Almost a month ago, we tested the Ryzen 7 1800X on the Gigabyte board was able to get It running at DDR4-3200. This is not easily achieved without fine tuning the BIOS timings and settings provided by Gigabyte.
Today, we tested the Ryzen 5 1600X with the newer ASRock AB350 Gaming K4 motherboard and is pleased that the new AGESA codes are now implemented into the newer boards. It can now support DDR4-3200 out of the box by selecting XMP Profile #1 (on the ASRock board). Here is a screen shot showing the CPUID screen shot and it’s benchmark results.
The 6C 12T are all maxed out during the test and it can be clearly seen from this benchmark the performance for both single and multithread surpassed even a Core i7-6900K.
