Ryzen 5000 processors will increase performance (3 photos)


Fierce competition between the leadersprocessor manufacturers Intel and AMD, more recently, has concentrated on desktop systems. The upcoming announcement in January of 11th Gen Intel Core (Rocket Lake-S) desktop processors will show Intel's success in surpassing the Ryzen 5000 Zen 3 (Vermeer) processors announced in October 2020.

Released on 7nm Ryzen 5000 process technology alreadyhave taken the single-threaded performance lead from Intel, and developers continue to increase processor power with software updates. The next update will be an extension of the proprietary Precision Boost Overdrive (PBO) technology called Precision Boost Overdrive 2, with the arrival of which AMD engineers announce another increase in the performance of the chip.


Future Updates for AMD 400/500 Boards with MicrocodeAGESA 1.1.8.0 will be released in early December. The update will optimize the PBO technology algorithm implemented with the AMD Curve Optimization tool, the main purpose of which is adaptive voltage reduction.

A kind of dynamic "undervolting" inautomatic mode uses data received from numerous built-in sensors. This will allow the voltage to be dynamically adjusted to match the operating mode to improve performance. The user will be able to control the algorithm in the UEFI settings with a gradation of 3-5 mV, using thirty steps of adjustment.


Next year, the use of dynamicUndervolting will also be available for the Ryzen Master app. According to AMD engineers, based on preliminary tests, the introduction of AMD Curve Optimization will increase single-threaded performance by 2%, and for a multi-threaded load, the increase will be 10%.
