In the next few months we could see new hardware from AMD, NVIDIA and Intel. From Ryzen 7000 to Intel Core 13, via AMD RX 7000, RTX 40 & Intel Arc. The last seen was the Ryzen 7000X3D designed for gaming and precisely to receive these, BIOS and AGESA updates have arrived. Now a driver update for AMD chipsets would be coming to us which would provide us with support for the 7000X3D and AMD Ryzen 7045HX laptops, among other improvements.
When the new Ryzen 7000X3D arrived, we were able to see what they are capable of in games. Although it is true that they did not meet the expectations of some users who thought there would be major differences, we cannot deny that we are up against the best AMD gaming CPUs. In fact, it is on the energy side where they stand out the most, as they consume significantly less than the i9-13900K with similar performance. In the event, some inconsistencies have been observed since there are games where there is hardly any difference with Ryzen 5800X3D or Ryzen 7000X without 3D V-Cache.
AMD Ryzen Chipset Driver 5.02.19.2221 for 7000X3D and 7045HX
#AMD Ryzen™ Chipset Driver 5.02.19.2221https://t.co/bc5Hublu8w
– Bug fixes on few drivers
– Added support for AMD Ryzen™ 7000X3D Series Desktop Processors
– Added support for AMD Ryzen™ 7045HX Series Desktop Processors

As usual, with the launch of new processors, BIOS, BIOS and Chipset updates usually arrive. Since the first two are already available on almost all motherboard brands, the chip drivers have been lost. Under the name of AMD Ryzen Chipset Driver 5.02.19.2221 we have some new drivers that will provide us support for AMD Ryzen 7000X3D, that is, 7950X3D, 7900X3D and the future 7800X3D.
We also see that coming to the “desktop” Dragon Range processors, the misleading consideration is the 7045HX for laptops. Although only highlight support and bug fixes, we have several improvements such as USB4 stability increase, support for 256 devices with AMD MicroPEP and BSOD issue fix when USB4 CM is involved during system hibernation.
The drivers have improved performance in games on the Ryzen 7000X3D
The truth is that AMD has been very brief with details, hardly any information has been added to the site where the drivers are announced. But we can find out more about them on sites like Videocardz, where they confirm that improvements have been made. It turns out that there are two new additions to these chipset drivers that will improve the Ryzen 7000X3D with asymmetric caches in games and software. Starting with the AMD 3D V-Cache Performance Optimizer Driver, this will automatically change the Windows options to match the CCX0 cores with 3D V-Cache when it’s optimal.
On the other hand, CCX1 will use meters when a higher frequency is needed. Finally, we will have the AMD PPM Provisioning File Driver, which will allow us to set the 200 that has the best performance in games and stay with it, instead of dynamically changing between the two. This basically allows us to improve game performance with AMD Ryzen 7950X3D, 7900X3D and 7800X3D. At least this is the theory, because it will be necessary to see the differences between the previous and the new driver in the benches and games to meet with the series 300, 400, 500 and 600.
