MSI unlocks AMD’s best gaming CPU with an X570 BIOS


It was only a matter of time before a manufacturer figured out a way to unlock AMD’s best gaming processor. Blocked by the company and said publicly by it, the Ryzen 7 5800X3D is so juicy for overclockers that totally or partially breaking Lisa Su’s yoke is water in the middle of summer and MSI has managed to unlock this 5800X3D through a new BETA BIOS for X570.

With the excuse of blocking the maximum manual or automatic overclocking functions due to the implementation of 3D V-Cache, AMD has not and will not offer the possibility of increasing its performance, but if you have an MSI board you can play with this. .

MSI and 5800X3D unlock, only for one motherboard… For now

It has been in this model where the benefits enjoyed by all AMD processors except the one mentioned have been given free rein. Ryzen 7 5800X3D. Considering that the preliminary partial unlock BIOS had great possibilities, such as undervolting this processor and achieving the same performance with lower temperature, users welcome the latest BIOS available on the MSI forum.

The options that are now available after unlocking are:

This is already enough to be able to increase the performance of the processor, where the results that have been seen so far are promising with figures that exceed 5%, with a voltage similar to that of the series and with hardly any increase in temperature.

Note that between the Ryzen 7 5800X and the Ryzen 7 5800X3D there is a speed difference of 200MHz for the smaller ones, so from stock on Multi Core the differences are palpable even though the newer of them is much faster in games.

This closes that gap in testing or video editing and further improves gaming performance, beating Intel at negligible power and temperature cost.

Will there be definitive BIOS for this and other motherboards?

Well, that’s really the unknown. We are talking about a BETA BIOS and as such, the risk of breaking the CPU is borne by the user and as such, MSI washes its hands, as all manufacturers do in these cases.

  The AMD Ryzen 5000 are hands down the best CPUs in the world for gaming

Therefore, and with AMD’s refusal to open the named features and others attached to them for the Ryzen 7 5800X3D, MSI may be reprimanded and this BIOS may end up being deleted or lost on the internet. So if you have a MEG X570 Unify and this CPU is sure to interest you, at your own risk, tighten your processor to see how much improvement you can get.

In addition, if we take into account that AMD is not going to leave AM4 in the inkwell for now and that there is speculation with the inclusion of Zen 4 for this socket (we really do not see it likely) the updates will continue to arrive and as has happened other times it is likely that in the future AMD will open its hand to this processor that is giving them such good performance.
