Shocking news for today is coming from overclocking enthusiasts via chiphell chinese forum. User called Csqaslp was able to achieve staggering 4.25 GHz using AMD Ryzen 5 3600 processor due to updated BIOS 188.8.131.52 1025 version. Previously, 3rd Gen Ryzen AMD CPU users couldn’t reach up to advertised boost clock speeds according to Der8auer overclocker’s survey. However, gradual improvements through BIOS fixes AMD Zen 2 processors are finally able to improve burst clock frequency on single core.
Accurate illustration you may see from above image that forum user made HWiNFO64 statistics screenshot while on overclocking mode. As you can see, PBO mode was disabled and user had selected Mode 2 on Base Clock Boost Option within the Advanced CPU Configuration. MSI X570-A Pro was used to fulfill this task. Amazingly, initial two cores are hitting up to 4.25 GHz speed while other cores hovering around 4.1 to 4.2 GHz frequency.
