As you may know, the last desktop processors of the AMD company, we refer to the new AMD Ryzen 3000, are really working at the limit of their capabilities. So, first of all, overclocking in AMD Ryzen 3000 is of little use, and secondly, the maximum frequencies declared by the manufacturer are often simply unreachable by the processor.
AMD decided to clarify this aspect by adding some clarifications on the official website of the company and in which we are explained What does the Max Boost Clock parameter mean?.
The indicator Max Boost Clock it offers us a clue about the maximum frequency of a nucleus in which the processor can work in nominal conditions.
Actually, this was already understandable, but here it is worth mentioning the graphics obtained by the TechPowerUp experts who investigated in this matter.
As you can see, in the case of Ryzen 7 3700X, the maximum frequency of one of the cores reaches 4,375 GHz at 4.4 GHz, declared in the specifications as Max Boost Clock. The remaining cores operate at slightly lower frequencies: from 4,219 to 4,371 GHz.
That is, the difference is small, but the average value is not so close to 4.4 GHz.
In the case of Intel Core i9-9900K, a processor core is closest to the Max Turbo indicator, but all others operate at frequencies of 300-500 MHz less than the maximum.
