move your mouse around without marking/highlightimng anything, that should allow max boost. While you do it, watch the Volts, thats when the Volts are allowed to spike too. Just when you ask for serious workloads, it will need more Ampere and thus, in order to not disobey the preprogrammed heat/load/vcore triangel it has to clock down.

Buildzoid has a fantastic video showing this. Forme, tbh,it has a bad taste as Lisa did not underline this "limitation", al they did say was " Turbo is xy high on that version of Ryzen blabla" Imho, that is not lying, but it is also not the full truth.

Still, I like those Ryzens
I know some people are saying that, but I don’t think it’s true. It think immature BIOS is to blame and it will eventually get sorted. Mine doesn’t exhibit that behaviour, I never see 4.6ghz.

Let's hope you are right and my info is based on immature Bios versions.

Looking at the numbers tho, that is hard to believe.

I hope so too, I'd hate to think I paid as much as I did to max out at 4.2Ghz when I could have paid less than half for a 3600 that boosts to the same single core frequency.

Indeed, I may even consider starting an RMA process if the BIOS doesn't fix it.

the important part:
quote:
Take the monstrous 12-core, 24-thread Ryzen 7 3900X. AMD specifies it as having a base clock of 3.8GHz, and a maximum boost clock of 4.6GHz. According to Silicon Lottery’s stats, every single 3900X it tested can hit an all-core overclock of 4.0GHz. Bump that up to 4.05GHz and 87 percent pass, and just 68 percent manage to hit 4.1GHz on all cores. From there, the survival rate drops precipitously, with just 35 percent of 3900X samples able to crack 4.15GHz, and a mere six percent hitting an all-core overclock of 4.2GHz.
At Case King, der8auer managed to get a few samples to 4.25GHz and 4.3GHz, but that site doesn’t list survivor rates like Silicon Lottery.
