Overclocking ryzen 5000 mobile iGPU

hello,

the laptop im currently using has an AMD ryzen 3 5400U.  this cpu has a vega 6 iGPU @1600mHz max.

im trying to play some games on it and i could really use a couple more FPS.  i read on the internet a post saying that AMD locked the overclocking abilities of the iGPU since ryzen 3000 mobile.

i downloaded afterburner, just to see what it would give, but if you drag the core clock slider to anything other then 1600 and press apply, it jumps back to 1600.

(if i run P95 and MSI Kombustor at the same time and let it run for 10 minutes, my cpu is at about 75 degrees so i have some thermal headroom.)

 

Is there any way to make this iGPU faster or is it just hard-locked?

Hard locked unless your laptop can have its power limited adjusted. Which is an innbios thing or a modification for your device. Since you didnt specify your laptop I cant help further there.

On top of what jaslion said... overclocking an integrated GPU probably won't help much in practice, even if heat isn't an issue.

thats what i tought

if you see a HP product, there's a 100% chance that it is locked down to the limit.

 

btw i overclocked the display to 90Hz instead of 60Hz, it only gave some artifact lines in the top right corner.
