2700X Boost clocks feasible?

Hello all,


Curious whether I'm seeing a misread with HWMonitor (v1.38.0), or whether my 2700X at stock (w/XFR2 &/or PBO) can actually achieve the peak speeds reported.

I haven't been able to actively catch when the CPU may be boosting to these clocks, but my system remains on 24/7 and is idle for a lot of the time.


When I actively watch RyzenMaster, I rarely see speeds >4.2GHz, but HWMonitor reports that at times, I boost to 4.6-4.8GHz.... and extremely rarely, a couple of cores have boosted to just over 4.9GHz?


I know the process for boosting is not 100% crystal clear, but is a combination of voltage, temps & VRM (?).

Temps remain pretty cool, never really exceeding ~60'C recorded in either RyzenMaster or HWMonitor - although there can be the very occasional spike to 69-70'C which doesn't seem unreasonable.


Supposed clocks being achieved seem impossible though, right?




Supposedly >4.8GHz


Latest, all costs >4.8GHz, a couple peaked over 4.9GHz.
