the 64 core score is going to be insane....

EDIT: new sage10/g bios is out
Updated...thanks!

Previous .CMO settings did not work, so had to redo the whole BIOS settings again.

A note on 1102 BIOS for SAGE10

DO NOT update. I am having major issues in Premiere and certain devices are getting drop outs.

I am trying to revert back to 0905 but ASUS won't let me do that because there's some new Intel mitigation in the latest bios and the microcode.

BIOS flashback won't take the previous BIOS either.

Trying a few other things.

EDIT:

Others having similar issues.


EDIT2: I forgot you had to make your BIOS FLASHBACK USB stick FAT32 but formatted as MBR and not GUID (which is what Windows does by default). So formatting the stick properly, then naming the BIOS to WSXTG.CAP, you will be able to flash back with the BIOS flashback feature (check the manual).

EDIT 3: 0905 fixed all the issues. Definitely related to Above 4G option, if enabled devices work, but there's heavy stuttering and instability in GPU heavy applications such as Premiere Pro.

Rolling back to 0905 gets rid of all these issues.

Above 4G disabled did not help and actually disabled all onboard USB.

Just wasted 4 hours on this, thanks ASUS :banghead:

Sorry you had to deal with that, but glad you could go back to 0905. Hopefully ASUS releases a fixed version soon.

it’s ok hopefully it helps others avoid the update for now. I emailed asus about the issues hope they fix it/take it down. :thumbup:


EDIT: It seems ASUS will be taking 1102 down due to customer complaints.

I noticed I am still on BIOS 1401 for the Prime Deluxe.
I see there are 3 newer versions, 1503, 1704, and 1902. Can anyone confirm how far up I can go safely? I've been seeing a lot of rollbacks so I just want to make sure.

Thank you in advance!

I'm on 1902 and it seems okay. I didn't like 1704, but 1902 seems fine....so far....
