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.

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.
