Does Ryzen 5 1500X supports memory speeds upto 3200Mhz or more?

Jump to solution

I am willing to buy a RYZEN 5 processor but reviewers are indicating that Ryzen processors scale good with more memory speeds, Ryzen 5 1500X reviewers are saying that they can't get more than 3000Mhz memory speed. A reviewer tested 3600Mhz memory speed on a Ryzen 7 processor and it beat a Intel Core i7-7700K processor in many gaming scenarios. So, what I'm asking is can I get my Ryzen 5 1500X to that kind of memory speed to get the best out of processor? If yes then which motherboard should I pick?

[Sorry for my bad english]

ok I've got the Ryzen 5 1500X on an Asus Prime B350-Plus running the latest BIOS 0606 update containing the AGESA  1.0.0.4a

the mainboard was flashed using AUTO settings and a DRAM  Frequency of 2400MHz for stability prior to flashing. The mainboard flashed successfully and the DRAM Frequency was changed to 3200 in the BIOS using the D.O.C.P. system is configured with a 256GB Samsung 950 Pro M.2 SSD with Windows Server 2016 Evaluation  installed. So far no issues encountered with memory at 3200MHz on the Asus Prime B350-Plus.

I'm loading Windows 10 Pro on a Samsung 840 Evo and configured the Ryzen 5 1500X with a Radeon RX480 8GB. Will test system stability with DDR4-3200 when Windows updates have been installed.

You're using a 1600X(6C12T) not a 1500X(4C8T).

Re: Does Ryzen 5 1500X supports memory speeds upto 3200Mhz or more?

I am using an Asus Prime B350-Plus motherboard with the latest bios update available 0606, I have tested a  Ryzen 7 1700 and a Ryzen 5 1600X with DDR4-3200. So far both CPU's have no problems running the memory at 3200. As the AM4 platform matures and optimizations are made to subsequent bios updates I see no reason why a Ryzen 5 1500X should be any different than the 6 or 8 core Ryzen's. The mainboards QVL Memory list is your source for memory support.

If they're not different then why majority of reviewers are not getting more than 2933Mhz memory speed? In same setup 1600X is getting 3200Mhz speed without breaking a sweat.

I'm thinking that 2933 maybe the sweet spot with some motherboards and others can push beyond 2933, I know that in my bios there's not much on the way of memory timings exposed to us, I can't even choose the command rate. When only two modules are installed, the bios automatically select 1T for the command rate, but with four modules it defaults to a command rate of 2T. I'm not one on overclocking the CPU, but I usually buy fast memory with the lowest latency, because they usually have a small margin for overclocking and you can always down clock the memory too.

I tried 2933 and it's more responsive than 3200, it may be that the AM4 platform is still maturing as well. I'm going to pull the trigger on a 1500X so I can see if I can get 3200 to run. I'll keep you posted, will take a couple of days to get the CPU, but I'll test it out as soon as I get it.

Thanks, please test it out ASAP, as I need to buy RAM for it and RAM prices are going to increase some time soon.
