Twitter users 1usmus and Patrick Schur indicated improvement in the CPU performance and fixed the problem with WHEA on FCLK 1900. There isn’t information on the dLDO injector and overclock updates. So all of these features might be a secret as of now.
Asus ROG has already tweeted about the AGESA 126.96.36.199 BIOS update for the Ryzen 5000 processors. It seems the company is looking to release the BIOS for all 400 and 500-series BIOS update. There is no information about the BIOS update release date.
MSI release a timeline informing the about the AGESA 188.8.131.52 BIOS for all the supported motherboards. The B450 MAX and X470 MAX series motherboard will get the first update in January. The X470 and B450 motherboard will receive the BETA BIOS update in February, with the final version arriving early in Q2 2021. We expect ASUS to release the BIOS firmware on the same day as MSI with more information in the coming week.
