Performance - DDR4 System Memory
Performance System Memory: Memory Read Test
For our memory tests, we are using 4 x 8GB G-Skill 3200 14-14-14-34 Memory model number F4-3200C14D-16GTZR, these are XMP ready. Thus in the BIOS, we enabled XMP (or the abbreviation in the mobo BIOS) and everything was configured for us at 3200 MHz / CL14 / 1.35V. You simply select and save the mode, and you'll boot into Windows configured at these settings and now in quad-channel mode as well. Considering we are giving the AMD Ryzen Threadripper platform the advantage of 3200 MHz memories, we do the same for Intel these days. We moved all processor testing to 3200 MHz DDR4, both for AMD and Intel, for fair play.
Remember, you can configure your memory in distributed mode (great for threading), or local mode (better for gaming, offering low latency). On this page, as such, we'll include both result sets. For the game benchmarks the default tests run in distributed mode and the game mode will enable local memory mode.
