Last week, we saw the first public rollout of AMD's latest AGESA 126.96.36.199 microcode for AM4 boards which adds improved compatibility and support for Ryzen based systems. The AGESA 188.8.131.52 was delivered by MSI first on its MAX series (A320, B450, X470) motherboards but now, MSI is rolling out the BIOS update for its entire X570 lineup including a few new additions.

Change log for AMD AGESA 1005
Rollup of 1004a, ab, abb, abba patches into a single release
Fixed a PCIe lane configuration issue on the AMD Ryzen 3 PRO 2100GE
Resolved an intermittent virtual memory error with Realtek onboard LAN
Improved POST with select Micron DDR4-3200 memory ICs
Optimized PCIe firmware to improve stability and interoperability
The BIOS definitely seems to offer improved stability and optimizations in regards to DDR4 DRAM compatibility and also generation PCIe stability and interoperability. Those who are still running an older BIOS should definitely try out the new BIOS but if you are not facing any issues with the ones you already have, then it's better to stick with it. If your motherboards aren't made by MSI, then don't worry since as mentioned above, motherboard manufacturers will be releasing new BIOS for their own specific lineups this month. We will keep you posted as more motherboards receive the AMD AGESA 22.214.171.124 update.
