    Rog Strix B650 E-E Steam Launch Issue

    Hi all. Installed a new 7600x on a Rog Strix B650 E-E with Vengance Fury Renegade ram 6000mhz, paired with a 4090. Everything has gone perfect apart from Steam now takes 22-37 seconds to open. On my AM4 system it took 2-4 seconds max.

    Steps I have taken;
    App installed on multiple drives (chipset lanes and direct cpu lanes).
    Tried to launch *without* an account associated with it (same behaviour).
    Booted in safe mode with networking (same behaviour).
    Looked at Steam logs i.e Bootstrap and no issues found.
    Tried compatibility modes.
    Ran as Admin.
    Tried offline mode.
    Loaded Bios defaults.
    Updated Bios, Latest Windows Update, Grapics card driver.
    Disabled Integrated CPU graphics.

    Any help would be really appreciated as it is really too long to be waiting, on a faster system. No other apps or programs are affected like this.

    Enable "Run Steam when my computer starts" in Steam > Settings > Interface.

    It has nothing to do with your hardware or OS. Steam takes a while to start from cold. Enabling that option runs the heavy parts of Steam in the background, so that you are only opening the UI when you open the app.

    Hi. That is enabled. It still loads up 20 ish seconds after boot. But even if it wasn't on on my AM4 system it still only took a few seconds from been launched, now it takes 22-35 seconds.

    Oh interesting, thank you. I'll have a look now, my drive is only Gen 3, but I'll see what options it gives me.

    Update: Didn't do anything for me unfortunately.

    Given everything I tired I think it might be a Bios or Steam bug. It can't be too widespread as I didn't have many hits on searching.

    It is a big increase in time compared to my last system by about +500%.

    I also posted on the Steam boards, turns out there's another user with the same setup/problem. Hopefully there will be a Bios update.

    Good news I think, now Steam is launching in seconds again, in safe mode with networking.

    How do I go about finding the conflict? (its on a new windows install).

    Sorry to post four times in a row but after investigating for ages, I've finally found a solution. I thought it best to update here so if anyone else runs into it they can fix it too.

    All you have to do is load device manager and disable the onboard AMD graphics.

    Steam is back to launching in seconds again.
