5 Minute Overclock: AMD Radeon 760M to 3150 MHz

radeon 760m 5 minute overclock

We’re overclocking the AMD Radeon 760M integrated into the Ryzen 5 8600G APU to 3150 MHz with the GIGABYTE B650E Aorus Elite AX Ice motherboard and custom loop water cooling.

I’ll speedrun you through the BIOS settings and provide some notes and tips along the way. Please note that this is for entertainment purposes only and not the whole picture. Please don’t outright copy these settings and apply them to your system. If you want to learn how to overclock this system, please check out the longer SkatterBencher article.

All right, let’s do this.

5 Minute Speedrun

In Easy Mode,

Set XMP/EXPO Profile to EXPO 1. That makes the memory run at our EXPO-rated frequency of DDR5-6400 and associated memory timings.

Enable XMP/EXPO High Bandwidth Support. This GIGABYTE technology optimizes the memory timings to achieve better memory performance.

Switch to Advanced Mode and go to the Settings menu.

Enter the AMD Overclocking submenu. This will provide us with all the advanced AMD CPU overclocking tools.

Click Accept.

Enter the Manual iGPU Overclocking submenu. Now we can set our manual target clock frequency for the integrated graphics. We must also specify a target voltage for this frequency. We can set the frequency 350 MHz higher than the default 2.8 GHz. Note that the maximum graphics voltage is restricted to 1.25V in ambient conditions.

  • Set GFX Clock Frequency to 3150
  • Set GFX Voltage to 1200

Leave the Manual iGPU Overclocking submenu

Enter the DDR and Infinity Fabric Frequency/Timings submenu. Here we can adjust the system memory configuration as well as tune the infinity fabric and memory controller. Since we are using the EXPO settings for this guide, we’ll only finetune the infinity fabric and memory controller frequency.

Enter the Infinity Fabric Frequency and Dividers submenu.

Set Infinity Fabric Frequency and Dividers to 2467 MHz. This increases the clock frequency of the data fabric connecting the CPU cores, memory controller, and integrated graphics.

Set UCLK DIV1 MODE to UCLK=MEMCLK. This forces the memory controller to run at the same frequency as the system memory. Our memory frequency will be DDR5-6400 which is 3200 MHz. So, the memory controller will run at 3.2 GHz.

Leave the Infinity Fabric Frequency and Dividers submenu

Leave the DDR and Infinity Fabric Frequency/Timings submenu.

Enter the Precision Boost Overdrive submenu. Here, we can use the AMD Precision Boost Overdrive 2 toolkit to increase the power, current, and frequency headroom of the Precision Boost 2 boost algorithm.

Set Precision Boost Overdrive to Advanced

Set PBO Limits to Motherboard. This adjusts the PBO platform parameters PPT, TDC, and EDC according to the motherboard auto-rules. On this motherboard, we find that the following values have changed:

ParameterPBO DisabledPBO Enabled
CPU PPT Limit87.81000
CPU TDC Limit75180
CPU EDC Limit150250
CPU THM Limit9595
CPU FIT Limit3127.1 (1X)3127.1 (1X)

Leave the Precision Boost Overdrive submenu

Enter the SoC/Uncore OC Mode submenu. Here we can enable OC Mode for the SoC/Uncore IP blocks which forces the infinity fabric, unified memory controller, and system memory to always run at their highest frequency.

Set SoC/Uncore OC Mode to Enabled

Leave the SoC/Uncore OC Mode submenu

Enter the SoC Voltage submenu. Here we can increase the SoC Voltage to a maximum of 1.3V on ambient cooling. We need to increase the SoC voltage to have the memory controller frequency run in sync with the system memory frequency.

Set SoC Voltage to 1300.

Then save and exit the BIOS.

Radeon 760M Overclock Performance Improvement

We re-run some benchmarks to ensure everything works as intended and check the performance increase compared to the default settings. Higher is better, and all are higher. We see a maximum performance increase of +35.29% in Returnal.
