I'm not even getting started yet..... 4.4 is just a temporary low power overclock because I'm using a U12A. The Optimus AM4 block is on the way ;)

Based on the voltages I'm able to run 4.6 ghz for short term testing I wouldn't be surprised if 4.7-4.8 all core will be doable on water. I'm 100% thermally bound at the moment.

Here's my results on Linux (Ubuntu 20.10). I used turbostat to get CPU utilization and frequency since HWinfo is Windows only.

encoded 1806 frames in 379.67s (4.77 fps), 10567.33 kb/s, Avg QP:28.58

AMD 2700 (8c/16t) @ 4.25 GHz
Handbrake 1.3.3
DDR4@ 3200 MHz, tuned RAM timings.
3970 MHz average frequency
90.6% average utilization

Edit: Also, @Hulk , you should probably edit the first post in the thread as new people may read the first post and then add their results without getting the updated info.

Edit2: Sorry, just noticed the OP is @ElFenix. Maybe we should just start a new thread?

I would like to start a new thread but I won't do it without the OP's permission.

While the overall score is fantastic what really amazes me is what appears to be a tremendous IPC increase for Zen 3 over everything else. We'll know more when (if) we get some more results with the new more rigorous testing format.

Of note in the Zen3 bench result is the low CPU usage. If my guess is correct, in this one test, the core is do efficient that it's outstripping the memory subsystem's ability to keep it fed with data, and even with SMT, it's still spending a good bit of time just waiting for more data.

Perhaps more of a memory overclock?

Can't overclock it really past 4000 realistically. I can run a couple times at lower memory settings to see if it hampers performance or decreases average effective clock. Probably once at 3200c14 and once at 3600c16.

I can also disable a CCD and see if with only 8C/16T it will achieve higher average effective clock.

I have a feeling it's Handbrake's inability to continue linearly scaling with more cores. 10 cores is scaling pretty well but there is obviously a drop off to 16. We'll know more when we get some 12/14 core results. From what I've seen in the past most video operations require lots of compute, not so much memory bandwidth. It's interesting. We'll see.

If that were the case, shouldn't turning off SMT help higher cores CPUs? After all if scaling is getting worse with a higher thread count, the threads getting whole cores might start to outweigh the numerical advantage of more threads sharing cores through SMT. Anybody with a 3950X or 5950X willing to test for this hypothesis?

That's a good theory. But if 16 cores are at 82% usage overall I think that's still effectively utilizing all of the cores. I think it's going to take 24 or 32 physical cores to test your theory. Seems like when CPU usage gets closer to 50% perhaps it'd so better with HT off.

It also depends on how Handbrake is allocating resources. It might be assigning a certain block of work to a core, meaning that if HT is off performance will suffer.

Here's my 3900x @ per CCX OC (4350, 4350, 4300, 4300, 1.25v) with the new rules.

Had to drop clocks down a bit from my last entry (4375, 4375, 4325, 4300) as this is now hitting 90°C and handbrake was crashing. Thanks early summer and your ~30°C ambient temperatures! My air cooler hates you

go right on ahead, OP is now a mess trying to put the new info into it.


it's kinda weird that i didn't get @Hitman928 's summon.

If you use HWinfo as indicated in my post you'll be able to get values for average effective clock and CPU usage. We need those number from HWinfo to make an apples-to-apples comparison.

This seems to support my theory. We're at 75% of the threads with similar clocks and memory throughput and we have a much higher usage percentage. It still doesn't rule out some sort of algorithm or thread sharing limitation on scaling.
