AMD announces AGESA that solves intermittent USB connectivity issues


Recommended Posts


On Reddit, AMD has confirmed that a new AGESA firmware that solves most of the reported USB related issues will be released in April.



Less than four weeks ago, AMD has begun collecting data from users who experienced USB related issues on AMD 500 series motherboards. Today the company announced that a fix is coming this April.


AMD 500 motherboards series have reportedly had issues with USB connectivity. Some users have reported that their USB devices would randomly disconnect or go offline completely. Other users have experienced problems with audio devices connected through USB ports, sound crackling could be heard on digital to audio converter or amplifiers. This was especially noticeable when such devices were used simultaneously with high-end graphics cards or capture cards. This led people to believe that there is a chipset bandwidth problem. A common solution was to lower the PCI Gen4 standard to Gen3 or switch USB ports from 3.0 to 2.0. This of course was not an ideal solution, especially when this bandwidth was actually really needed, but AMD has not even acknowledged the problem until February, so it was the only solution
