Extended Frequency Range 2 (XFR 2)

Many enthusiasts choose premium cooling in their PCs, and 2nd Generation AMD Ryzen™ desktop processors can automatically reward that choice with XFR 2. For example: All 2nd Generation AMD Ryzen™ processors can take advantage of the lower temperatures offered by premium cooling to enable higher multicore performance.1

Extended Frequency Range (XFR)

Automatic extra performance boost for enthusiasts' systems with premium processor cooling.2,3

  • Permits CPU speeds above and beyond ordinary Precision Boost limits
  • Clock speed scales with cooling performance
  • Fully automated; no user input required

Mobile Extended Frequency Range (mXFR)

Enabling greater processor performance with a premium notebook chassis.3

  • Higher processor clock speeds offer more performance to the user.
  • A premium notebook cooling solution can comfortably and quietly handle these higher energy requirements.3 mXFR allows AMD Ryzen™ mobile processors to offer faster performance in laptop systems.3

Precision Boost

Fine-tuned processor performance adjusted in real time to meet the performance demands of your game or app.

  • Adjusts clock speeds in 25MHz increments to optimize performance
  • Clock speed changes can occur without pausing work


Precision Boost 2

Gracefully raises processor frequencies for snappier performance on any number of CPU cores.

  • The AMD Ryzen™ processor monitors its own energy consumption and temperature.
  • When the processor knows it's running cool and quiet, it can raise clock speeds in precise 25MHz steps for any application


Neural Net Prediction

A true artificial intelligence inside every AMD Ryzen™ processor employs an artificial neural network to understand your applications and anticipate the next steps of your workflow in real time. These “powers of prediction” can boost performance by steering your apps and games down the most efficient paths inside the processor.



Pure Power

A sophisticated grid of smart sensors that monitors CPU temperature, resource usage and power draw brings cool and quiet operation to your AMD Ryzen™ processor with intelligent power optimization circuits, plus the low power requirements of an advanced 14nm FinFET manufacturing technology.



Smart Prefetch

Sophisticated learning algorithms understand the inner workings of your applications and anticipate what data they might need. Smart Prefetch predictively brings that data into the AMD Ryzen™ processor for fast and responsive computing.

Footnotes

‡AMD SenseMI technology is built into all Ryzen™ processors, but specific features and their enablement may vary by product and platform. For specific capabilities of different processor models, visit www.amd.com/ryzenspecs. If your system is pre-built, contact your manufacturer for additional information

  • AMD defines premium processor cooling as a combination of ambient temperature and thermal solution that results in processor temperatures below 60 degrees Celsius while the CPU is processing the system workload. GD-118
  • AMD’s product warranty does not cover damages caused by overclocking, even when overclocking is enabled via AMD hardware and/or software
  • mXFR enablement must meet AMD requirements. Not enabled on all notebook designs. Check with manufacturer to confirm “amplified mXFR performance” support. GD-125

1. Testing done by AMD performance labs 8/30. Systems tested were: Lenovo Yoga 530 with AMD Ryzen 5 2500U, 8GB DDR4, AMD Driver 17.40, and Windows 10; Lenovo Yoga 530 with Intel Core i5-8250U, 8GB DDR4, Intel Driver 23.20.16.4973, and Windows 10. 3DMark11 Professional Edition measures graphics performance and PCMark 10 measures system performance. In 3DMark11 Professional Edition: Preset = Performance, the AMD system scored 3409 3DMarks and consumed 15W (~223 performance per watt) while the Intel system scored 1680 3DMarks at 14.8W (~113 performance per watt). In PCMark 10, the AMD system scored 3337 PCMarks at 38.1C. The Intel system scored 3193 at 38.1C. PC manufacturers may vary confi gurations and drivers yielding different results. RVM-130

4. Precision Boost Overdrive requires a 2nd Gen Ryzen 2000X series processor with AMD 400-series chipset motherboard. Because Precision Boost Overdrive enables operation of the processor outside of specifi cations and in excess of factory settings, use of the feature invalidates the AMD product warranty and may also void warranties offered by the system manufacturer or retailer.
