AMD updated chipset drivers: Support USB4 and improve 3D V-Cache performance



 

AMD updated chipset drivers: Support USB4 and improve 3D V-Cache performance.

Although AMD has not provided it directly on the official website, its latest chipset driver version has come to 4.03.03.624, and some motherboard manufacturers have provided downloads.

AMD has made a lot of additions in this version of the chipset driver, adding many new features.

 

According to TechPowerup , a very important update of the chipset driver version 4.03.03.624 is to provide support for USB4.

Although only the 64-bit version of the Windows 10 operating system is temporarily supported, it is only a matter of time before it adapts to the Windows 11 operating system. . This is mainly for the Ryzen 6000 series released at CES 2022 this year.

This APU codenamed Rembrandt and based on the Zen 3+ architecture is currently AMD’s only product that supports USB4.

Supporting USB4 on mobile platforms is an important step for AMD.

Competitor Intel has obvious advantages in the scalability of notebook computers by virtue of the popularization of Thunderbolt 4 interface. Through USB4, AMD supports 40 Gbps transfer rate, DisplayPort 1.4a HBR3, and is compatible with Thunderbolt 3 standard, providing functions close to Thunderbolt 4. Even if it is not as good, it can meet the expansion needs of most users.

 

Another interesting part is that AMD provides a “3D V-Cache performance optimizer driver” for the 64-bit version of the Windows 10/11 operating system in the chipset driver version 4.03.03.624.

As for the specific role, it is still unclear. It is speculated that it may be some kind of cache scheduler, or a means for AMD to allocate software that cannot take advantage of 3D V-Cache technology to the processor’s local cache, but the specific situation will not be confirmed until the Ryzen 7 5800X3D goes on sale.

 

The Ryzen 7 5800X3D is the first Zen 3 architecture desktop processor with 3D V-Cache technology, with 8 cores and 16 threads, a base frequency of 3.4 GHz, an acceleration frequency of 4.5 GHz, and a L3 cache of 96MB. The Ryzen 7 5800X3D with Vermeer-X cores will be available on April 20 for $449.
