AMD Promises To Fix Ryzen 3rd Gen Single Core Boost Clock Issues

In the recent tweet from official AMD Ryzen twitter account, the company made brave statement about fixing the advertised maximum boost clock frequency issues that have been confirmed by prominent enthusiast Der8auer through highly accurate survey presented from his official YouTube channel. He was very frustrated about the real numbers after getting them from his own conducted survey asking people whether their newly purchased Ryzen 3000 series are hitting advertised boost clocks or not. Participants were 2726 individuals in total who reported actual boost clock frequencies from their PCs. Results came out shocking for some tech journalists. Only 5.6% survey participants claimed that their Ryzen 9 3900X hitting 4.6 GHz single core boost clock frequency and the rest percentage of the individuals responded with lower maximum clock speeds.

AMD had a quick answer to this problem: “AMD is pleased with the strong momentum of 3rd Gen AMD Ryzen (TM) processors in the PC enthusiast and gaming communities communities. We closely monitor community feedback on our products and understand that some 3rd gen AMD Ryzen users are reporting boost clock speeds below the expected processor boost frequency. While processor boost frequency is dependent on many variables, including workload, system design, and cooling solution, we have closely reviewed the feedback from our customers and have identified an issue in our firmware that reduces boost frequency in some situations. We are in the process of preparing a BIOS update for our motherboard partners that addresses that issue and includes additional boost performance optimizations. We will provide an update on September 10 to the community regarding the availability of the BIOS.”

Now, whole world will be in waiting game started by AMD. Let’s think positive about this issue. Perhaps new 7nm technology requires some specific tweaking before getting matured to 7nm+.
