Does P3D use AVX instructions in the CPU?

Recommended Posts

Heard that you can get another 200MHz out of your overclock in some situations using AVX negative offset in bios. Does anyone know if P3D uses AVX? If not, this might work?


Thanks in advance


AVX Instruction Core Ratio Negative Offset: This setting reduces CPU core frequencies by the applied value when an AVX workload is run. The thermal output of AVX workloads is an order of magnitude higher than for non-AVX workloads, which is why this setting has been introduced. In theory, we can utilize a higher operating frequency for light-load applications while heavy-load applications that contain AVX code will downclock the processor to help keep core temperatures below the throttling point. However, this setting requires the CPU core voltage to be left in Auto or Offset modes that have implications for overclocking.

Seems that they use it when loading P3D, not sure in flight have not seen any down clock yet.
