    Question Will the ROG STRIX B350-F Gaming get AGESA 1.0.0.6?

    We have been stuck on Pinnacle 1.0.0.2 for ages and the RAM compatibility is dreadfully poor. Other boards have been on Pinnacle 1.0.0.4c for a while and are now getting Pinnacle 1.0.0.6. Does anyone have any news on what is going on with Asus? I have contacted customer support several times and got the standard "our engineers are looking into it" runaround.

    Anyone on the inside know what is going on? I am getting VERY tempted to jump ship and get my first non-Asus motherboard in over 10 years because of the complete lack of support.

    B450-F is 1.0.0.2 as well ... Apparently Asus is "having issues".

    And you can tell that MSI wasn't ready for it ... All their boards still have 30+ sec boot times, which is hilarious.

    1.0.0.6 BIOS was just released for the X470-i on 11/30 so you're probably getting it soon.... but I can't run my RAM at 3600 anymore with it (the XMP profile) - system basically crashes immediately after booting into windows

    I'll jump on this boat, I've just made a thread asking the same thing but for the X370-F. Its unacceptable that after paying the premium for the STRIX boards that we don't at least get BIOS updates to a new AGESA when AMD release one. Asrock and MSI are looking FAR better choices right now. I actually have two other builds built on an Asrock X370 Fatal1ty X and MSI X370 Gaming Pro, those boards are running firmware with AGESA 1004 and 1006 respectively AND I paid substantially less for those boards than I did this poxy X370-F which I have to put up with an ancient BIOS pre AGESA 1002/a due to those versions having horrible memory divider (crippled memory bandwidth) bugs.

    No we're not, they just released version 4207 which from the looks of it doesn't include latest AGESA:

    Version 4207
    2018/12/138.02 MBytes
    ROG STRIX B350-F GAMING BIOS 4207
    Improve compatibility and performance with for Athlon™ with Radeon™ Vega Graphics Processors
    Edit: It apparently does according, I was a little premature in the rant so deleted. Still why isn't this mentioned in the changelog?

    Doesn't say this on the North American site but someone confirmed on the B350-F issues thread that CPUID confirms AGESA 1.0.0.6 is there.

    Any ISSUES with the latest BIOS? Or are we looking pretty?
    I'd like to deploy my troops in her country.
