Gigabyte statement on exceeding 1.3V SOC Voltage on AMD AM5 motherboards

We would like to address the recent media reports regarding the SOC Voltage exceeding 1.3 V on GIGABYTE’s AMD AM5 motherboards especially when EXPO is enabled in the latest beta BIOS.

GIGABYTE respects and appreciates media’s support and favor to GIGABYTE motherboards for long time. In terms of the SOC Voltage measurement, the authentic measurement point and method is critical since the SOC Voltage will differ by that. The CPU internal SOC Voltage (SVI3 interface) is the most crucial indicator to motherboards, and, in general, the PWM Output Voltage will be higher than the CPU internal SOC Voltage (SVI3 interface) due to various physical factors.

Users can use HWiNFO software to accurately monitor the CPU internal SOC Voltage (SVI3 interface), which is indicated as “CPU VDDCR_SOC Voltage (SVI3 TFN)” in HWiNFO. This value is reported by the internal sensor of the CPU to show the true voltage. GIGABYTE uses HWiNFO to monitor the SOC Voltage on AM5 motherboards and it is under 1.3 V, which is officially confirmed by AMD. The full lineup of GIGABYTE AM5 motherboards follows AMD’s latest SOC Voltage 1.3 V Guideline when EXPO is enabled. Please refer to the video below for more details.

GIGABYTE consistently works closely with AMD and follows AMD’s guidelines to fully comply with AMD’s official specifications and requirements. We appreciate all the attention and support from media and customers. It has always been our motivation to deliver more innovative and breakthrough products to our customers. As a leading motherboard manufacturer, we will continue to provide top-quality products for users to enjoy the best PC experience.
