Can't set CPU Governor Ryzen 1700X
Avehicle7887 commented on 14 November 2017 at 11:24 pm UTC

I'd like to be able to set the governor on my Ryzen machine, however it says no driver is available.

Using Mint 18.1 with the recently released 4.14 Kernel / Ryzen 1700X (Downloaded from Official Ubuntu server). Everything works fine but I'm unable to set the governor. I never really bothered with it on this system and if I can squeeze a little more performance I'll gladly go for it.

Running cpufreq-info in terminal provides the following output for all cores:

analyzing CPU 0:
no or unknown cpufreq driver is active on this CPU
maximum transition latency: 4294.55 ms.

Unlike Intel's P-State driver there are no AMD-specific drivers for Ryzen so it will show up as unknown.
