How about “you’re holding it the wrong way” defense?"we sold you Gen4.0 PCIe in Beta Version"
If AMD knew what went wrong, it would have said exactly what the issue was and whether it was fixable by AGESA update.I laughed at the suggestion of moving settings to gen 3. None of their suggestions give me a warm fuzzy feeling, it’s like they don’t even understand what is truly going wrong.
So, on one hand we have AMD fans bragging about AMD beating Intel to bringing PCIe 4.0 to the mainstream a few years earlier and on the other hand, we have AMD saying that you may need to turn that off to solve intermittent connectivity issues.
The joys of early adoption, you never know when you will get burned.
Well , if Threadrippers dont have the same problem , then shame on AMD ... it is not GEN4.0 too early , it is bad Ryzen Design !The sample size is probably too small to generate a significant number of complaints. TR also uses a different IOD and chipset, so the USB bug may not be applicable at all.
The 4GB RX5500 can be up to 70% faster on 4.0 than 3.0, so 4.0 is starting to pay dividends at the low-end where GPUs need fast access to system memory to offset their VRAM deficit. That makes me optimistic about how well the 3050(Ti) will perform despite still having only 4GB once Nvidia gets around to launching it.Actually your GPU is deriving no performance boost from PCIe4.
