ROG STRIX X570-E Gaming Review

Benchmarks – Memory bandwidth & Geekbench

DRAM bandwidth is as one would expect based on previous X570 motherboard reviews. For some reason using the Ryzen 5 3600X on this same board yielded slightly better results at default than when using the Ryzen 7 3800X. The difference isn’t large at all, but it is consistent. Of course when overclocked, this difference went away, so it may be due to some motherboard firmware settings. Just as with all other boards, the most optimal memory performance settings are found with a 1900MHz IF_clk and a matching 1900MHz DRAM clock (DDR4 3800MT/s).

As you may expect the eight core Ryzen 7 3800X used for testing benefits immensely from the DRAM and Infinity fabric overclocking. Both GeekBench versions are sensitive to memory performance and reward the scores accordingly. Regardless of what motherboard you’re using, for the given DRAM frequency, timings and CPU clock, your scores should be around the same ball park or better.
