    ... both AMD and Intel systems were equipped with 8GB DDR4 2133MHz RAM ...
    So the Ryzen system was leaving a lot of performance in the tank by using comparatively slow memory, then...

    It was overclocked to 2666MHZ in his previous one and the Intel system was running at 2133MHZ. Intel CPUs benefit a lot from faster RAM too:

    http://www.eurogamer.net/articles/di...i5-6500-review

    That means in comparison the Intel system is more hobbled overall.

    This is also the first video he did a few days ago with a GTX1060:

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DbDpMWo7XTk

    In that video he said he ran the RAM at 2666MHZ.

    Edit!!

    From his GTX1060 video:

    -8GB RAM DDr4 2133MHz running at 2666MHz with XMP (2x4GB Kingston HyperX Fury)
    http://amzn.to/2nYlJfP (Affiliate Link)
    He said his Intel motherboard was locked so was restricted to 2133MHZ.

    He used XMP to overclock the RAM to 2666MHZ.

    Edit!!

    He is running the RAM at 2666MHZ too in the newer video:

    -8GB RAM DDr4 2133MHz running at 2666MHz with XMP (2x4GB Kingston HyperX Fury)
    http://amzn.to/2nYlJfP (Affiliate Link)

    The Intel is locked to 2133MHZ due to the platform.

    Re: Early AMD Ryzen 5 1400 review and comparison leaks

    Interestingly if you look at ROTTR with a GTX1060 and a RX480,the DX12 scores are not only better all-round on the RX480,but the Ryzen R5 and i5 7400 are much closer together with the R5 pushing ahead in the most CPU intensive part of the Village of the Remnants.

    This is replicating a lot of what other channels have been seeing regarding ROTTR on Ryzen with Nvidia cards,it seems to have less performance under DX12 relative to the Intel CPUs,but not when using an AMD card.

    Edit!!

    Any chance Hexus can use an AMD card too during their R5 testing??

    Any chance an R5 1400 will be able to be unlocked to an 8c/16t chip? Or will the extra cores be lasered off or something? Probably wishful thinking to expect otherwise.

    8GB of ram, have we timewarped back to 2012 ?
    Funny how the system has as much vram and system ram.

    Since amd haven't pulled the vids for breach of nda, I smell a marketing plant

    I did think they was they will be using the die as the 1700-1800x, I would guess there will be physical lock outs but you never know.

    Still waiting to pull the trigger on a 1700 build, just waiting for the ram speed issues to be sorted.
