    Re: AMD Radeon Software adds SAM support for RX5000 GPUs

    Radeon drivers have had auto overclocking for years? I've used it to boost my rx480 to above rx580 speeds for a long time. The only difference is it now works with the CPU or am I missing something?

    If so Radeon master already had this option and it seemed to do very little to my 3600 except increase the heat (and therefore fan noise) so not really sure what the innovation is here?

    Presumably this is leveraging SAM and other recent improvements to yield further performance increases.

    But I'm sure that it's just as much a matter of drawing attention to the fact that the option exists, and making it easier to use - the average user would be unlikely to have Radeon Master installed, but Radeon Software is (I believe?) now part of every AMD driver installation.

    Based on the Hexus description, this is probably more like auto-overclocking to a combined TDP target, ie if your GPU is idle then you can dynamicaly overclock the CPU more.

    Re: AMD Radeon Software adds SAM support for RX5000 GPUs

    I can try it and see what happen, tredripper 12/24 core ( gen 1 ) and 5700XT.
    Normally my system idle at a whopping 150 - 170 watt

    Not sure if it will work with my CPU, the GFX card i have not done any OC on, cuz why do that when no one make a bloody game to play

    NOPE the software do not detect my CPU, also no SAM support for me.

    You'd need to turn on SAM at the BIOS level. Try seeing if there are any recent BIOS updates for your board.

    Re: AMD Radeon Software adds SAM support for RX5000 GPUs

    There is not, i am on a X399 aourus extreme, and the latest F5 bios are about 2 years old or something like that.
    In the time i have had the board i have only upgraded Bios 1 time as i recall, and i am mindful about these things.

    F5 - 2019/12/16 - Update AGESA 1.1.0.2 + Supports 4*PCIe x4 bifurcation
