CPU and Gaming Tests

Moving over to real-world applications, having either DDR4-3,200 or DDR4-3,600 memory doesn't make hardly any difference when using either multi-core CPU benchmarks or gaming with a GeForce GTX 1080 Ti graphics card.

This is why we believe it sensible for Aorus to launch with Samsung B-die ICs running at a native 3,200MHz - it's a good compromise between quality, speed and cost.

And speaking of those B-die chips and propensity for low-latency performance at high(er) speeds, we increased voltage to 1.4V and managed to run them at 3,466MHz with 14-14-14-34-1T timings. If it were us running these day to day, we'd keep the same native 3,200MHz speed and those lower timings. Doing so adds about three per cent to the synthetic performance.
