AMD’s automatic overclocking feature is back and better than ever. In a new video, Senior Technical Marketing Manager Robert Hallock explains how Precision Boost Overdrive (PBO) has been improved for third-generation Ryzen processors, allowing higher single-core (up to 200 MHz) and all-core clocks.

The feature debuted with AMD’s 2nd-generation Threadripper processors and intelligently increases performance by gauging power, current, voltage, temperature, and similar factors. Hallock says that the latest update to PBO will let users exceed official boost clocks.

While the X570 platform was specifically mentioned, any board with a proper Ryzen 3000 BIOS should have the feature.
