While BIOS can improve "default" performance in some cases (i.e stability by correcting workload curve) or unlocks some feature, it can't turn CPU into different CPU. That is, to gain speed, some sacrifice is needed to be made and I can only see increased power draw/temperature here.

I must say, I expected better from 11700K.. but then, not really. Yes, there is about 19% IPC improvement (sort of) compared to 10000 series. But that wasn't enough to catch up with AMD 5000 CPU.
Well, everyone should buy what fits his needs and wallet.
here for AMD 5000 fixed the L3 cache issue AGESA 1.2.0.1 and see about 10% improvement

It would be interesting to see that BIOS reviewed from a reputable review site. Also would be interesting to know if that is an issue with MSI boards alone or if it is something that has happened with other manufacturers as well.

-should be "..AGESA 1.2.01 fixed the L3 cache issue introduced in AGESA 1.2.0.0".
..and see about 10% improvement
-means, now your CPU works at it has before AGESA 1.2.0.0 update.

I kinda doubt one can see 10% improvement outside AIDA64 (I mean, in real world software usage) -if I'm wrong on that, so be it.

So the beta BIOS brought performance back to where it was when the 5000 series launched.
