    Battlefield 5?
    20.2.1 and earlier should have a profile for it, 20.2.2 removed it likely (Though I don't know for certain.) for stability reasons far as I can see at least comparing the profile files from the two drivers and the crashes reported on AMD's Reddit which then turned into posts about how the game worked better though the driver itself could have fixes unrelated to the removal of the boost profile.

    Could also differ in how the game acts under DirectX 11 and DirectX 12 if D3D12 is more demanding on the GPU and requires more to be stable especially for any Wattman tuning although 20.2.2 should also have greatly improved how the clocks fluctuate and voltage drops and related so that could also be a big part of the overall improved stability for these drivers. :)

    EDIT: Boost itself just operates under a whitelist again just from what little I can see in the profile file.

    And the properties are fairly simple too.

    <area Name="BOOST" Privacy="Defined">
    <property Type="String">Bst_MaxScale</property>
    <property Type="String">Bst_PFEnable</property>
    <property Type="String">Bst_WListed</property>
    </area>

    Scaling max, not entirely sure on PF and then the whitelisting.

    But yeah BF5 had a profile but it got removed and I don't think there's any specifics on why so I can only assume it's related to stability or some issues with the game when boost was enabled.
