Curious as to what other users of AMD's 2600X chip are getting whilst gaming or with other system demanding apps.
I'm getting over 4.6GHz sometimes & not unusual now it seems MSI have matured the bios for my motherboard.
Just had a run of Skyrim SE & getting 4.66GHz on all cores during gaming... :)

That's just what I was thinking. Unless there has been some tinkering with overclocking, and you got a darn good overclock at that, a 2600X isn't going to hit 4.6-4.7GHz. The max boost it will go to with stock settings should be 4.2GHz.

Even PBO does not push that hard 4.5 max.

HW monitor is a master in fail readings. I have seen that countless times on my own pc. As you can see in the screenshot when my CPU is at maximum load, HWmonitor still shows my CPU´s stock clock even throw its oc to 4.4 GHz as CPU´z shows and also look at the max temperature in the top with 139C and 426C. That is truly fail reading as has my pc been this hot, it has been dead a long time a go.



Use CPU-Z. That is by far better and more precise in showing actual clock speeds.

I've seen peaks at 4.7GHz on HWMonitor, but I'm sure that's some weird glitch or it spikes for a fraction of a second. Under gaming loads my 2600X sustains 4-4.1GHz on all cores with spikes up to 4.2GHz.

Another option is to look at the performance tab on task manager (on Windows 10). It seems to show a really precise number.

Oh, what controversy HWMonitor awakens on this forum... :laugh:
The boost as can be seen in the screenshot I posted is not for 100% on ALL cores.
Seems that CPU-Z from the same lot of devs that make HWMonitor is good enough to show our specs with across many enthusiasts forums BUT not HWMonitor for well.. ahem.. monitoring..
Everything else listed in HWMonitor is accurate according to bios info on my board, but CPU clocks are not according to responses here?

Use CPU-Z. That is by far better and more precise in showing actual clock speeds.
CPU-Z does not record real time XFR2 boosts whilst they are actually happening so they can be viewed after the game/app is closed.


Which version of hwmonitor you use.For ryzen use HWinfo64 instead
1.40

It's 4,25GHz, but that's still far away from 4.7. Must be something wrong with readings.

Edit.: HWiNFO gives pretty accurate readings.

Fact is, Ryzen has a max boost and XFR also has a limited boost range. Just simply put two and two together and it never gets to the frequency you saw. There is no magic here. Just bad readings. Similarly we don't see people with AMD CPUs saying those run at 120C or -120C, yet they can show that.

There's been a plethora of evidence posted here that what you are seeing is simply NOT POSSIBLE. Choosing to ignore that evidence because it contradicts what you believe achieves nothing, except make you look like a moron. Either do what you've been told to verify the clocks (using other apps) or stop wasting all our time.
