Hello
I have cpu ryzen 3 2200g with rx 570
2x 4gb ddr4 2400mhz now i heard that this ram speed is too slow for amd cpu and need atleast 3200mhz
I want to buy 2x 8gb 3200mhz cl16
But my quesstion is if this cpu support 3200mhz ? Coz some ppl says its cap to 2933mhz for this cpu i check on amd website says:
System Memory Specification
2993MHz

I check for ryzen 5 3600x and it say
System Memory Specification
3200MHz
How its possible i know most ppl with ryzen 5 have 3600mhz or more there is no benfit of having faster ram speed
Than what System Memory Specification says on amd wensite?

First generation Ryzen pretty much got 2933MHz as it's best speeds. Some ppl with the best ram could hit 3200MHz. By second gen, that had improved and many ppl got 3200MHz. By third gen, most everybody can get 3200MHz and the 'sweet spot' where the cpu performs best per $ is at 3733MHz.

So it's really not fair to try and compare a 2nd Gen cpu to a third gen, there's been to many improvements.

Also, the 2200g is an APU. It has an igpu, so is standalone, doesn't need a graphics card to work. Instead, it has the option of its own graphics, which use the pc ram. Making faster ram a benefit to graphics.

Unlike Intel, amd uses ram speeds in its communications between cores. Faster the ram, faster the cores talk to each other, better the cpu is.

So faster ram helps, upto a point, after which the gains don't warrant the price.
