Bios update for B550 AORUS Elite Motherboard 1.0
« on: March 26, 2023, 12:14:30 am »
Hi Everyone
As it says flashing the bios is potentially risky, I updated my Mobo bios to F15c on 05/06/2022,  so not too long ago.
I may change the CPU soon to the 5800X3D, and when I look in the current bios list the F15c  is not there anymore.
The F15a is still listed and that includes Ryzen 7 5800X3D support, so my later bios should be OK

But now a new bios has appeared F16b ( Optimized for the 5800X3D )

Question 1
Will this bios make a real difference as I don't want to update the bios every few months if it is not critical?

Question 2
Why was the F15c removed?

If your system is stable and running well, updating is not usually necessary.  I only typically update in order to fix or correct something, add support for a new CPU, address a serious security issue, etc.

BIOS' with a letter designation are beta.  I don't usually use or recommend beta BIOS, unless they specifically address something I "need" to have.  Sometimes they get "pulled" if a problem or issue is identified.  Sometimes they get removed if a newer update is found to be better or if the beta is converted to an official release.  (example no letter).
