Via a Twitter post, AMD reports BIOS updates with the new AGESA microcode will hit the web in January and February. Some beta versions were already circulating last month.

The new AGESA version introduces support for S0i3, an active idle power state for Windows 10. S0i3 promises the low power consumption of S3 sleep coupled with quicker wake-up times. It's something Intel has been supporting for many years.

Additionally, the update promises better memory overclocking stability in the 1800-2000MHz FCLK range, as well as general, undefined stability improvements. There's also a vague reference to support for passive X570 motherboards, which may imply tweaks to power profiles for fanless X570 motherboards.
