Will AMD team port Ryzen Master software to GNU/Linux, so users can easily overclock and monitor performance? It should be not hard to port it cross-distro with .appimage.
Currently this software is only available for Windows, but it is becomed too far invasive with forced updates and telemetry to use it.
Found this Forum that gives good instructions on how to Overclock the Ryzen CPUs without using Ryzen Master: https://forum.level1techs.com/t/overclock-your-ryzen-cpu-from-linux/126025
Copied from above link:
Except you happen to use Linux. What’s there to do?
Well with this little python application and the help of MSR’s (Model Specific Registers) on Ryzen CPU’s you can manually overclock your Ryzen processor. While it’s running!
Please some Linux Love
no easy way to adjust thermals with out rebooting into bios and changing settings , and no way to disable god awfull RGB ...
and why the heck can we not drop multipliers ??? 3900x can not go lower than 2.2ghz ?
Wel ofc anny linux user whould double oneup this question.
But you must realise most of us are profetionals and if you run amd processors for vfx works getting extra performance is an excellent feature to support and if we break ouer cpu's you can sell us more. what's there to lose?
12 work houers ? that's not even that much money.
AMD, It would be a good idea to have the tools also on Linux for several reasons.
1) It would be a premiere, you will benefit as a brand
2) Majority of games on Steam are already available on Linux, so there is a market
3) Linux users are power users, the community will benefit from their skill to solve questions, problems
As you start looking beyond the personal computer market, having tools on Linux would probably earn you some credibility with the folks building servers and filling out racks.
