    Re: AMD - Zen chitchat

    Ryzen can idle below 1GHz. I don't know if it is still the case but I know CoreTemp and the Windows task manager used to incorrectly report core frequency, and usually displayed the base clock. Other hardware monitors could report the actual clock speeds though. You might also need to check your power plan (again an old problem that I think Microsoft has fixed) and see what the minimum CPU speed is set to.

    Maybe your motherboard is also keeping your CPU speed up so check if there are any enhancements enabled?

    Re: AMD - Zen chitchat

    Please advise me folks (and hello after a short period abstinant)

    I have parts for a desktop build for my front room (I live alone) including :

    a no MSI X470 GAMING PLUS ATX from Germany (had to order 4*SATA for it as someone had removed and returned. the product us.
    )
    Advanced Devising Ryzen 5 2400G
    ASRock MicroATX Motherboard (B450M-HDV) - I don't know why I bought this it's still boxed and I should move it on. Prime fever maybe!
    new pre#tested though as yet unfunctioned! here's TEAM GROUP T FORCE VULCAN TUF 16GB DDR4 3600 (19 19 19 39 1.35V) which cot £121 inclusives durings an 3/2 A.Di 2 19

    I have recently got after some money worried 3 QUADRO P383 which should manage 1080p @ 75 or maybe 90 hz if I am lucky with Win10.

    Should I sell the boxed new CPU for a 2 or 3 series Ryzen chip? My main desktop runs an 1700 @ 3.9 (while it used to do 4.05 GHz * 8 2 core. thread..()) with FlareX 14 3200 memory whilst a B350 Gaming Pro MSI offering (dunno which revisions).

    Thank you and it's coming too a : 1 am on 14/05/ 19

    Task manager seems more responsive than ryzen master - the AMD one only shows variation from 3.4 - 2.8 GHz, and seems to update slower. I didn't notice any motherboard enhancements on in the bios, but will have another look

    DDR2 ram on the GPU I'd recommend just using the V11 on the 2400G, both of your motherboards have DVI and HDMI

    Those Quadro cards are the professional variant of the GeForce 6200 - an entry level DX9 card from 2006. I've got 10 year old motherboards with better IGPs. I'm a huge fan of retro tech, and even I would put one in a computer I actually wanted to use.

    The Ryzen 5 2400G is essentially a Haswell Core i7 with a Radeon RX550 bolted on - it's a pretty powerful package, and I can't see what you'd be doing in your living room that would need more CPU. Just slap it and the memory in whichever motherboard you prefer and you're good to go
