Benchmarks – Memory bandwidth & Geekbench
Write bandwidth figures for some reason are low with thew Ryzen 5 3600. Assuming there is nothing amiss with AIDA 64’s memory bandwidth test, it seems near impossible to bring the write numbers up to where copy and read figures are. This may require further investigation. That said, the default 3200MT/s as per Ryzen 5 3600 spec gives plenty of bandwidth and of course even more at DDR 3,600. Even higher figures should be possible, with further tuning.
Despite the four thread advantage the new platform manages to outpace the older Ryzen 7 2700 CPU. This advantage is of course due to the IPC improvements on the the 3rd generation Ryzen, but also speaks to the vastly improved memory controller as well. This is where the best motherboards will excel (such as this one), allowing one to extract even more performance from the memory sub-system.
