as the title suggests... Why isnt the 3800x or any of the other new Ryzen cpus not hitting their advertised speeds?
Not sure what that thread about idle clock/voltage bug has got to do with OPs question but I'm honestly surprised there hasn't been any real sort of outrage about this. The boost clock speed on the box is only achieved using smoke (high voltage) and mirrors (nano second boost duration).
I don't know about yours, but my 3800x boosts to above 4.5Ghz currently. Even without XFR/PBO enabled. Mine may be due to running a pretty good AiO liquid cooler though.
I'm running air, but its a Cryorig H5u, cpu doesnt get over 52c.
conraire, are you running the Ryzen power plan in windows? I dont have that option for some reason, I guess I need to manually install it..
Found my problem... I installed the chipset drivers from Asrock's site, which are outdated because Asrock support is garbage..
I'll never buy another Asrock board, they are the slowest manufacturer to update bios' and technical support issues..
Installed the amd chipset driver package from AMD, then enabled the Ryzen Balanced power plan.. I installed Ryzen Master and have been playing with it.. I got my Cinebench r20 single core score 521, multicore 5036. Its now boosting to 4.500ghz..
I got the same issue. Latest drivers and Bios Ryzen 3900x on Asus Prime x570 pro. never get more than 4.2mhz on single core even for a split second. This is my first and last build from AMD i should have known better than to buy into this hype. AMD is always been second best to Intel and now they resort to lying to get customers.
