    Thumbs up Re: GA-890FXA-UD5 IOMMU BIOS Switch?

    Good news.

    Gigabyte sent me version F4a of the 890FXA-UD5 BIOS. F3x for the UD7 was included too.

    This adds a IOMMU option in the BIOS setup, and dmesg tells me:
    Code:
    [    1.847273] AMD-Vi: Enabling IOMMU at 0000:00:00.2 cap 0x40
    [    1.847274] AMD-Vi: device isolation enabled
    [    1.847275] AMD-Vi: Lazy IO/TLB flushing enabled
    So, if you want to try it out, just bug them.

    Oh cool! How do I contact them directly? Or do you have the image that I can reflash my board with, that I can download from you? I don't know which will be quickest/painless.

    Thanks for the great news! I really can't wait to try it out!

    Cheers!

    Go through their ticketing system: Technical Support - GIGABYTE

    You might have to wait a while for a response though. I got mine after a week or so.

    If you really really can't wait, send me a pm with your email address and I'll forward it.

    I could do that, but I'm not sure if Gigabyte is ok with that. It's a beta BIOS that you can't get officially yet after all. I'm not familiar with their procedures and guidelines, so I'll rather play it safe for now and not distribute this to everyone.

    You can always ask one of the Gigabyte guys here on tweaktown. The Latest BIOS section doesn't seem to have recent AMD board BIOSes yet. Maybe they will add them soon?

    Eeek, I've fought with their technical support and according to them that board doesn't support IOMMU, but they will give me a BIOS that has IOMMU for the that board? Seems all backwards... I'd rather get it from you, who won't take a week to respond like the Gigabyte technical support and/or fight with me about what is/isn't supported.

    If onitake doesn't upload it to a mass file server, I have no problem hosting it on my server until it becomes official on Gigabyte's BIOS page. How about it, onitake?

    if you both have the same mb and need the beta bios then please upload stating what motherboard its for and folks can download if needed its much quicker than going through gigabyte,as for amd bios's you need to pm the users who manage bios's for those platforms,stasio uploads for intel and i think dinos22 not sure uploads for amd

    yes it's fine

    every bios that is beta is a risk for users which they take themselves..........but ive been beta testing GBT for the last 4-5 years and havent screwed up a board with a bios flash so likelihood would be slim anyways

    Ok guys, there you go: http://www.megaupload.com/?d=RJYWND5Y

    checksums are:
    SHA256(89FXAU52.F4a)= b8eac08d4e7de2d1e5747ae70e0529bc82be58e2686dd62a62 f3e9e45dbd2e61
    SHA256(89FXAU72.F3x)= 65aee80b6346c671c2057dd75618153c6cae8628b4712ad000 862c1788aa81bd
    MD5(89FXAU52.F4a)= 23d434fc82675f4b5f4056fc976a251f
    MD5(89FXAU72.F3x)= 8b8dea0ce854c73c2bcaef406b54a3a8

    I seem to have Ethernet link issues since I updated to F4a, but this could be entirely unrelated. On Linux, it usually helps to pull the cable out and plug it back in, but not always. Inside the BIOS, I get random Short/Open reports on one interface. And I'm pretty sure I turned the Ethernet powersaving stuff off.
    Anyway, I'll investigate more and post into the appropriate thread if the problem persists.
