Optimize Your Ryzen CPU For Performance
Overclocking aside, none of these tips provide major performance boosts individually. Add it all up, however, and you may see a significant performance increase in some games and applications, depending on your overall system setup.
Optimize your Ryzen CPU for Performance
Many of AMD's newest chips, like the Ryzen 5 3600X and Ryzen 7 3700X are great processors but don't have a ton of overclocking headroom, so there's probably little benefit to pushing them further. AMD's Precision Boost will make sure you aren't leaving any performance on the table. The non-X chips, like the AMD Ryzen 5 3600, have a bit more, but still have diminishing returns compared to some of the older Ryzen chips, like the 1000 and 2000 series. If you want to see how far you can push your processor, though, it just takes a few tweaks in your computer's BIOS. Here's how to do it.
A good CPU cooler: While AMD's included Wraith Spire cooler can handle a little overclocking, it'll likely get hot pretty fast. I recommend buying a larger heatsink, like the Cryorig R1 Ultimate CR-R1A(Opens in a new window) (pictured), or a liquid cooling loop to eke the most possible performance out of your CPU.
XMP and RAM Overclocking: Unlike some older CPUs, Ryzen's Infinity Fabric(Opens in a new window) architecture causes higher RAM speeds to give noticeable performance boosts. So once you hit a wall with your CPU speed, try kicking your RAM speeds up a notch.
If you want more performance for gaming, rendering, coding, or simply for your day-to-day tasks, a higher core clock can help. Overclocking is often a quick, easy, and cost-efficient way to unlock better performance, especially when compared to the cost of upgrading to a new CPU or even a new computer.
If your laptop has discrete graphics (dGPU), dGPU has better graphic performance than integrated GPU. We recommend to set dGPU as the preferred graphics processor for games to optimize the gaming experience.
SSD has a better read/write speed than original HDD (Hard Disk Drive), it can optimize your gaming experience as well. Here you can learn more about How to check currently installed drives information.
Note: Optimize and defragment SSD cannot improve the performance, but rather reduces its capacity. Therefore, we recommend to optimize and defragment drive for HDD only if your game is installed on it.
Keeping the drivers updated for your graphics card or chip and processor ensures that you always get the best performance from your gaming computer. Click the appropriate links below to download the latest drivers:
If you have tried all the above options and are still unsatisfied with your gaming experience, you may want to upgrade to newer, more powerful components. Upgrading provides the biggest boost in performance, but it is also the most expensive option, and potentially the most complicated.
Modern games demand a lot from your GPU, so upgrading this component will usually provide the biggest boost in gaming performance. However, upgrading your GPU is also the most expensive option, and is only an option for desktop computers. Laptop owners cannot upgrade their GPUs, although certain Alienware models may be able to use the Alienware Graphics Amplifier. See the product page in the Dell Store for more details about the Alienware Graphics Amplifier.
When it comes to CPU performance, clock speed is more important than the number of cores. Faster clock speeds mean that your CPU can process information faster. More cores mean that your computer will be better at running several applications at once, but if your clock speed is low, these programs will run slowly too.
Out-of-date graphics drivers are one of the most common causes of performance issues with video applications. For optimal performance, make sure you have the latest drivers for your GPU, including integrated Intel GPUs. For more information, see GPU and GPU Driver Requirements for Premiere Pro.
Assuming you have a good system, performance for multicam workflows is more dependent on your project setup than your hardware. Expert users create their own project templates to standardize their setup.
Your workflow, and how you decide to work with file formats, can have a significant impact on overall performance. Our best practices guide for working with native formats has suggestions for designing your workflow to ensure optimal performance with your hardware.
For the best results, take a holistic approach. Read all the suggestions here. Consider which ones to implement within the context of your computer setup. Also consider the types of files you use and your particular workflow. Each circumstance is unique and requires a different combination of techniques to achieve the most efficient performance from Lightroom Classic.
As long as disk space is not an issue, keep 1:1 previews as long as possible to optimize performance. In the File Handling area of the Catalog Settings dialog box, choose Automatically Discard 1:1 Previews > After 30 Days or Never.
Lightroom Classic is constantly writing changes to the catalog file (.lrcat). When performance slows, optimize the Lightroom Classic catalog by choosing File > Optimize Catalog. Optimizing the catalog instructs Lightroom Classic to examine the data structure of the catalog and make sure that it is succinct.
To further optimize performance and improve catalog stability, when you exit Lightroom Classic, and back up the catalog, choose the options Test Integrity Before Backing Up and Optimize The Catalog After Backing Up. These processes take a little time but can help keep the catalog operating smoothly.
If you have many corrections, check your History panel. The History panel has no limits, and it isn't deleted unless specified. If you've been creating many local or spot corrections, your history could be long, which can slow Lightroom Classic's performance as a whole.
As software and web architecture evolve, hardware makers are also innovating their offerings. AMD and Microsoft have been leaders in this movement, finding new ways to improve performance and deliver better results to consumers. One of their latest efforts is to optimize Windows 11 for multi-CCD chips to improve performance. So what does that mean for your organizational computing needs? Let's take a look.
To explore the performance envelope of third-gen Ryzen CPUs and the X570 platform, I selected an ROG Crosshair VIII Hero (Wi-Fi) motherboard from our arsenal. This board boasts some of the most robust power-delivery circuitry and connectivity options you can pair with a third-gen Ryzen CPU, including an Intel Wi-Fi 6 AX200 adapter for the best performance with next-generation wireless networking hardware. Even if your parts list includes a power-hungry, high-core-count Ryzen 9 CPU, the Crosshair VIII Hero will provide that chip with the stable, reliable platform it needs to run at peak performance.
This article provides information on basic system diagnostics relating to performance as well as steps that may be taken to reduce resource consumption or to otherwise optimize the system with the end-goal being either perceived or documented improvements to a system's performance.

If using a traditional spinning HDD, your partition layout can influence the system's performance. Sectors at the beginning of the drive (closer to the outside of the disk) are faster than those at the end. Also, a smaller partition requires less movements from the drive's head, and so speed up disk operations. Therefore, it is advised to create a small partition (15-20GiB, more or less depending on your needs) only for your system, as near to the beginning of the drive as possible. Other data (pictures, videos) should be kept on a separate partition, and this is usually achieved by separating the home directory (/home) from the system (/).
The Ryzen 7950X is using the Zen4 cores and the 5950X and Tr Pro 5995WX are using Zen3. I created docker containers with applications compiled from source that were optimized for Zen3 using AMD compilers and libraries. The currently available AMD compilers (also gcc) do not have Zen4 specific optimization paths. This is significant since the Ryzen 7000 CPUs have AVX512 vector units that have not been exploited by builds used in this testing. That means that Ryzen 7000 performance will only get better once compilers with full Zen4 support are available. I will be watching out for the new compiler releases and will re-optimize the applications and write up the results.
