    AMD's Ryzen Master Overclocking Software Overview

    AMD has been stepping up its game in the CPU and motherboard arena for the last year. Its Ryzen Master software is an overclocking utility that is motherboard agnostic, which allows overclocking and performance tuning from within Windows. With new chipsets comes a new iteration of this software. We take it for a test drive and let you know what we thought of it.

    Check out the Digitimes article tomorrow about Asmedia showing growth because of strength in AMD chipsets. In the ticker.
    Edit- and speaking of the "golden cores" in Ryzenmaster. Would like to see what a badass 2500X looks like with four cores disabled.

    Thanks for the article - I will give this software a try. However, after reading Kyle's article AMD Precision Boost 2 and Wraith Prism Deep Dive I was not really planning on OCing my 2700X. Seems like getting a better cooler along with precision boost 2 will give the same, and in some cases, better results than OCing.

    yep, seems whatever "magic" AMD engineers did for the 2xxx series chips they did a very bang up job on redesigning the XFR/Precision boost compared to the 1xxx generation, awkward but nice at the same time (less monkeying around you have to do to get everything to just work out of the box the better) but, means those whose "job" it is to monkey around are not "happy" because of this either LOL

    I SO want to get a Ryzen 2600-2700x, but prices really are all over the damn place right now does not help much :(

    Agreed :) I love messing around, but the fact that it just works out of the box is awesome.

    The software is good, but the hardware is mostly tapped out anyway. No OC headroom with Ryzen at all.

    On the 2700X, yes.

    I have a Ryzen 2700X and AMD Ryzen Master gaming mode seems to want to want to enable Legacy Compatibility Mode ... which I had thought was only a Threadripper feature.

    It may help for a newb to rephrase your frustration with proprietary mobo utilities.

    For us it a trust thing.

    We are so wary of having our time wasted by bloatware, we cant be fagged with investing in a dubious learning curve.

    I am sure some very good software goes unused, because sorting it from the bad software by the uninitiated isn't worth the time invested.

    So for amd to provide a not only unified utility, but also a good one, is a significant win for consumers.

    The take home here for us is it is worth the bother of checking it out. Thanks.

    Yep, humans cant compete anymore, which leaves us free to focus on the all important memory (which includes Fabric) clocks.

    I like Ryzen Master on my R7 1700. But I thought with 2700x and the PBR2 etc overclocking was redundant?

    Well, Ryzen Master works on all Ryzen CPUs...
