AMD Adrenalin computer software reportedly alters consumer-established BIOS CPU options

Experiences are surfacing suggesting that AMD’s Adrenalin application for Radeon graphics cards is inadvertently altering the Precision Boost Overdrive options of units outfitted with Ryzen CPUs. The actuality that it’s carrying out it without having user consent is the issue. When applying GPU profiles, the automated enabling PBO can lead to difficulties for customers with otherwise secure overclocks.

Information of the problem comes through Igor’s Lab following an investigation. It states that the integration of AMD’s Ryzen Grasp CPU program and Adrenalin Radeon software package is by default making it possible for the software to change CPU overclocking parameters with no user consent.
