Hi,

My 3DMark Time Spy score went down significantly after updating ASRock AB350 Pro4 motherboard Bios to 5.80 from 5.60.

Its down from 5200 to 4700 which is -11%.

I had similar issues when AGESA was updated in previous bioses.

Does AGESA affects performance by downgrading it by 11% with same overclock?

Both GPU and CPU scores went down by 11%.

5.60 Bios is not available anymore on ASRock website and gave the best performance.

System is:
Ryzen 1800X@3.95Ghz
RX580@1525/2200
16GB 2x8GB Patriot 3466Mhz CL16

Yes, the new bios came out today and includes support for Ryzen 3000 series.

I was getting 4700 with default clocks. It seems overclock does nothing in new bios.

Here is the log from ASRock website about new bios:

1.Supports AMD next generation Ryzen™ processors
2.Update AMD AGESA Combo-AM4 1.0.0.1.

CPU Time Spy score went down significantly even when RAM is at 3533Mhz C16 from 8900 to 8100 pts.

Other 3DMark users get 8900 at stock 3.6Ghz 1800X speeds and I get 8100 at 3.95Ghz OC.

I bumped the CPU to 4000Mhz and the GPU to 1535, RAM to 3533 but I still get 8137pts for the CPU Time Spy.
