    Again, from a birds eye view without the technicalities the point that I was making is very simple and straight forward. There are no misinformation or misunderstandings. I'm just stating a simple point while you're over stating things, but thank you. Just two different approaches.

    Edit: I said 1-4 cores when my mind was stuck on the past lol...corrected.

    Infinity fabric wise, that's why I opt for 3600 low CL RAM. 3600/3733 being the sweet spot. Cache wise, AMD shines in that area and we're seeing where it's paying off with the newer cpu's.

    I've stated multiple times that there are a lot of moving parts... not once did I say that the technical side of what makes the wheels turn is not complicated lol.

    The focus on frequency was to make a point on the examples given, which ultimately results into the overall gaming performance and fps. Simple simple. I get what you're saying with the details, but at the end of the day AMD still loses here in this department.

    I think we're really close to breaking the current barrier of core utilization beyond what we have now. Before Destiny 2 launched it was rumored that it would be able to use utilize a lot more cores, but that wasn't true as the statement at the time was confused with optimizing the game engine. We're not too far away to see a break through in the Dev realm with games... exciting times.

    I thought my explanation was a simplification. Lol. I'm great at hardware, but need to learn software more

    All good. :) BTW how were your timings on the G.Skill kit at 4133? Are the sticks forgiving? I assume those are a 3600 kit originally?

    I've been tuning RAM lately so it's something that's fresh on my mind.

    Those are the 4134 G.skill kits with 19-21-21 timings. I have 2 2x8GB kits. I've run them with CL14 3600 on my 1950X and at CL16@4000 on my skylake 6700K or 14-17-17@3733.

    Great stuff. I have the G.Skill 4266 kit on the Z390 Master and so far have it dialed in to 4266 @ 17-17-17 ... as this is my gaming rig, I'm happy with it at least running at advertised speeds with lower timings.

    Yeah, I'm sure if I had a different platform I could have had them run faster. But the Z170 with skylake men controller was hard to get 4 sticks running at 4000 on the maximus viii extreme. People were binning MB to get those speeds and I did it on 4 sticks.

    Now, I can't wait for DDR5. Whole new challenge with a new memory generation.

    Impressive for the Z170 board. Yea DDR5 is going to be great and I have a feeling that it'll be pretty strong, based on what we're seeing now with Samsung memory on components. It's pretty mind blowing to think that we'll have ram like at 5GHz that's faster than most CPU frequencies lol. Just wild...

    Wait for when HBM is integrated on package! 330MT up to 1TB/s type bandwidth, depending on type used and how much.
