What games are you playing that only use a single core? Most of the games that I have been playing have been using multiple cores, for example, BFV uses up around 8-9 cores on my 3900x.

My 3900x was hitting 4.65GHz with my original BIOS but I updated to a beta BIOS for the AGESA 1.0.0.3ABB firmware and now I have no idea what boost clocks I am getting as it broke monitoring but my single core R15 score went down by about 5-10%.

BF V can, for sure, and maybe I'm out of date, but even the multithreaded games I've played generally have one thread consuming 100%, then rest 80% or less.

Delivering what you advertise is pretty important

It's important to remember that nearly all major CPU launches in the last 5-10 years are plagued by some initial difficulties or bugs.
If AMD can resolve the boost issues then great, we can review the discussion once they've issued a fix.

They should not have claimed the frequencies if they were unattainable.
I suspect the issue is more binning than bios

These don't seem to be unattainable differences, 25-50Mhz off.

Pretty much all MMO games still use single thread.

I think the same. But if you advertise or market a given specification and don't fulfill that, its false advertising and expect heavy fines.

It doesn't matter if it is just 25 MHz or that it is not a noticeable difference. False advertisement is a serious offense. AMD just got slammed with a $12 million dollars fine for falsely advertizing core count on Bulldozer. They can easily get even bigger fine just months after for core speeds on Zen 2. They are not Intel. Intel can lose the whole value of AMD and just shake it off. AMD just started to get some profit. And they probably aren't even close to fulfilling the promises made to shareholders. This is a big problem for them. They cannot afford to lose shareholder's money on stupid marketing mistakes.
