    Re: AMD Precision Boost Overdrive 2 tunes up your single thread perf

    wtf, why is this 5000 series only? Is there really a difference in architecture that prevents this applying to 3000 series? Is it because the single thread 3900x would be the same as the 5900x once this is enabled so they don't want to undermine their sales?

    It doesn't look that much different from the original PBO on ryzen 3000, so it might just be a release to try and keep themselves in the press with positive stuff.

    No,just like when AMD admitted recently SAM is being brought to Intel and Nvidia:
    https://www.extremetech.com/gaming/3...vidia-hardware

    Yet,apparently Zen2 has this functionality under Linux for yonks. Yet no mention of Zen,Zen+ or Zen2. The same as when AMD decided to pull PCI-E 4.0 off B450/X470 despite OEMs wanting to support it.

    Because they can,and it gives another reason for people to buy the new shiny.

    that's my point - it isn't much different from the original PBO, it's just coded better now they've had longer to refine it. It just sticks two fingers up at those of us who paid to go Ryzen 3000 which is still current retail stock and really should be being supported.

    Don't worry!! People will just invert their criticisms of Intel and Nvidia,because the hero does it now.

    I'll admit AMD have confused the heck out of me with this PB stuff. PBO2 isn't Precision Boost2, which isn't all-core overclocking...

    This graphic I think sums it up nicely (you need to have the mind of a child like me).

    at least they didn't dash in a predicted extrapolation of future iterations...
