ClockTuner for Ryzen is getting a 2.0 version, updating its GUI with a new dark theme and introducing interesting new features such as the Hybrid OC mode and support for Ryzen 5000 series processors.
The slides from Yuri (aka as 1usmus) shared by Guru3D describe each new feature and come with a roadmap for the upcoming version of CTR, with the respective release dates. The CTR 2.0 is coming out at the end of January of 2021, but early access has already started.
Starting with the Hybrid OC mode, this new feature combines “two custom profiles and auto boost” to provide with a simpler process to optimise your processor. The two custom profiles are P1, designed to maximise the all-core clock, and P2 (game profile), to deliver the highest possible performance out of each CCX by reaching higher clocks on multiple cores instead of just a single core. Using a Ryzen 5 5600X, Cinebench R20 results increased by 8% when using 12 threads and 10% on 6 threads. The single-core result was unchanged.
A new monitoring technology has also been introduced in CTR 2.0, allowing users to use CTR without Ryzen Master. The new monitoring tool requests data with a millisecond interval when the CPU is idle and 7ms when all cores are loaded. Additionally, it adds information about the processor telemetry, temperatures, and the VID of each core (Zen3 only).
Other features included with CTR 2.0 are the diagnostic mode, advanced logging, improved profile management, performance improvements in the software, and the Phoenix feature, which allows CTR to automatically recover after a BSOD or reboot, allowing the software to resume the diagnostic or profile creation.
There are more features coming in version 2.1, including an automatic curve optimizer for Ryzen 5000 processors (manual mode already included), measurement mode, more optimisations for Ryzen 5000 CPUs, and Hybrid OC 2.0. The 2.1 version is expected to come at the end of the first quarter of 2021. CTR 2.2 will come in the third quarter of 2021, bringing support for Threadripper Genesis (5000 series) and Ryzen Cezanne APUs.
KitGuru says: Do you own a Ryzen 5000 series processor? Have you already tried CTR? If you haven’t, will you try CTR 2.0?
