Reports from Wccftech have us believe that in the coming days MSI will soon be updating the AGESA 188.8.131.52. Thanks to this new firmware update, the BCLK overclocking will finally be available for the Ryzen 7 5800X3D processor. Don’t get too excited though as this will only be available for the enthusiast motherboards that too with the X570 chipset. The BIOS is to support the MEG X570 GODLIKE, Ace, and Unify series which means all the motherboards which have external clock generators.
Last week in some independent testing the BCLK overclocking of the 5800X3D processor was demonstrated but the results show that it is not a recommended use for this kind of processor. The first consumer CPU by AMD comes with a 3D V-Cache and it wasn’t designed keeping overclocking in mind. Numerous reports are pointing out the negative long terms effects on the Cache and the chipset.
If the BCLK is set to 107 MHz, the CPU is going to run at 4.87 GHz and 1.328V. this has been confirmed in a recent screenshot by MSI. With this configuration, the CPU is going to score 1596 points in Cinebench R23 single-core test and 15488 points in the multi-core test. This shows an increase in performance of 7.5% and 4.9% respectively as opposed to the default BCLK setting at 100 MHz.
