AMD has a utility program that will help you do many things with the Ryzen and Threadripper chips - like turn off hyperthreading (the core disable feature) to give you better single core performance.

I haven't checked it out in a while but Ryzen Master was pretty finnicky and unreliable when I used it last year. I'd suggest using BIOS to tweak things instead. Combination of PBO(Precision Boost Overdrive) and XFR(Extended Frequency Range) should generally be enough for 99% of the people who's interested in overclocking their CPU.

First gen. Ryzen are best used with manual overclocking tho. Boost clocks and alghoritm are really bad in these CPUs.

On the other hand, Wattman works pretty well with Vega cards now.

      I checked just to see how the 2700X fared against the i9-9900K
      This will not dissuade Intel fans. The i9-9900K is faster, by an overall 16%. Of course Intel does single-core better.
      Cost for the 2700X - $280
      Cost for the i9-9900K - $500

      Whilst the 6 core, 12 thread 8700K beats the 2700X in single and quad core performance by about 10%, the 2700X wins on multi-core workloads. PC gaming and desktop performance is generally governed by four or less cores but the 2700X offers unbeatable value for money for workstation users.
      Although the 9900K has around a 16% effective speed advantage over the 2700X, the Ryzen 2700X offers better value for money for most users.
