ASUS Improves 5000G APU Compatibility with AGESA Patch C BETA BIOS Firmware Update For X570 Motherboards

ASUS becomes the first motherboard manufacturer to roll out latest AGESA patch for X570 lineup

ASUS isn’t messing around when it comes to 5000G compatibility issues. They become the first motherboard manufacturer to release their AMD AGESA Patch C for the X570 range of motherboards – effectively boosting the compatibility for the upcoming desktop CPUs and APUs.

The AMD AGESA Patch C BETA BIOS is an extension to the recently released Patch B, helping to create better compatibility with the new 5000G (Cezanne) APUs that are imminently due. Further to this, the patch will also enable X570 motherboards to have better compatibility with Ryzen 5000 CPUs (Vermeer B2 stepping) and should also resolve some of the USB issues users are experiencing with Ryzen 5000 systems.

The Ryzen 5000G APU lineup is set to launch in the coming weeks, with ASUS seemingly releasing this AGESA firmware patch just at the right time. The AMD Ryzen 7 5700G and 5600G will both be hitting DIY desktop shelves by the 5th of August. With the arrival of AGESA patch, users should see an increase in reliability and yield issues for Cezanna APUs. That’s about all we know at this early stage, with more BIOS improvements to come.

The new ASUS BIOS Firmware update will be available for the latest X570 ROG Crosshair VIII lineup – which includes the following motherboards:

We expect to see other motherboard manufacturers follow in ASUS’ footsteps relatively soon – with estimations of firmware being available in the coming week or so. I imagine many of the big motherboard manufacturers will already be working on the BIOS firmware, readying themselves for the 5000 APU launch.

For as long as I can remember, I’ve always been interested in computers and gaming. It all started with the Sega Mega Drive and then evolved into PC gaming in my early teens. CS 1.6 was my first go at competitive gaming which soon evolved into CS:Source and now CS:GO – a game that I still play (almost exclusively) today. Throughout that period I have been a keen PC builder and enthusiast – dedicating a large portion of my time to the craft. My current rig is an ASUS 5700XT with AMD’s Ryzen 3600X. Interests Aside from building PCs and getting beat by Russian teens on CS:GO, my other interests include travelling, socializing with friends, and cooking. I also spend a decent amount of time buying and selling products – with my latest project being Pokemon cards.
