Example Usage (Linux):

Example Usage (Windows):

C:\Users\You\Desktop\WinAMDTweak.exe --i 1,2,4 --rfc 100 --RC 100

(These are just examples! Don't try these at home! :p)

Make sure to run the program first with parameter --current to see what the current values are. Current values may change based on state of the GPU, in other words, make sure the GPU is under load when running --current. HBM2 Based GPU's do not need to be under load to apply timing changes. It is often better to apply new timings before starting a benchmark/mining tool.

Hints: Some timings are stability timings, lowering these will lower stability. Such as tRC. Some timings might require a higher value for performance to improve. Such as tREF. Some timings have a min/max value, going outside this range will result into it defaulting back to original value. Such as tCL Some timings are dynamic, they change based on the vbios values and active clocks. Dram timings. ...

Row Access Timings tRC, tRAS, tRCDRD, tRCDWR, tRRDL, tRRDS, tFAW, tRTP Column Access Timings tCCDL, tCCDS, tCCDR, tWTRL, tWTRS, tRTW, Refresh Timings tRFC, tRFCSB, tRREFD, tREFI

Some extra info

Still not all possible timings have been exposed. However, it's not such a big deal to add more of them in the tool. The ones available are more or like the most important ones.

Some users have reported very nice results already, please continue to contribute to these results. Example

Have fun!

Cheers

In the unlikely event of not owning either BTC or ETH and you do want to be an amazing person and tip, shapeshift, changelly, simpleswap, ... are great ways to solve that "issue" ;-)
