Question Is this memory actually DDR 3200?

I've brought some new memory for my Skylake system, ready for a DDR4 Alder Lake upgrade next year. An pair of 8gig sticks, "Patriot DDR4 PC4-25600 3200Mhz".
I know my motherboard doesn't support memory this fast but CPU-Z is confusing me:


I see the XMP-3200 profile, but what's with the max bandwidth at the top? My slower sticks have a lower max bandwidth so I don't think it's the motherboard limitation, is it related to the JEDEC/XMP profiles or?

Thanks!
 
Thanks for the fast reply! It's a B150M chipset from 6ish years ago https://www.gigabyte.com/uk/Motherboard/GA-B150M-D3H-rev-10/sp#sp
Does that mean I'll have to enable XMP on my future board? I guess I was expecting to see a JEDEC profile with 1600/3200 on it. My older memory sticks have a JEDEC and an XMP profile with the same frequency, just different timings.
Yes, XMP has to be anabled to get full tested frequency at recommended settings.
