Well, you're already overclocking the memory controller and the rest of the "uncore" by running your RAM faster than 2933 so maybe a little more SoC voltage would help. The Radeon driver is known to be buggy (acknowledged in the release notes) so keep a look out for an update - hopefully from Crimson Re-Live to Adrenalin. I'm sure there will be a new BIOS along soon too. Agreed on the erroneous iGPU voltage reading, btw.

Thanks, all, for the tip on the Beta BIOS 4.43.

It made a huge difference.

Under the official 4.40 BIOS, none of my vanilla drives were recognized, and performance for the Ryzen 5 2400G was abysmal. After updating the BIOS to 4.43, I saw a dramatic improvement.

Plus, it now recognizes all of my hard drives: SSD + Seagate 500GB drive.

I'll post the actual results in a bit.

Here are the results from Performance Test 9.0:

Ryzen 5 2400G, 8GB RAM DDR4 2666, 120GB SSD Windows 10.1 64-bit

BIOS 4.40

BIOS 4.43 BETA


The biggest change, as you can see, is in the 2D and 3D graphics score. While still far below a dedicated graphics card, the performance is improved measurably.

In real world use, my daughter can now game on this machine - with some of the graphics effects turned down.

I am able to boost iGPU up to about 1,600 stable. I have been trying to push it to 1,700.
I am Ryzen Master for the iGPU and the BIOS for the CPU and RAM.
How are you OC'ing your iGPU in your BIOS? I cannot find the setting.

How are you able to use Ryzen Master and Bios OC at the same time?  I kept getting errors.

1600 stable is really good -- after some real world testing in games, I had to reduce my iGPU to 1525mhz.  I'm not sure what I am doing wrong or how I can improve this at the moment, but it might have to do with the voltage being too low for the gpu.  What RAM do you have?  I have a set of 16gb patriot 3400mhz that seems to be running stable at around 3333.  I've tried OCing it, but even just a little bit above will cause my computer to crash after a while of heavy use.

Any other tips for getting up to 1600+?  I'm not sure how beneficial it is to get that high, but if it is, I'd love to get more out of this chip.

You can OC the GPU in Advanced>AMD CBS>XMP 2.0>ADVANCED

Beware, the voltage settings are in hex or some other code and not simply volt/millivolt parameters.

Bad experience at the moment. I purchased this board for a friend of mine who has only got a WiFi connection and the wifi bsod is totally invalidating for him. I have 30 days to return the board and get a new one from another manufacturer, if this issue won't be fixed.

But I really do hope that they'll fix it soon because everybody pointed me to ASRock am4 mobo as they seem to be the best.

How much power is the iGPU using at 1600 MHz? Use something like HWiNFO64 - the sensors mostly work, though version 5.72-3333 doesn't distinguish between the SoC and the GPU so they get lumped together. And how are you getting rid of the heat?

I'm trying to OC my GPU as well, but I don't see "XMP 2.0" under "AMD CBS".  Are you using the latest bios on the AB350 Gaming ITX/AC motherboard?

If you put your system details in your sig then everyone would know which version you're using.
