Memory Analysis

We're using our standard Core i7-8700K platform for testing, overclocked to an all-core 4.8GHz to better reflect an enthusiast's system. As a comparison, and to see any differences from running even faster memory, we've also benchmarked a 32GB kit (4x8GB) of Corsair Vengeance RGB Pro DDR4-3,600 memory alongside this kit. We're evaluating real-world performance in Cinebench, HandBrake, 3DMark Time Spy, and Far Cry 5.

Synthetic memory tests are almost always going to favour faster memory. That said, any figure over 40GB/s for each of the first three parameters is thought of as good for a dual-channel Z370 setup.

What's surprising, and repeatable, is the excellent latency figure of just 47ns from the Aorus RGB memory, achieved with 16-18-18-38-2T timings at 3,200MHz.
