    Intel one-click Performance Maximizer app now available

    But it only works with a small set of processors and motherboards (9th gen K processor, Z390).

    1.5 Gb? For a tuning app? What are they smoking?

    150mb for the tuning program, the remainder for a generous telemetry package that lets Intel profile you down to; with which nostril you breathe more.

    Z370 and Z390 are basically the same chipset with only a leaning towards slightly better heatsinks/more VRMs, USB-C Gen 2.2 and Weefee.

    To lock it to Z390 is a big FU to Z370 owners.

    Do you mean Ryzen Master? It doesn't do it automatically does it?

    Re: Intel one-click Performance Maximizer app now available

    Intel has taken this opportunity to revamp its Performance Tuning Protection Plan. For a one-off fee of $19.99 you can, for the processor's standard warranty period, be covered for up to one hardware failure "due to catastrophic end-user overclocking".
    Considering only a novice is likely to use this app, I wonder how many would actually have the balls, insured or not, to say "oh, go on then" when presented with the phrase catastrophic end-user overclocking

    That was the tool before Ryzen Master called AMD OverDrive. With turboboost and XFR it became obsolete.

    It's more than just an 'app' it's a mini os that tests the system outside of windows to find the max stable speed of each individual core and all cores combined.

    However it doesn't seem to be able to control fan profiles and so thermal throttles at 4.66GHz all core. Shame with the alienware tool I can hit 4.8GHz all core (5.2GHz low cores)

    All core speed is thermal limited (undervolt increases max speed) but low cores is voltage limited and cant seem to separate the two that well.

    > It repeats this process until there's a crash or error,
    > at which point it drops back down to the previous clock or multiplier setting

    What about DRAM settings? Did I miss something?

    p.s. With all of the attention being given to "AI",
    and with all of the in-house talent Intel enjoys,
    one would expect a very fine marriage of AI
    with more sophistication than tweaks to clock and
    multiplier settings.
