Ryzen 1700 stock core speed variation?

Jump to solution

I have a new Ryzen 1700, ASUS Prime B350-Plus motherboard, 16Gb DDR4 -2166 MHz, ASUS NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070.

The bios, core speeds, and voltage is set to the factory settings. No overclocking. When I run the Ryzen Master program it shows that the cores are running at different speeds at idle, although they are all set for 3000. Cores 1-4 are 2700, 5-7 are 2400, and Core 8 is 3000. Is this normal? I bought the system as a open box item and my concern is that the system might have been messed with and something damaged..

Nope, they adjust power states faster than it can be displayed, and the Ryzen profile splits the difference between High Performance and Balanced as far as aggressiveness in clocking is concerned, so it will linger in higher clock states longer.

If you are using the Balanced or Ryzen power profiles, then yes, it will clock down under idle conditions.

I am using the Ryzen power profile so I understand the clock down. Core 8 staying at 3000 shouldn't concern me?
