The Taiwanese OEM has pushed a latest BIOS update that optimizes performance on AMD Renoir powered laptops in December.
This update has magically increased the performance on my ASUS VivoBook Flip 14 TM420 laptop with Ryzen 7 4700U with 8 cores and 8 threads.
There were three laptop updates pushed after September.
These updates optimized performance from the default out-of-the-box version of the laptop.
One update brought a significant impact on the Vega iGPU performance.
The ASUS BIOS 301 update was significant for the graphics performance:
After that, there was no significant performance improvement on the CPU front.
The ASUS 302 BIOS update in December has also brought significant impact to the APU’s overall performance:
This is the performance report before the update.
This is the performance report after the update.
The multi-threaded score got increased from 5192 points got increased to 5326 points whereas.
The single-core performance has improved from 1129 to 1154 points in Geekbench.
These statistics show that there is almost 2.6% performance improvement in multi-threaded tests and it is quite significant, as this is totally free of cost.
Most other AMD Renoir powered laptops by ASUS should be getting this update and you should do the BIOS update now.
AMD is giving its all to compete with NVIDIA. NVIDIA processors are being improved day by day but AMD is not far behind and it may overtake NVIDIA in near future.
