In this article by our resident Ryzen tweaking guru "1usmus" we present a customized power plan for AMD's new Ryzen 3000 processors. The new power plan ensures workloads run on the best cores, which not only increases boost clocks, but also stops threads from bouncing between cores too often.

Sorry to say, but this seems to do nothing in combination with AGESA 1.0.0.4B on my Gigabyte board.
Or rather, I should say, I see no difference between this and the normal AMD Ryzen power plan on my 3800X.
CPU core utilization is jumping all over the place with either power plan and I don't see any higher boost speeds.

Not all systems have a problem, so pay attention to comfort in games.
Do you already have 4500 MHz?
Yeah and then some at times (not in CB though), obviously depends on what's going on. It seems the boost clock speeds are slightly lower with the current F10a UEFI compared to a couple of previous F7 releases though.
Clarified my post above a bit.
Not a complaint, just feedback.

Thx 1usmus for your efforts.

With my X470 Hero WIFI i couldnt find Power Supply Idle Control and what exactly is PPC Adjustment?
I have some Screenshots, can you check them out pls?
Can i now install your power plan, or do i need to change something else?

but what about cinebench score? can not find scores in the article. frequency is cool and all of that, but is there any perfomance uplift?

Ran CB15, got 210 with either power profile enabled.

try to disabled PBO , 4550 its reality :)
Not had a problem hitting those kind of speeds anyhow. Was hitting 4,600 at one point and that's supposedly only the second fastest core in my CPU.
This was with an older UEFI release though.
Now 4,525 or 4,550 is about as high as I see, but the boost Voltages are also slightly lower on AGESA 1.0.0.4B on this board.

Currently boosting over 4550 with 3800x light load.Give program a whirl any how.
Thanks

PPC for example, many manufacturers of motherboards hide, but if you didn’t find them, don’t worry, the main settings that interest all users are present

I'm curious... with using the latest agesa which runs my cpu normally (boosts right, etc), what does this do over and above that? If installing this solves the same problem the updated agesa does, what is the point?

+25-50Mhz
The result in games, not only in frequency ;)

Not seeing it either (agesa 4b)... :(
(EDIT: Will test properly later)

I also dont see what tangible gains 25-50mhz has in games...nor did your testing show any game results... just cinebench. Did I miss it?

Think he's asking if the excessive light load boosting that Amd fixed by reducing Windows-CPU communication to 15ms would be undone by your new power plan.
Would it? I'm quite concerned too, don't want max boost when I open a window because my fans go crazy.

With my 3700x it seems to help a little. Testing with SuperPi it stays on my fastest CCX and uses my two fastest cores on that CCX. I gained about 25-50Mhz boost pushing it up to 4425Mhz. I tried a quick test in ROTTR and it also seems to have a small boost of 25-50Mhz. I am currently using ABBA.

I disabled PBO like you advised which I normally run on manual because the 3700x has quite low limits. Will I lose all benifits if I re-enable manual PBO?

Thanks for your work and for the easy install method.

Edit - I scored 511pts in CB20 single Core which is about 5pts higher!

My CB SC Score did not change, because 4.2GHz before, 4.2GHz after^^
I think 3600 users have to activate PBO + Auto OC but Scalar maybe to 1? But 1usmus said we should deactivate PBO hmmm....

Another question is, that i set CPU @ stock with an - offset of 0.087V, will that have negative effects to the powerplan, or will the effect be lower compared to stock voltage?
