    It would be exceptionally stupid to tie an update for AMD CPUs to a release specifically for Intel ME vulnerabilities in my book. There's no way to explain that away.

    By now I'm getting quite...

    Hard to give a recommendation for anyone, I guess. Here's a random subjective opinion from a stranger on the internet. Treat it as such.. :)

    No official source has (openly, publicly) claimed that...

    Right now it's a good idea, poorly executed. And mostly for that flag alone. (I could rant about the keyboard, but .. that's less relevant)

    If someone asks me today if this laptop is recommended,...

    Thanks for the contribution here. Can you say where you got that information from? It sounds as if you're in contact with Asus or have another information source. If the latter, can you link that...

    I'm not convinced that this is a test thing - but of course I don't know any details myself.

    My expectation is that this is literally "just" a flag in the BIOS/EFI and that is provided by someone...

    Awesome, thanks for the link!

    If all else fails I will definitely do that. By which I mean I will find someone that is able to do that for me :)

    What kinda annoys me after a couple minutes of...

    I too believe that this is a (sad, unfortunate, weird - but not nefarious) oversight.

    This laptop is a first and I guess this just didn't come up internally. At least - that's what I want to...

    Just now AMD (opened a case with them) got back to me and after some back and forth they told me to downgrade to driver version 17.10.3

    That seems to solve the issue for me, everything turns back...

    For the others ZC owners in here: Would you mind looking at my other thread [1], telling me if this is something you see on your machines as well?

    Just a heads-up: I'd like to point out that this one's "special" (the single one AMD Ryzen based laptop Asus offers) and has some issues right now.
    As an owner of this particular model I'd recommend...

    G702ZC: Broken UIs all over the places

    Hi.

    On top of the crippled virtualization problem with this laptop I tend to see issues like these on a daily basis now:
    69091
    69092
    69093

    This is a standard tool (Microsoft SQL Server...

    I .. love you for saying that.

    For the record: I'm new to the RoG brand. I'm a developer and gamer, I need Hyper-V to run multiple machines in isolation to emulate different deployments. Any...

    Appreciate that, thanks. My local support was entirely unhelpful (to the point that I don't quite believe that my question was understood) and replied:

    "Can't enable it in the BIOS (sic)", I...

    Bluestack is not my issue. It runs, albeit slowly due to this missing feature. It's just a random emulator and I use it for gaming.
    Hyper-V is something I _need_ and that I bought this thing for. I...

    I'm in Singapore, but I'm an expat and have no idea about that here.
    That said, I'm sure they (and first: the retailer, I didn't get it from Asus, I got it from a local chain of shops that carries...

    Not for my purpose and unfortunately there's no way to find out that this CPU is crippled w/o buying this thing as far as I can tell. That's what this thread is about anyway, right? :-(

    Well.. Thank you "Nas". No reason to blame the poor fellow, but that is outrageously stupid on ROG/Asus' part.

    Thanks a lot!



    There's only one BIOS (actually EFI, no?) available for this laptop so far, version number's 300 as far as I can tell. This one here: ...

    Thank you for this. Both the suggestion and for confirming that on the Intel side of things (this is my first ROG laptop) virtualization is obviously fine!

    No, it's really not (a Bluestack problem).

    The AMD utility reports the same issue.
    And my screenshot shows Windows (the task manager) showing 'Virtualization: Disabled'. THAT is what I want to...
