Biostar release windows 11 compatible motherboard list

Information recently revealed indicates that some X570 motherboard vendors misreported key metrics for AMD Ryzen processors to exaggerate performance.

motherboard vendors are adjusting the motherboard inventory power limit to allow the processor to consume more power; therefore, they increase the number that appears on the product page. However, this will also generate more heat, which will sadly have an impact on the life of the chip. It's pretty standard procedure for

motherboard vendors to adjust chip inventory power limits. Almost all vendors will adjust Intel chips. However, Intel does recognize these power limit settings. This is because these settings will not interfere with the life of the chip.

When it comes to AMD chips, this kind of security does not exist. According to a post by The Stilt on the HWinfo board, this may result in a shorter processor life.

"Bottom line: Some motherboard manufacturers deliberately declare incorrect (too small) motherboard-specific benchmarks in AGESA. Since the AM4 Ryzen CPU relies on the telemetry of the VRM motherboard to determine its power consumption, a stated incorrect baseline value will affect the power consumption seen by the CPU. For example, if the motherboard manufacturer declares 50% of the correct value, the CPU will think that the power it consumes is half of the actual consumption, "explained The Stilt in the post.

forum users continue to explain why this occurs this problem, and why people should be aware of this.

"In this case, the CPU will allow itself to consume twice its set power limit, even if it is in stock. Due to the effective increase of the power limit, it allows the CPU clock to be higher; however, it also makes the CPU run hotter and can negatively affect its lifespan, as can overclocking. The difference compared to overclocking or using AMD PBO is that this is done completely in secret and in the past, most end users could not detect or react to it. "In response,

HWinfo released a new feature called" CPU Power Reporting Deviation. "This allows users to detect any inaccuracies in the motherboard firmware. It can be downloaded for free, and all you need to do is get your CPU through multiple thread testing, this will help control the true value.

"Because at least two of the largest motherboard manufacturers insist on using this vulnerability to their best advantage, we think it is only fair that consumers check their motherboards to do things they shouldn't, "HWinfo said.

If you currently own or are considering purchasing AMD CPUs and X570 motherboards, this certainly needs to be considered. If we hear any updates about this, we will keep you informed.
