AMD Adrenalin software reportedly alters user-set BIOS CPU settings

There are reports that the Adrenalin software for AMD’s Radeon graphics cards has inadvertently changed the Precision Boost Overdrive setting on systems with Ryzen CPUs. The fact that it does so without the user’s consent is the problem. Automatically enabling PBO when applying a GPU profile may cause problems for overclocked stable users.

News of the issue comes from Igor’s lab After investigation. It says the integration of AMD’s Ryzen Master CPU software and Adrenalin Radeon software by default allows programs to change CPU overclocking parameters without the user’s consent.
