AMD Plans to switch from AGESA to Open Source OpenSIL Firmware


Recommended Posts

AMD Plans to Transition from AGESA to Open Source OpenSIL Firmware by 2026 for Enhanced Security & Simplicity



AMD Announces OpenSIL as AGESA's Replacement for Enhanced Security and Simplified Scaling by 2026. Raj Kapoor, the Head of Firmware Architecture at AMD, stated that this transition will signify the end of an era, with openSIL replacing AGESA across server platforms and other client devices in 2026.


OpenSIL is already compatible with AMD's 4th generation EPYC Genoa processors and is projected to be prepared for integration with Zen 6 or Zen 7 desktop PC processors. AMD aims to gradually introduce openSIL firmware across its entire product lineup, simplifying processes, facilitating scaling, and enhancing overall security.



I had no idea there were open source options for this kind of thing.
