XFR works just fine... boosting cores to 4.3+ GHz in light loads. PBO simply raises the TDP and current limits, so you get better clocks when more of the CPU is stressed.
Specifically, the BIOS PBO switch is just maxing out the TDP (to 1000 watts), but it's leaving the two current limiters to default values. You need to use Ryzen Master to get those to the maximum. The prior BIOS just maxed all those out. No Ryzen Master needed.
Also, Ryzen Master PBO settings won't survive when the computer wakes up from sleep.
Total BS. I might try modding the BIOS or just downgrading.
