Different scores PBO vs all core OC

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hi all I'm just wondering if the community could help me understand something, if I basically set my 3700x to default with pbo enabled it hits average 4.15hz to 4.2hz in cinebench r20 I'll get multi core scores about 3900's but if I manually set all core 4.15hz with 1.2v  I get 5000 give or take a couple points,is this normal behavior?

Yup because PBO doesn't lock the voltages nor clocks like manual OC does, it just changes the power tables and voltage tables so that it turbos way higher.

@BlueScope819 so I can see your post

in some applications all core ocs tend to be better than pbo sometimes but i'd be skeptical at 20% better

topics i need help on:




my "oops i bought intel right before zen 3 releases" build

CPU: Ryzen 5 3600 (placeholder)

GPU: Gigabyte 980ti Xtreme (also placeholder), deshroud w/ generic 1200rpm 120mm fans x2, stock bios 130% power, no voltage offset: +70 core +400 mem 

Memory: 2x16gb GSkill Trident Z RGB 3600C16, 14-15-30-288@1.45v

Motherboard: Asus ROG Strix X570-E Gaming

Cooler: Noctua NH-D15S w/ white chromax bling

Backup Storage: Seagate Barracuda Compute 4TB

PSU: Seasonic Prime Ultra Titanium 750W w/ black/white Cablemod extensions
Case: Fractal Design Meshify C Dark (to be replaced with a good case shortly)

basically everything was bought used off of reddit or here, only new component was the case. absolutely nutty deals for some of these parts, ill have to tally it all up once it's "done" :D

Cinebench is specifically a multi-core bench (except when you run the single-core option, of course), so it's going to obviously benefit from an all-core OC. Precision Boost, and especially PBO (which just adds extra headroom for PB), is about short boosts for mostly single-core workloads, so you're going to tap it out pretty quick with a bench like Cinebench which can take a few minutes to run.


However, they call them synthetic benchmarks for a reason. There's no that much that really pushes all cores, and all cores for sustained periods, at that, whereas there's a thousand little tasks that fire off and finish quick, and boost will be must better at that. It all depends on the specific workload for your rig, but most of the time, you're better off just leaving the CPU to do its thing, than doing an all-core OC, at least for AMD.

3900 seems way too low for a 3700X, it should be around 4800~4900 at stock, ~100 points higher with PBO and a bit higher with a high all core OC. It seems to be throttling or locked at a lower clock than normal for it to be scoring so low.
