To take advantage of Infinity Cache, you will want 4 modules of ram.
This didn't used to matter (much) on previous AMD platforms; in fact, running 2 sticks of RAM was sometimes better because it'd be easier to stabilize the tighter timings and higher frequencies than running 4 sticks of RAM. Now, with Zen 3 and the AMD Ryzen 9 5950X, R9 5900X, R7 5800X, and Ryzen 5 5600X, it's become clear that 2x8GB vs. 4x8GB can impact performance, although this may not carry to other capacities as you exit single-rank configurations. In this benchmarking we're looking at several kits of memory in the beginnings of a "best memory" performance round-up for Zen 3, but we broke it into an initial 2x vs. 4x stick test.
Yes, we know it's to do with ranks. As stated, we have another video coming up with more detail. Everything is rushed with a launch. Re: Speaking with Wendell, we'll hopefully be doing something next week! He seems to indicate 2x16GB is a sweet spot, so we'll talk with him more about that soon and hope to feature him in a video!
Brenics ~ Just to point out I do believe Chris Roberts is going down as the man who cheated backers and took down crowdfunding for gaming.
Never forget 3 mile Island and never trust a government official or company spokesman.
I believe you are making something more difficult then it is. I am sticking with my original analysis.
It's a completely new memory controller, this is why I am not going to jump down peoples throats for having a difference of interpretation, if it is wrong on "either or".This shouting down phenom in media is pretty much what I'm writing my blog about, though specific to social media, the same theory can be applied to a host media types. .
