Sure it does affect performance cause you are supplying less energy for the cpu, but only if you are someone that runs cinebench and check you score every time you boot your pc. I lost around 30-50 points in cinebench 15 with that offset however I got 10-13 degrees of temperature drop. And I'll keep like this cause I'm not fine seeing the cpu reaching 83C playing ashes of singularity for example. While gaming or so I don't notice any performance drop, only temperature
And by that the voltage range I see is around 0.7-1.4v against the 0.7-1.5v.
There's a lot of talk about it around Reddit, there's a post from Robert that works at amd saying not to undervolt or use negative offset cause it will - logically - drop performance, but hey, I'm not fine with these temps and this performance drop is fine for ME having in mind the temperature drop. Even Robert saying that's the way these chips were meant for. The voltage, thermals, etc, it's all fine, that's the way it is supposed to be.
So far I didn't not have any crash, freeze, or bsod with the offset or even setting voltage to fixed 1.3v.
I'm running it with a taichi x370 fclk 1800 1:1 good timings. All round like never before with zen1. Not a single freeze, crash, I feel I'm in heaven comparing with all trouble I had with zen1 and same mobo/ram.
I've been using the 3900x since release date.
