    Phoronix: AMD Ryzen 7 2700X Linux Performance Boosted By Updated BIOS/AGESA

    With last week's initial launch-day Linux benchmarks of the Ryzen 5 2600X / Ryzen 7 2700X some found the Linux performance to be lower than Windows. While the root cause is undetermined, a BIOS/AGESA update does appear to help the Linux performance significantly at least with the motherboard where I've been doing most of my tests with the Ryzen 7 2700X. Here are the latest benchmark numbers.

    Are you seeing +10°C temperature offset from k10temp with Ryzen 2700X?

      What exactly is AGESA? Sorry for my ignorance.

        Only 10? for me it reports 90-110C mostly idle, in bios its shows ok under 40C

          a important part of amd processor firmware, its version is used to determine how new is the bios as the bios is based on it, there are more technically correct or advanced explanations but as a user thats all you need to know

              That's a pretty significant free performance boost. Great work AMD!

                The sole public change listed is updating to AGESA 1.0.0.2a.
                Weird numbering, since previous AGESA was something 1.0.0.7x.

                  As a user you should also know that the AGESA is related to the CPU/APU performance and other low-level features like C-states and power management (which means a different AGESA can overclock differently and issues on such low-level hardware features can be fixed or introduced with an AGESA update).

                    Yeah, new AGESA could feel like entirely different CPU Diff is so big really, that it looks like all reviewers should review these Ryzens AG(ESA)AIN

                    Of course if this is not just Micheal's isolated case
