I’d like to know if there’s a way to enable boost clock? I’ve installed
cpupower but changing the governor to
performance doesn’t enable it.
The reason for me asking is that I bought a new PC, with both CPU and GPU from AMD since they are way more Linux friendly, and playing CS:GO gives me micro-stutters which are pretty annoying. As a small addendum: I was expecting close to 300fps, but right now I’m not even close (200 and less).
Specs are Ryzen 5 3600 and RX 5700 XT; under is the output of
