Precision Boost 2
AMD Ryzen processors monitor the system's energy consumption, temperatures, and other factors to automatically raise clock speeds, allowing applications to perform faster.
Precision Boost Overdrive
Precision Boost Overdrive technology takes advantage of your compatible motherboard's design to boost clock speeds higher and for longer periods of time. It also allows you overclock the processor at the touch of a button.
AMD StoreMI Technology
AMD StoreMI technology helps to improve load times and overall system performance by combining solid-state drives and mechanical hard drives into a single hybrid storage drive. Frequently used files and programs are cached onto the fast SSD while other files are stored on the high-capacity HDD.
AMD Ryzen VR Ready Premium
Ryzen VR Ready Premium processors are designed to meet or exceed the recommended specifications from the top HMD manufacturers, including Oculus Rift, HTC Vive, and Windows Mixed Reality for smooth performance.
AMD Ryzen Master Utility
Personalized Performance
The AMD Ryzen Master Utility provides you with multiple custom profiles to store CPU, GPU, and DDR4 memory configurations. Use it to configure performance parameters for the active cores and adjust memory times. You can also optimize general performance or fine tune your favorite applications.
System Monitoring
Monitor your system in real-time using the AMD Ryzen Master Utility, which features a histogram of per-core clock rates and temperature, including average and peak readings.

What frequency of RAM is preferable for this ...

What frequency of RAM is preferable for this processor? 4000 - 4400MHz?
Asked by: Viktor
3200MHZ CL14 or 3600MHZ CL16 is the "sweet spot" price/performance wise. Anything more than that depends on the Motherboard and if you can clock the Infinity Fabric to 1900+ or not. Some cheap motherboards may even have time with 1800MHZ Infinity Fabric, making 3600MHZ RAM a bad choice; but that's VERY rare. For best performance you want to keep Infinity Fabric clock and RAM at a 1:1 ratio. 1600 MHZ infinity fabric + 3200MHz memory (remember memory is Double Data Rate so it's really running at 1600Mhz base). 1800 Infinity Fabric + 3600Mhz Memory. Etc...
