In this tutorial, we're going to explain what ICM files and color profiles are, why they matter, and how to install a color profile in Windows 10.

Modern processors come with two stock frequencies, or clocks if you prefer, which tell us their base speed and their boost speed. To be able to adjust their speed on-the-fly, processors need algorithms that tell them when to do that. For AMD's Ryzen processors, those algorithms are called Precision Boost. It is a feature that's built into them and which, theoretically, has a significant effect on their performance.
One of the features that increases the performance of AMD Ryzen processors is Precision Boost, which raises the frequency of the processor's cores when the workload increases, while keeping both the energy consumption and the temperature in check. If you look into the BIOS of your motherboard, you can also see other terms like PBO (Precision Boost Overdrive) and AutoOC (Auto OverClocking). You may be confused by what they mean, what they do, and whether they can truly enhance the performance you get.
