AMD promises BIOS update to enhance Ryzen 3000 Boost speeds

Yesterday we wrote about a video report from German overclocker der8auer, who had collected evidence that a lot of AMD Ryzen 3000 processors are unable to hit the Boost clockspeeds that are advertised by AMD. In case of the high-end Ryzen 9 3900X, which is the biggest offender, a mere 5.6 percent of respondents were able to hit the advertised Boost clockspeed of 4.6GHz.

AMD just released an official statement regarding this matter. The company says the maximum Boost speed depends on the workload and your system's cooling, but apparently they also found "an issue" that can reduce boost frequency in some scenarios. A future BIOS update will address this matter and AMD will provide more information on September 10:
AMD is pleased with the strong momentum of 3rd Gen AMD Ryzen™ processors in the PC enthusiast and gaming communities. We closely monitor community feedback on our products and understand that some 3rd Gen AMD Ryzen users are reporting boost clock speeds below the expected processor boost frequency. While processor boost frequency is dependent on many variables including workload, system design, and cooling solution, we have closely reviewed the feedback from our customers and have identified an issue in our firmware that reduces boost frequency in some situations. We are in the process of preparing a BIOS update for our motherboard partners that addresses that issue and includes additional boost performance optimizations. We will provide an update on September 10 to the community regarding the availability of the BIOS.
