https://www.reddit.com/r/Amd/comments/krkyva/hardware_unboxed_amds_killer_feature_sam_36_game/ Hardware unboxed testing and also this user quote. Found it interesting and thus the performance decreases could be from early testing and bios bugs. And of interest is that it's overall nothing too complicated so unless AMD intentionally did something more with SAM it should just work however it's currently (maybe?) only supported for the 6000 series GPU's though motherboard and CPU wise it's now looking better. Just need that 18.104.22.168 AGESA and those fixes over 22.214.171.124 or 126.96.36.199 for overall system improvements and stability. (Slowly rolling out though.) EDIT: Should also mean this can carry right over with the same benefits on Intel CPU's and NVIDIA GPU's hopefully without any complications in the process. Should be fine though, seems like it just affected performance anyway and less of a stability issue. EDIT: Interesting as well on how this works and benefits and possible cases where it won't do much like the last part of that quote.
