And AMDs tradition of of having fans have to come up with software that the company should provide continues.

Not really. CTR sounds great, in theory. But no one knows if a processor runs stable for years using such a utility. Undervolting can lead to instabilities under certain circumstances. A generation is validated for many months before launch to find the sweet spot between performance, power consumption and stability. That's all what AMD has to do. And they do that. There's no need to ask for more. Such functionality as CTR actually has to be implemented on silicon level, not software level. And Zen 3 will be another step to improve it.

Intel's tool cannot be compared to CTR because IPM is just an overclocking tool. Nothing you can't do with AMD's PBO. Nice try. But maybe you should read more carefully next time.
The tool competes with AMD's Precision Boost Overdrive that will come standard with all Ryzen 3000-series processors.

Maybe you shouldn't just blindly believe articles but do a teeny weeny bit of research yourself.CTR is also just an overclocking tool and does exactly the same as IPM does, check each core individually to get the most out of it at the lowest power draw.

Precision boost is similar to turbo boost,they run cores at higher clocks but without regard to individual performance metrics and by using plenty of vcore.
PBO is basically the same with intel's PL states, you can give it a bit more watts for it to boost higher or longer or whatever.

No. You are wrong, again. IPM is a simple overclocking tool. Higher voltage, higher frequency, higher performance. That's all. CTR is different because it not only targets higher performance but also lower power consumption, which means higher efficiency.

As I said before, nice try to bash AMD and spread your alternative facts. But try harder next time. The truth is, nowadays AMD offers a lot software support for their products. The reason people develop their own tools just shows how popular AMD became. And it shows how smart the community is. Maybe Intel buyers are just not smart enough to do the same?

You mean like automatic overclocking and undervolting which is present in Adrenaline Drivers?
Or how about use of Ryzen Master allowing you fine control of Zen CPU's in the first place?

Sure, having one click overclock and undervolt software for CPU's is all well and good, but we also know that users can do these things manually to achieve even better performance/efficiency seeing how automatic control always leaves room and doesn't actually test stability with lowest possible voltages at given or higher frequencies.

Did you even watch the video you linked?

As the guy stated, and as Linus states in the video, all CTR does can be done through Ryzen master, its just more of a manual process. CTR just automates some of the testing - that's it.

Don't forget they stated it will take much longer to do as opposed to this software.
