here for AMD 5000 fixed the L3 cache issue AGESA 18.104.22.168 and see about 10% improvementWhile 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.
