AMD released the chipset driver version 4.06.10.651 for its platforms aimed at AMD Ryzen 6000 Rembrandt series notebooks. The main feature implemented is support for USB 4.0. This is what we reported last year.
USB 4.0 is the latest version of the USB connectivity standard and brings several improvements over the USB 3.2 specification, including an increase in bandwidth to 40 Gbps on the “higher” ports.
The Ryzen 6000 family chips were the first from AMD to fully adopt the USB 4 standard, with the standard being built into the processor itself. However, the system would require dedicated ports for the feature to work.
The new driver version is now available for Windows 10 and 11 operating systems. In addition to USB 4.0, the build adds bug fixes and support for the new processors in the Ryzen 9 Mobile lineup.
Another five drivers were also added in this chipset update and they include Wireless Button Driver, PMF Driver, PPM Provisioning File Driver, AMS Mailbox Driver, and S0i3 Filter Driver.
In addition, the new driver is also available for A320, B350, X370, B450, X470, X399, A520, B550, X570, TRX40, and WRX80 desktop motherboards. Finally, AMD highlighted that some problems can happen on some systems, such as installation failure.
