  1. Testing by AMD performance labs as of 9/2/2020 based on the average FPS of 40 PC games at 1920×1080 with the High image quality preset using an AMD Ryzen™ 9 5900X processor vs Core i9-10900K. Results may vary. R5K-002
  2. Max boost for AMD Ryzen™ and Athlon™ processors is the maximum frequency achievable by a single core on the processor running a bursty single-threaded workload. Max boost will vary based on several factors, including, but not limited to: thermal paste; system cooling; motherboard design and BIOS; the latest AMD chipset driver; and the latest OS updates. GD-150
  3. Testing by AMD performance labs as of 09/01/2020. IPC evaluated with a selection of 25 workloads running at a locked 4GHz frequency on 8-core “Zen 2” Ryzen™ 7 3800XT and “Zen 3” Ryzen™ 7 5800X desktop processors configured with Windows® 10, NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 Ti (451.77), Samsung 860 Pro SSD, and 2x8GB DDR4-3600. Results may vary. R5K-003
  4. Testing by AMD performance labs as of 09/01/2020 measuring gaming performance of a Ryzen 9 5900X desktop processor vs. a  Ryzen™ 9 3900XT in 11 popular titles  at 1920×1080, the High image quality preset, and the newest graphics API available for each title (e.g. DirectX® 12 or Vulkan™ or DirectX® 11). Results may vary. R5K-009
  5. Precision Boost Overdrive requires a compatible AMD Ryzen™ Threadripper™ processor, a 3rd Gen AMD  processor or an AMD Ryzen™ 5000 Series processor and a motherboard compatible with one or more of these processors. AMD 2nd Gen Ryzen processors including the Ryzen™ 3200G processor are not compatible with Precision Boost Overdrive. Because Precision Boost Overdrive enables operation of the processor outside of specifications and in excess of factory settings, use of the feature invalidates the AMD product warranty and may also void warranties offered by the system manufacturer or retailer. GD-135.
  6. Overclocking memory will void any applicable AMD product warranty, even if such overclocking is enabled via AMD hardware and/or software.  This may also void warranties offered by the system manufacturer or retailer or motherboard vendor.  Users assume all risks and liabilities that may arise out of overclocking memory, including, without limitation, failure of or damage to RAM/hardware, reduced system performance and/or data loss, corruption or vulnerability.  GD-112
