zen 2 release without pulling the trigger and ordering. Now my next "waiting for Navi" point is 3950x, and after that, new Threadrippers. Hope TR can match single core boost of 3900x/3950x

    These are not really "new". They just managed to release same bios that most motherboards had after release...

    Looks like a bunch of ASRock B450/X470 boards finally got AGESA 1.0.0.3 today. Maybe stock XMP is finally stable...

    Well I work in Industry. With 'cost cutting' they are doing all the time 0 hour contracts and agency workers drivers not getting paid for delivery if noone was home ect. It all went down the crapper few years ago Many couriers I knew just packed up. There was one chap working for interlink got sacked for stealing deliveries he was back delivering to us on Yodel 2 weeks later.. SAYS IT ALL

    Not liking the new Asus bios on B450-F, light loads like browsing has jumped the voltage from 1.35 to 1.43 and so temps are now hitting 60c when browsing the web. I'm rolling back.

    That pic is quite worryingly true. I reckon I get more fun from planning, buying and building my pc than actually gaming on it.

    Get more excited at benchmarks than I do games. Tragic stuff!

    Zen 3 will be the last of the AM4, but likely see X670. Not sure what improvements over X570 though, maybe just a revised chipset.
