Performance System Memory: DDR4 2133 vs 3200 MHz

On this page I wanted to show you a couple of benchmarks indicating what happens when you use memory at its default 2133 MHz, if you purchase an expensive say 3200 MHz XMP kit and use that.


XMP 2.0 memory is very easy, in the BIOS you activate the XMP profile and boom, your processor will remain at its defaults yet the memory runs much faster. History has shown that faster clocked memory doesn't help much in overall performance like CPU intensive applications and gaming. However, with applications that do a lot in memory, that's where it might make a big difference. These would be video transcoding applications etc. Have a look at a few examples we made:
