Memory Analysis

We're using the AMD Ryzen 2700 platform for testing, overclocked to an all-core 4.0GHz to better reflect an enthusiast's system. As a comparison, and to see any differences for running faster memory, we've also benchmarked a 16GB kit (2x8GB) of G.Skill's Trident Z RGB DDR-3200 14-14-14 memory, usually available for a little more than the £225 asking price of the HyperX. We're benchmarking AIDA (memory analysis), Cinebench, HandBrake, 3DMark Time Spy, and Far Cry 5.

Looking at memory bandwidth and latency first.

You would expect DDR4-3200 14-14-14 memory to outpace the DDR4-2933 15-17-17 speed and latencies present in the HyperX RAM. Still, getting over 40GB/s on an AMD Ryzen platform is good. Let's see how it affects real-world applications.
