Haha, and I'll be like the Reddit users and say, subjectively, my computer feels snappier now. Supposedly it does reduce core-to-core latencies though and potentially sustaining boost for longer periods. (German) article did some tests too: https://www.computerbase.de/2020-09/amd-agesa-combo-am4-v2-1-0-8-1-test-latenz-bandbreite/But if there is a performance improvement, well, damn. Sigh. Thanks for costing me 4 hours JD.
