    How do you stay up-to-date with MB Bios releases?

    I just realized I've been running the old 3001 bios on my tuf gaming pro-wifo x570 motherboard.

    Current bios is 3603, and was released 03/20/21.

    Is there a way to be notified when a new bios is released?

    In Armory Crate, it says no bios update available even though bios version 3603 has been out for sometime.

    AMD motherboard forum on overclock.net, Shamino from Asus posts his test-bioses there, can't be more up-to-date unless being at Asus HQ. Considering you are confident enough to run a test-bios, anything could go wrong but it mostly doesn't.

    In general if your system is working well you don't really have need to update BIOS...and many people even say you shouldn't just to avoid making problems where there weren't before. By the same token, when something isn't working right is the time to go check if there's a BIOS update available in case it might help.

    So in other words, there's really no need to get updated on BIOS releases.

    If it aint broke dont fix it.
    Some of the older BIOS files work better as the micorcodes get update it nearly always = drop in performance and/or higher temps. I run a newer BIOS (not the latest as things are working perfectly) modded with older MCU. I tried the newer ones and lost performance and got higher temps.
