    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

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

    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.
