Good post, thanks
On Ryzen and recent versions of Windows 10 core parking is enable only if the power saving plane is selected on Windows, at least on default registry settings. Using balanced power plane will not enable core parking on recent versions of Windows 10, even if set 0% for the minimum value (which will be ignored according to the minimum power saving value detected at boot time.. you can find it in the system event log). Core parking is useless, especially on desktop, so it's not a big deal.. Core parking is also correctly detected by the task manager, if a core parking time is long enough, you will be able to see it just putting the mouse cursor upon the graphs..
Just because is set to 3900 MHz it doesn't consume the same if the core are most of the time in idle state then under computational processing. Yes, lowering the frequency (and the v-core) helps a lil bit in power saving, but most of the power is consumed only on loading times.
Just leave it to default balanced (or Ryzen Balanced) and lower the minimum power value if it doesn't satisfied your idle power requirements.
Having lower V and about 10 C less when i use the power saving profile (set to 0/100, vs 99/10)0 is fine for me to do non gaming tasks.
i dont need 6 cores to clock at 3.6 ghz to surf the net, just because it takes 1ms longer for cores to wake up.
and if any stating it will impact gaming, should have read my post properly.
i never recommended power savings profile for gaming, and i use/tell ppl to use around 15-20% for min (or track cpu load and use a little more than avg),
and 100% for max on the balanced profile, and switch to that when gaming/encoding etc.
but i still see lower V/temps, without any negative impact on fps vs 99/100.
well using ryzen balanced leaving it to 90 minimum as set default still downclocks in idle, so is fine for me like this. The max power is set 100 by default on that profile
Pardon my extremely noob question, do I simply install this chipset driver for my X570 Aorus Xtreme? Do I need to uninstall anything first? This is my first AMD build since the good old Phenom II (X6 1100T) and Bulldozer (FX8350) days (had both rigs at the same time)
Not a noob question at all - I have a tendency to uninstall/clean install. It's not required; AMD's intention is to allow "in-place upgrades" with all drivers. No harm no foul. The only reason I uninstall, is to erase any settings I have modified that AMD defaults resolve in newer updates.
having 10*C higher cpu temp (idle and not using machine) shows that the cpu DOES consumer more power
compared to running the power saving profile.
so saying you dont need do it is fine, claiming it wont make a difference on power/temps is wrong, and even with min set to 0 and max set to 50% on my 3600, i havent seen lag or stutter
for everyday stuff like browsing/office etc.
and again: just so my rig is 1 micro sec more responsive, i wont waste energy to do so
(yeah, we really need the cpu to boost to 4.2 ghz to surf the web), as im old enough to be able to switch between profiles
(power saving/balanced) depending on use.
So do you double click the thing as soon as it is downloaded or do you need to go into safe mode like with graphics drivers and uninstall etc?
You can install over top just fine.
Yeah, works fine that way.
Do recommend installing the win 1909 update from dvd/usb.
Download the iso, use rufus to make a usb installer and run it from within windows while offline.
lol - what have i done...
ha, i uninstall old and clean out just the same, but aware its overkill for general use.
For drivers, yes.
For win, different story
Ive just gone back to the Recommended Balanced, as on checking my CPU speed in the Task Manager, on the Ryzen Balanced Plan, my 3700X is doing around 4.20GHz, where as on the Recommended Balanced, its only doing around 3.20GHz, and im getting the same performance.
Having set min/max to 0/50% (locking my 3600 @2.2) for power saving profile has ZERO impact on anything but gaming, and even then only on games like FPS or when using dsr to run racing/flying games @4k.
But i dont have my cpu acting like its on meth boosting to 4.2 just because i opened chrome, and having +10C higher temps (avg. Running 240 eisbär) and higher voltage.
Getting a "missing script" error installing the January 2020 drivers on my Ryzen 7 3750H laptop
no prob on my desktop.
I use 1usmus power plan, so far i like it, keep my processor very responsive
I have and Ryzen 3800.
So am I... Just tried installing it a few minutes ago and I keep getting the same error... This is the first time that this has ever happened with any AMD drivers...
