    New AMD X570 Chipset Drivers Available: 1.11.22.0454

    AMD has a new X570 Chipset Driver available on their site:

    https://www.amd.com/en/support/chips...ocket-am4/x570

    EDIT: and a download for the X470 Chipset, too: https://www.amd.com/en/support/chips...ocket-am4/x470

    It's version 1.11.22.0454 and is dated 11/25/2019.

    Since this is my first AMD rig, I'm not sure how to work this:
    • Do I download and install those drivers over my existing version or uninstall the previous?
    • Should I reset my BIOS to defaults before installing this?
    • My motherboard BIOS is up-to-date, but should I wait for a new BIOS version from Asus?
    • I'm using 1usmus' Power Plan. Do I undo that before updating to the new chipset drivers?
    • I've used 1usmus' DRAM Calculator to overclock my memory. Do I remove that overclock before updating to this?

    Now Ryzen Balanced looks to work a lot like 1usmus Universal, hence no need for 1usmus power plan.

    I've installed it on both my Prime Pro and the Aorus M, both running 1004B, I just installed over the old drivers and did a reboot.

    I would say these are better than the previous drivers.

    1usmus Custom Power Plan required us to set the following in the BIOS under "AMD CBS":

    Global C-state Control = Enabled
    Power Supply Idle Control = Low Current Idle (not in ASUS BIOS)
    CPPC = Enabled
    CPPC Preferred Cores = Enabled
    AMD Cool'n'Quiet = Enabled (not in ASUS BIOS)
    PPC Adjustment = PState 0 (not in ASUS BIOS)

    I don't remember what the defaults were for those. Assuming you changed yours, did you set them back to anything before updating the chipset or just leave them as they were? Assuming you left them, it looks like the only thing I might have to worry about is the memory overclocking.

    1. Yes (no need to uninstall)
    2. No
    3. No
    4. No (Might automatically revert back to the AMD one after installation)
    5. No

    I went ahead and installed the new chipset drivers right over the top of the old ones and without changing anything on my system. No problems at all. I just finished stress testing and doing some benchmarking and everything looks fine. According to the benchmarks, there might be a skosh more performance than with the old chipset drivers. But, the amount of difference is miniscule and is probably in the realm of noise/experimental error.

    Thanks to both xeizo and liakou.
