A new chipset driver from AMD provides support for the Ryzen 7 5800X3D and USB 4 on Ryzen 6000 APUs.
AMD’s new chipset driver supports the brand new Ryzen 7 5800X3D.
A new AMD chipset driver was surprisingly released on the Gigabyte website. This provides official support for AMD’s Ryzen 7 5800X3D, which will be released on April 20th. With a 3D V-Cache, this should again replace the current Alder Lake CPUs from Intel as the fastest gaming CPU. The chipset driver in version 4.03.03.624 is optimized for the Ryzen 7 5800X3D and is said to offer a performance increase of 15 percent compared to the classic Ryzen 7 5800X.
USB 4 on Ryzen 6000 APUs
In addition, AMD’s chipset driver ensures USB 4.0 support on the Ryzen 6000 series APUs. This should allow data to be transferred at up to 40 Gbps. According to the manufacturer, it is also possible to connect external GPUs. AMD plans to enable eGPU support on the Ryzen 6000 Rembrandt APUs in the future. Then a notebook in home use could be upgraded to a gaming system with an external graphics card.
Download at gigabytes
It remains unclear when AMD would like to officially offer version 4.03.03.624 of the new chipset driver on its own website. If you are considering buying the Ryzen 7 5800X3D, you can already install the driver on your system. Then it will be available on your own computer for the release of AMD’s new CPU. Owners of a notebook with the latest Ryzen 6000 APU should also benefit from the chipset driver update. The download for Windows 10 and Windows 11 is only available from the manufacturer Gigabyte, which offers the driver for its X570 Aorus Master motherboard. The download is relatively small at 50 MB.
