According to Tom’s Hardware, MSI has launched a new Beta BIOS for some of its X570S, X570 and B550 motherboards, bringing the Kombo Strike feature to the R7 5800X3D processor for performance improvements.
According to the report, MSI has not yet announced the rationale for Kombo Strike, which is described as “improving the CPU performance of the R7 5800X3D” and has four options: Disable, 1, 2 and 3.
As AMD has reportedly locked down the chip’s CPU overclocking parameters, it’s uncertain how MSI is squeezing extra performance out of the R7 5800X3D.
According to the media, the feature currently applies to MSI’s X570S Unify, Ace, X570 Godlike and B550 Unify X, Unify, Gaming Edge WiFi, B550I Gaming Edge MAX WiFi, B550M Mortar and other motherboards.
