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.
