Asus releasing bios update for windows 11 compatibility

I don't have any information as to how many board have received the updates so far however I can confirm that the TUF GAMING B550-PLUS non-wifi boards just did as of August 4th.  Clicky to see the latest bios for TUF GAMING B550-PLUS

 

Before this update you would have to manually go into the bios and enable certain options for it to be compatible with Windows 11, from what I can tell they have just enabled them by default.

 

update: It seems some of us are having issues with this new bios update... not sure if it is indeed the bios as of yet, but as a precaution I'm adding this to the post:

-Myself, I lost half my USB ports suddenly in windows yesterday... no driver updates, disable/enable or other fixes worked, re flashed my bios to the same version and they came back.

-Another user below reports start up issues that forced him to forcefully restart the PC before it would post properly

honestly, I don't think it's anything other than enabling the TPM and other security options by default.  But ASUS specifies "windows 11 compatibility" in their release info... I can confirm that I didn't have to manually set anything in the bios this time to be w11 compatible whereas before I had to manually enable TPM and some other things I can;t remember to get it to pass the test.

It must just be that. Nothing else BIOS wise would be incompatible . Not like Windows needs its own microcode....yet.

Well if someone did steal it, at least it would have some comedic value lol.

 

Glad you like it bud.

I am not happy how this update behaved on my system. 
The rig had quite a few restarts and my digital display gave some errors during the process. 
I had to wait for 20 minutes and then force a restart myself for the BIOS to pass all the testing it does when I turn the machine on.

I was waiting to post as I wasn't sure if the bios was causing the issues or not, but since you seemed to have had issues, I'll say I too had some issues with it, they started yesterday.  I lost half my USB ports 😱  I tried everything else, but finally decided to re-flash the bios and it worked... used the same one, but for some reason this time it worked... what scared me though, is one of the ports that died, was the bios flashback, but apparently it only affected them in windows.  I may go back to the older bios I had.  The 2404 beta bios has been the most stable I've tried so far, it just worked.

My Glacial display was showing RAM errors at one point. 
So I said hell no!

I reflashed as well with the same version and everything went better. 

 

31MB Bios ....
