    Yup, that's the method I use. It's disabled by default but unlocking via afterburner enables it, though I just use afterburner to set the clocks. I then have profiles in Wattman to lock p-state in games to get max clocks.

    Could you peeps tell me what version of Agesa the bios is running? I currently got a GX531GS (slim thin asus laptop), only got it cause price was pretty low in decemeber but I have ran into an issue and the only replacement I'm considering is this laptop, I'd probably sell the 256gb nvme it comes with and either grab a 512 or 1tb.

    I've been hearing great things about the tempeatures and it'll fit the needs of mine, the machine will mostly be for running unreal engine 4 and working on projects in UE4 while not at home.

    Downloaded CPU-Z and HWINFO both of which should be able to display the AGESA version however I'm not capable to find anything about it. Any other way to find it without rebooting?

    It have a very impressive cooling system for sure. Should make a nice workstation as long as you remember it's a big heavy machine.

    Would be amazing if ryzen 3k could be installed. Sounds like you would be able to reduce heat quite a bit with those cpu

    @Megol

    If you go to hwinfo and under motherboard, it doesn't show it under the bios section in the printout?
    I might try to see if I can read the bios file and see what version it currently has.

    Acer released a new vga driver for the Ryzen laptop.
    Can anyone check if they lowered the Freesync vrr window from 60-144 hz to at least 50-144 hz?
    It's a long shot since it probably needs a screen panel edid update too, but I still wonder...

    I'm sorry but I simply can't find anything anywhere that seems related to the AGESA version. Insyde BIOS version 1.07 is essentially all information in both HWINFO and CPU-Z.
    Don't know if AMD bundles AGESA updates with CPU microcode updates (long time since my last AMD processor!) but if so microcode revision 8008206, SMU firmware revision 43.19.0

    Edit: rebooted and checked the BIOS setup - nothing.

    Strange, CPU-Z shows AGESA version on my Crosshair VII:

    Yes I know, I need to update my BIOS to the latest version.
