So PBO doesn't seem to be working at all on my Ryzen 7 2700x, Turning it off or on produces the same results in Benchmarks i.e. Cinebench etc and in game. My boosts stays the same in Cinebench with PBO on max clock is 3.998Mhz, off? 3.998Mhz. In BFV on = 4.050Mhz off = 4.050Mhz. Single core boosts stay the same as well ~4.350Mhz. Temps are below 60c. My Cinebench score is actually a bit higher with it off which seems super weird to me.
