The app consist of 2 executables - a GUI ZenStates.exe and a service ZenStatesSrv.exe.
If you're coming from an older version, run provided uninstall.bat first. Next run of the GUI will automatically install the service.
The two main modes are Auto and Manual. The app will try to detect if manual overclock is active from bios.
Manual mode is easily engaged when the multiplier is et to anything different than auto.
Overclock mode should lift all limits, except over-temperature protection.
Due to differences between Zen/Zen+ and Zen2, the application will automatically turn on applicable controls.
For example, P-states don't work as expected on Zen2. Read and write operations complete successfully, but they seem to be ignored.
Differences might be expected due to different AGESA and SMU versions as well.
The lack of public documentation makes things even harder. Unfortunately, it doesn't seem AMD is keen on releasing it for 17h family,
so most of the work is done via reverse-engineering.
Provides several profiles for different benchmarks. The boost for Zen2 is not that big, but still there.
First generation of Zen has the biggest score boost.
PBO presets to control power limits. Unfortunately I haven't found a way to control PPT, TDC and EDC on Matisse yet.
Should work on older generations.
