AMD recommends uProf tool instead of HWInfo or AIDA64 - News
According to AMD, third-party analytical tools may not be giving correct information on Raven Ridge SoCs like the Ryzen 5 2500U or Ryzen 7 2700U. It's unknown if popular tools like HWInfo or AIDA64 would ever be updated to fully support Raven Ridge SoCs. For now, AMD μProf is the only reliable method.

Gaming: Memory OC Showdown: Frequency vs. Memor... | Community
The release of AGESA to mobo makers has resulted in a wave of fresh BIOS updates, each one packed with tons of new options for tweaking and overclocking memory.1 With so many options at your disposal, some have understandably asked: “what are the optimal settings for games?” Never one to leave an overclocking question unanswered, our illustrious overclocker Sami Makinen took his ASUS Crosshair VI and AMD Ryzen™ 1700 CPU for a spin to find the fastest combination of settings in a few different tests.2

Before we dig into the data, here’s what we analyzed:

* The impact of the new BankGroupSwap (BGS) BIOS option
* Single-rank DIMMs vs. dual-rank DIMMs
* Automatic sub-timings vs. manually-tweaked subtimings
* Max frequency vs. lower frequency at tighter timings
* Geardown Mode (GDM) on vs. off

Thinkpad A485 2700U Cloud Gate : thinkpad
AMD says HWInfo is inaccurate which is why most people are saying their CPU is configured for 12-15W TDP. Try using uprof.

Benchmark | Corona Renderer
The benchmark runs using Corona Renderer 1.3, which is an older version of Corona Renderer – updating the benchmark to a newer version of Corona Renderer would have no impact on the relative performance of 2 different CPUs and would only invalidate all the results gathered so far, so staying with the older version is actually useful from the point of view of a benchmark application. For using Corona Renderer as a render engine, naturally the newer (and faster) versions are better!

Installation and Use
It’s easy to use: save, extract, and run the file. Benchmark starts to render the testing scene automatically and shows the result at the end, with an option to submit the result to this page. You can also copy it to the benchmark forum thread.

Raven Ridge mobile 2700u large performance increase with q2 Adrenaline drivers : Amd
I know the drivers say they're not for mobile, but they definitely work. I have the Dell Inspiron 7375 2n1 with Ryzen 7 2700u, 16gb 2400mhz ram. Performance is vastly increased with the latest driver, by as much as 40% in minimums and around 20% average. Has to be manually installed - I selected Radeon RX Vega from the list and it gave a warning before installing but worked perfectly. Version reported is 24.20.110028. Been playing with it for the last hour or two and no crashes or issues yet.

Unfortunately, it doesn't do anything for the throttling issue this pc has where gpu clocks throttle down after around 2.5 minutes (regardless of temp), will have to wait for bios to fix that. However, frames jumped so even when it throttles framerates stay in the upper 40's to 50 to where before they'd be mid 30's. In one particular spot that was hard on frame rates it jumped from 36fps to 50fps, so roughly 40%! Quite impressed, now just need some bios revisions to fix the throttling!

Hopefully this means we can expect mobile drivers in all of the releases from now on. Even if it's a manual install, I have no problem with that. Hopefully we can get some other results and see if it's as big an improvement on the 2500u's as well.
