Ryzen Master 2, StoreMI 2 and AMD4 Roadmap
Alongside the release of the 3000 XT processors are updates to AMD’s StoreMI technology, Ryzen Master 2.3 software, and the launch of the B550 chipset. The 3000 XT processors are bundled with either Borderlands 3 or Outer World depending on your region. Moreover, AMD also confirmed that the Zen 3 processors are on track for release this 2020.
Ryzen Master v2.3 includes a Basic View version similar to most UEFI BIOS. The default basic view layout shows CPU clock speed, temps, and voltage on the left side with a quick OC profile and slider on the right. Switching to Advanced View lets you tinker with more settings including memory configuration. You can download Ryzen Master here.
AMD StoreMI technology has been in the market for 2-years as AMD’s solution to “Optane.” Frankly, StoreMI is a thing of the past, that is, until today with the redesigned StoreMI v2. For starters, the UI is now simpler and easier to navigate through with three columns displaying sets of information. Underneath the UI is a new algorithm designed to improve performance and remove the v1’s 2TB+256GB SSD array restriction
As of writing, AMD StoreMI 2 is only available for 3rd generation Ryzen processors paired with an X570 motherboard. Support for Threadripper, older gen CPUs and older motherboard chipsets including the B550, will follow on Q3 2020
