So far, performance is better though clocks aren't much better. I've only bettered my CB15 score by 4points.
I didn't play much under default settings, but on 2501 default settings, I would see 4.6/4.63GHz on light loads, which I didn't see, but I need to test longer (not tonight).
I can definitely say performance has increased and temps have dropped. I think my CCD2 might be doing more work than it was, but that's just a theory ATM!
For BIOS OCers, things aren't too different settings-wise (so far) but for Ryzen Master OCers they will have to get used to the new voltage readout and lower temps (Idle 27c).
Clearly RM is still fudging these values in some way, and/or smoothing them more. I'm still confused as to why they even put a 'CPU Voltage' read-out when it's still not a 'real' voltage at all.
I enabled both settings (CPPC I think) for telling OS which cores to use, and dfc and c-states, but still fastest cores are not selected.. In fact now it's picking the slowest core on CCD1 sometimes. Not sure release ver of windows has the newest scheduler.
Thanks again to
for giving us the opportunity to try this out. If we don't get new bios tomorrow we'll still be able to test the new SMU and boost behaviour.
One last thing - Ryzen Master is still incapable of showing correct max core speeds. Where HWInfo shows me Core 0 had max of 4.60GHz, RM shows the max for core 0 as 4293MHz. Which is right? Answers on a postcard..., but my money is on HWInfo, and AISuite, and Aida64. Good thing really or everyone would be thinking that their 4.6GHz boost CPU could only attain 4.293GHz.
It's very late, I'm not going to test any more or I'll make errors, but this is very encouraging!
