AMD StoreMI Technology
Software that combines the speed of your SSD with the capacity of your hard disk into a single, fast, easy-to-manage drive.
AMD SenseMI Technology
With AMD SenseMI technology, Ryzen™ processors use true machine intelligence to accelerate performance.‡
AMD Ryzen™ Master Utility
The Simple and Powerful Overclocking Utility for AMD Ryzen™ process
A powerful tool for PC enthusiasts that want to improve load times, boot times, file management, and system responsiveness.
Spend Less Time Waiting4
High-capacity hard drives are great for storing large libraries, but they’re much slower than an SSD. AMD StoreMI technology can get those files running at up to SSD-like speeds. Simply add an SSD to your system, and let StoreMI do the rest.
Accelerate Your Operating System
Feeling the pain of slow startup times or an unresponsive PC? AMD StoreMI technology can help. Just add an SSD, and StoreMI can automatically help your PC feel smooth and snappy.
Cost-Effective, Non-Proprietary Hardware
You don’t need to invest in expensive and proprietary hardware to get quicker storage performance. AMD StoreMI uses widespread and affordable technologies, like SSDs and NVMe, to accelerate the storage you already have.
Plug & Play for Easy Setup Today
You don’t need to reinstall Windows® to enjoy the benefits of AMD StoreMI technology. Just add faster storage devices to your system, and StoreMI will automatically get your most-used data to the fastest drive for peak performance.
Easily Manage Large Libraries
PC enthusiasts often have many large hard drives for their library of files, but managing the library across multiple drives can be a nuisance. AMD StoreMI technology can make it a whole lot easier by managing those drives as a single large pool.
If you have an AMD X399, 400-series, 500-series, or TRX40 chipset, you can download AMD StoreMI software for free
AMD SenseMI Technology. Technology that thinks.
AMD's SenseMI technology is a set of learning and adapting features that help the AMD Ryzen™ processor customize its performance to you and your applications, thanks to true machine intelligence (MI). Finally: performance that thinks.‡
Extended Frequency Range 2 (XFR 2)
Many enthusiasts choose premium cooling in their PCs, and 2nd Generation AMD Ryzen™ desktop processors can automatically reward that choice with XFR 2. For example: All 2nd Generation AMD Ryzen™ processors can take advantage of the lower temperatures offered by premium cooling to enable higher multicore performance.
Extended Frequency Range (XFR)
Automatic extra performance boost for enthusiasts' systems with premium processor cooling.
Mobile Extended Frequency Range (mXFR)
- Permits CPU speeds above and beyond ordinary Precision Boost limits
- Clock speed scales with cooling performance
- Fully automated; no user input required
Enabling greater processor performance with a premium notebook chassis.3
- Higher processor clock speeds offer more performance to the user.
- A premium notebook cooling solution can comfortably and quietly handle these higher energy requirements.3 mXFR allows AMD Ryzen™ mobile processors to offer faster performance in laptop systems.3
Fine-tuned processor performance adjusted in real time to meet the performance demands of your game or app.
Precision Boost 2
- Adjusts clock speeds in 25MHz increments to optimize performance
- Clock speed changes can occur without pausing work
Gracefully raises processor frequencies for snappier performance on any number of CPU cores.
Neural Net Prediction
- The AMD Ryzen™ processor monitors its own energy consumption and temperature.
- When the processor knows it's running cool and quiet, it can raise clock speeds in precise 25MHz steps for any application
A true artificial intelligence inside every AMD Ryzen™ processor employs an artificial neural network to understand your applications and anticipate the next steps of your workflow in real time. These “powers of prediction” can boost performance by steering your apps and games down the most efficient paths inside the processor.
A sophisticated grid of smart sensors that monitors CPU temperature, resource usage and power draw brings cool and quiet operation to your AMD Ryzen™ processor with intelligent power optimization circuits, plus the low power requirements of an advanced 14nm FinFET manufacturing technology.
Sophisticated learning algorithms understand the inner workings of your applications and anticipate what data they might need. Smart Prefetch predictively brings that data into the AMD Ryzen™ processor for fast and responsive computing.
AMD Ryzen Master
Every AMD Ryzen processor is multiplier-unlocked from the factory, so you can personalize performance to your taste. AMD provides the AMD Ryzen Master utility to access this powerful advantage.1,2
Ryzen Master also now includes Dynamic Local Mode
, an exciting new feature specifically for AMD Ryzen™ Threadripper™ WX Series processors that can automatically improve performance in select applications.
