There's a new 7404 released 27 Dec 2019, was hoping to see some discussion on it 😄
I'm using version 7704 published on 27 Dec 2019; the post runs faster, my 3900x in single core boost finally reaches and exceeds (rarely) 4.6 Ghz in single core with the energy profile of 1smus. I get lower scores in cinebenches (about 50 points) but I'm not entirely sure that the cause is the new version of the bios, I hope others can give us feedback.
Last day was running 3400/3466 fine, night time 3533 over 20k and still ongoing, that just on 1.35v. When trying 3600 1.45v 1.1v soc voltage and still won't do(below 2000%) even sometime hitting 500 %.
i got my system back stable with it's 64GB ram setup.
for some reason i updated to 7201 (what?! why?)
and i'm not sure what did the difference, what seems relevant is:
- set ram voltage to 1.33v (instead of the default 1.35v) [because it shuts them off if loading too much current?]
- set the power phase of the SOC to extreme
and a few other things that seem to be less related...
can someone tell me wheter the extreme power phase setting is a bad idea or not even a big deal?
i don't know what it does exactly...
