    So then why is my slower 7980XE 34% faster than their 10980XE in the same test, at the same frequency?

    Seems you have missed the point. Different benchmarks can give different results. Remember also some benchmarks will benefits different with Quad vs Dual Channel ram.

    Can you please run 3DM Firestrike and post your results?

    The 10980XE has quad channel too though.

    Forgot to add in that you have a unknown in the shared results... The different setups from different reviews use all sorts of ram, oc'd ram, different ram speed, timings etc:) A lot can affect the system performance.

    This is absolutely right. RAM speeds, timings, ranks and channel mode can affect fps a lot. That makes a bit hard to compare an Intel CPU to an AMD CPU. Intel seems to react better to different RAM configuration than AMD

    Apparently the new Ryzen 5000 series are showing a 10% performance uplift by using (2) sticks of DDR4 instead of (4) sticks.


    PS, my DDR4 is decent. Maybe that’s it. But I was referring to the 10980XE at 4.8Ghz in the slide and not the 5950X

    Odd, yet Intel chips show a slight performance boost (gaming at least) using 4 DIMMS vs 2 DIMMS.

    Do you know if the settings are the same? That 16,388 score is much higher than everything on their chart..What does that CPU boost to normally?

    Even if you had better RAM, there can't be a score difference of that much.

    Here is +2000 points above. As I said in my posts, no point in speculate in the results or why the results don't match if you don't know the unknown. And ram can make an difference. Same with Os version, benchmark software version, drivers, bloat etc. Here 4.8 and ram at 3800MHz. Aka 2000 point higher than tps3443 but with "so called" slower ram. In exactly same way as I can beat many with slower sticks but with same/lower Cpu clock speed (4-6-8 cores processors). Too many variables to have the final answers.

    This is an interesting video. I follow this dude on YouTube and he is showing here the big gaming performance hit that a 10900K can get by using slow RAM sticks and not overclocking the ring ratio:
