No. Just a standard build.Did you order overclocked?
HWMonitor is just showing all core values of 4304MHz, min of 4154mhz and max of 4304mhz.Could you try running it again with HW Monitor running too? Sometimes 3Dmark doesn't record the increased frequency for some reason. You can confirm with HWMonitor though. The output graphs at the end should also show the increased frequency. If it's not showing its locked for some reason.

Does this mean it has been 'locked' somehow?
If so, how do I reset or unlock this, so that it drops to it's base clock and ramps to it's boost clock as appropriate?
It's possible some auto boost has been set in the BIOS, that would apply an all core boost which would vastly lower the clocks.
I got it just before Christmas 2020...so fairly new.Yes, definitely. During the run, even during loading, you should see a max boost on at least one of the cores.... usually all of them, even if it doesn't happen during the run.
There are various settings in the BIOS that change the way the boost of AMD operates.
How old is the system? I believe there was a BIOS update to take care of some boosting issues. I'm not sure of the naming convention in the BIOS and, unfortunately, I don't have time right now to look into it.
Hopefully anyone picking this up will know what I'm on about to advise better. Will pop in when I can to see if it's sorted
That more normal boost behaviour.Right, I've just bitten the bullet and reset the BIOS settings to 'optimised'.
Initially it looks like the cores are boosting between 3200MHz and 5000MHz - so will run TimeSpy again now...
....scores look almost identical, but the CPU Frequency in TimeSpy reports highs of 4850MHz with a couple of dips as low as 3800MHz
Now the Zotec has now been replaced by a GigaByte 3070 (3rd time lucky )So. PCS kindly replaced the Palit 3070 GPU as I've had nothing but problems with it. For a Zotec 3070 (which is about half the size I may add, though I miss the RGB. But the GPU works.....anyhow)
Back to the benchmarks
16GB of RAM 3200
970 Evo Pro 1tb
850 RMX power supply
NZXT H511 case
Replaced the x2 case fans with Notuca fans
Best results with the Palit
Best result with the Zotec
Thus. Basically the same. Just thought I'd share!
