Performance System Memory: Memory Read Test
So, for memory we had some proper DDR4 DIMMs to work with. These allow for your usual JEDEC frequency but also XMP/BEMP profiles at 2,133 MHz, in the BIOS once you enable the profile, all of a sudden these run at 2,133 MHz / CL15. Combined with a dual-channel configuration.
Above, the memory at default 2,133 MHz (CL15), now really 30~32K is not exactly boring, but you can go faster my man. Below, the results at 3866 MHz (CL18) XMP 2.0.
So, for memory we had some proper DDR4 DIMMs to work with, Intel has a couple of certified partners for memory to get some sweet XMP 2.0 profiles going. We use a GSKILL 3866 MHz 16 GB Trident-Z kit:
