AMD Ryzen Retest Review

PC Mark

Showing that there isn't really a clear cut answer to the question of whether an current BIOS is better than a launch one, PC Mark 7 Pro generally prefers the newer one, albeit aided by a crazy score for the overclocked Ryzen 5 1500X. PC Mark 8 unquestionably prefers the latest BIOS. PC Mark 10 is, like HEVC and Blender before it, new to our suite so it's here for completeness rather than any particular insight.

And yet even on that BIOS i'm having to RMA my stuff again. USB controller's gone completely bananas, often refusing to recognise any devices past the first 30 minutes of the machine being switch on, i've never got any QVL memory kit to clock at all on this motherboard, regardless of whether they're hynix or samsung based or either an even/odd CAS. I'd say it's luck of the draw as i've had 6 of this motherboard, none working as described.Quote

So, these benches confuse me. Why am I getting similar or higher scores with my 1700 @ 3.875 GHZ and Mem @ 3066mhz? Not complaining about your review, mind you, I'm just curious.

Thanks for the quality review. You're the Best TTLQuote

Thanks for the review. Not many re-test articles out there. Interesting results too. Lots of people were saying immature BIOS is what was holding Ryzen back for a while. I was one that was kinda hoping that was true so the gaming performance would improve some but glad to know Ryzen is what it is.Quote

It did improve. Don't take these results as definitive. It's only 3 games. Not saying his are wrong but you'd have to test a bunch to get an answer. I'm sure it's nothing drastic but improvements all around are there. Should check WYP article on his recent memory tests. You see pretty noticeable gains.Quote
