Theres a handful of utilities out there … like this one:

Again, the approximate release date - September 2020, keep an eye out here on Guru3D for more information.

I guess it will be a windows only thing. Hopefully they’ll publish the code. (Notgonnahappeniguess)

Can we get this new Ryzen optimization tool on Linux/Manjaro as well?

Ask Guru3D to make it open source and to make it available on Linux. From what I see so far in the article you linked, it looks like a Windows program.

Currently, for AMD stuff, I use:

With yay , run:

yay -Sy corectrl


No - that’s not true :wink:
Your wish was my command - it’s now available from Manjaro.
If you are at unstable, just use this:

pamac install corectrl

OH! You’re going to maintain this package on Manjaro for us?! That’d be amazing!

I also have an AMD CPU and I’m always close to myself :grin:


The more important thing was that is not how to install packages … its how you get partial upgrades.

That is until you decided to maintain it in our repos. Cuz thats cool news. Cheers.


As it is based on Ryzen Master it is not a Linux tool.

Got some warning errors package-build related and Qt related:

When executing corectrl:

Actually, looking at the developers previous projects, those seem to be written in C# which can be de-compiled. So there is some chance that it can be easily reverse engineered and ported to Linux.

Why reengineering, when the author is here on the forum :wink:

What, who?

@jiweigert is referrring to the package @schinfo put in the official repo corectrl

While @moson is referring to the Clock Tuner app in OP.


Indeed, I meant that tool in the first post from this guy:

You can follow those instructions if you want to suppress those warnings.

build() {
  cmake -B build -S "$pkgname-v$pkgver" \
  make -C build

package() {
  make -C build DESTDIR="$pkgdir" install

It looks like you built the AUR package instead of installing the package @schinfo added to the repos. It’s only in the unstable branch so far as he mentioned. :wink:

Right, I build the AUR package as i’m on stable branch.
But anyway, I am on the dev-side of those, who are welcoming warnings, instead of suppressing them. :wink:

Warnings ( even depreciated ones,) should be respected and fixed, not suppressed.

All good.

Kind regards,

I already use cpu-autofreq, would I get any benefit from using this new software as well? (I have a 2700x CPU)

Not really, CoreCTRL doesn’t really have anything for CPU, for me on my Ryzen 5 3600 it only has a governor setting, pretty useless in my opinion. for AMD video cards though you could have many tweak available, especially for supported card where you may be able to even play with voltage and things like that.
