It depends on part of the fTPM code from a previous BIOS version to be in place.
Aside from the many included many changes and improvements, it also introduces new bugs. If your PC is currently stable and running fine as you wish it to.
I dunno what’s up with this, but ever since I upgraded to 3.30 (the one listed as a precondition) and then 4.20 (on ab350 pro4), I’ve now twice had the GPU (vega56) disappear from windows while the fan went to 100%, only to reappear on shutdown + restart. Both times very shortly after starting HWInfo64, never otherwise. Also, the onboard NIC died 3 days after upgrading, no idea if related. Went back to 3.30, but that didn’t prevent the vega from disappearting the 2nd time. Not yet gone back to 3.20 yet. NIC is still visible, but the activity led on the back is dead, and it doesn’t do anything any more, even in the bios.
Still running the first Aegis update that addressed my ram issue. Not always a good idea to run the latest bios. General rule of thumb is the bios that sorts your issues mb wise and stop. I have had no issues with my Taichi so I have failed to track things as closely as I should.
Why? It’s pretty common for enterprise hardware, vendors often have these supported/recommended upgrade chains/paths, I know it’s a bit unusual for consumer hardware, but calling it alarming is an overreaction.
Anyhow, I’m not here to discuss the subtleties of the English language. So take it as you will.
The codeblock in the Firmware performing the update flash has changed in crucial ways between these versions.
These changes are not insignificant. It can not be guaranteed that it wont set your house on fire. Yet none of the Vendors seem to be treating this firmware update release with the care and attention it requires.
This one should have working pstates, and I would like to be brave but no Taichi
Also, HWiNFO64 just got update
Fixed reporting of temperatures on AMD Vega since Crimson 17.11.2 driver.
GPU I2C support is now automatically disabled on AMD Vega series to prevent a possible system crash.
Automatic disabling of GPU I2C support can be circumvented using a new GPU I2C Support Force option.
When i got my new box last month i updated to latest bios which was September, count me as one of those that probably wont update unless i have too. It works and its not intel so as long as i dont get zen+ or zen2 i shouls be fine.
I updated my Prime X370 Pro to 3203 and subsequently 3401 and have had no major issues beyond the 3203 BIOS breaking compatibility with a cheapo wifi card (which I returned). Granted it took some troubleshooting to figure that one out, but otherwise system itself is fine.
The bigger issue I had was not being able to roll back to 1201.
