We’re just a week away from the official launch of the Ryzen 9 7000 X3D CPUs, and MSI started updating its motherboards to suit these upcoming chips.
The company rolled out AGESA 22.214.171.124c BIOS update to X670 & B650 motherboards – enabling support for the upcoming chips. Aside from compatibility, this update consists of Enhanced Boost Mode and High-Efficiency Mode to offer a better and optimized performance.
Support For New Ryzen 9 7000 Series
The red team is advancing with its plans of launching its high-end CPUs for power-intensive tasks, namely the AMD Ryzen 9 7950 X3D, the Ryzen 9 7900 X3D, and the Ryzen 7 7800 X3D. While the Ryzen 9 7000 Series is set to launch next week, the AMD Ryzen 7 7800 X3D will arrive in April.
As we wait for them, MSI has just rolled out a software update to its X670 & B650 motherboards, bringing them to AGESA 126.96.36.199c BIOS version. This would enable support for the upcoming AMD Ryzen 9 7000 Series chips while including new features.
MSI is rolling out AGESA 188.8.131.52c BIOS for X670/B650 boards. SMU version updated to 84.79.218.
Also a new feature "Enhanced Mode Boost" is introduced. 3 profiles offered to boost 7950X3D/7900X3D performance.https://t.co/TbynQ2Q1ux pic.twitter.com/D968IUTXVM

One among them is an Enhanced Mode Boost to better the performance of these chips, available in the PBO selection list, and a High-Efficiency Mode for tight RAM timings and better RAM performance, available in the OC menu.
MSI says the new BIOS update is specially curated for the X3D class chips with 3D V-Cache technology to offer their best performance at efficient rates. While the AMD Ryzen 9 7000 X3D chips are the beasts of their range, most gamers may flock around the AMD Ryzen 7 7800X3D – coming on the 6th of April.
This chip is specially tasked with handling the best games seamlessly with its high-end hardware at a reasonable price – costing $449. The Ryzen 9 7950 X3D, on the hand, is priced at $699, while the Ryzen 9 7900 X3D will cost $599. Benchmark test results of these chips are expected to leak before their official launch, probably later this week.
