    Yeah it can be enabled at bios level like traditional overclocking options but at the moment, PBO isn't working properly and from what I'm aware, overclocking is generally tricky on Zen2. Personally I'd just like to either be able to increase the single core boost limit and/or increase what speed all cores can boost upto and nothing more but I think we're going to need a few more bios revisions to get that kind of behaviour enabled. Until then, most people report that PBO just causes CPUs to operate hotter without improving performance and so is best left avoided for the time being and until then tweak RAM instead to improve performance.

    Thanks for this - I'm going to modify stock settings from PBO / on *on mine* to disabled & see what results that produces for me, much appreciated

    Small update :
    I am decided to go for 3700X IF only i can find a good deal on Black Friday. If not, 3600X it is.

    But I am torn when it comes to graphics:
    Should go for a heavily discounted RX 580, or second hand Vega 56? Or Navi?
    Yes, maybe incoming Navi 12/14 could be a better deal, but for now there are not released, let alone ready to buy them.
    Budget is 250 top, and I am on 1080p monitor, gaming is not my top priority.
    More casual Linux gaming, so I am favoring AMD here

    hmm I feel like leaning more towards Vega/Navi ... despite Navi's issues which will iron out. Vega is well established at least and a great 1080p card, refined drivers on linux no? (Here's a comparative)
