https://community.amd.com/community/gam ... -a-new-sdk
Today we have some important updates for you concerning processor boost behavior, desktop idle behavior, and a new monitoring SDK. The first two changes will be arriving in BIOSes based on AGESA 1003ABBA, and we are planning to make the SDK public on developer.amd.com with a target release date of September 30.
I get the feeling from the rest of that blog post that maximum boost frequencies are only hit for very brief periods.

I saw the video version of that last week, and am glad I stuck with the Corsair Vengeance DDR4 3200 kit. The performance uplift from replacing it wouldn't have been worthwhile.

Same here, when I eventually pick up a Zen 2 I won't be in a rush to upgrade my DDR4-3200.
Because it's already CL14/B-die, overclocking it should be pretty trivial if required but it's plenty fast enough at stock.

It rarely is... Memory overclocking tend to be as useless as CPU overclocking, you usually trade system stability for a couple frames.

Integrated graphics are still hamstrung by decent memory bandwidth/latency though, other than that it's often the least of the system bottlenecks.

It would be a lot of fun if AMD stacked some 4 GB of dedicated memory to the integrated GPU on top of the CPU, it would give Intel integrated GPUs a thorough a***-kicking. Maybe even some integrated Nvidia chips.

Gamersnexus have got their hands on the ABBA AGESA update for single-core boost frequencies:



TL;DR - looks like the fix works, without any noticeable change in voltages.

Nice, ABBA generally delivered a good old tune anyway. :sweet:
