Long MemTest86 runtimes with Ryzen 2700X.

I have been trying to verify some Corsair Vengeance RGB Pro memory on a Ryzen 2700X build.
I am seeing some very long MemTest86 runtimes on Ryzen 2700X @3.7GHz versus runtime on an Intel i7-4790K or i7-4770K @ 3.7GHz with same amount of memory installed on all machines (32GB).

I am running MemTest86 Tests 0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10 + Test 13 (Hammer Test).
I am running 4 passes of the above tests.

Has anyone else noticed long MemTest86 runtimes on Ryzen 2700X?


Increasing the Ryzen Memory to 64GB on Ryzen build the runtimes are ridiculous at times.
Runtime for 4 pass of MemTest86 with 64GB of DDR4 installed is > 24hours in some cases.

(That result is a Pass - i.e the memory is o.k. according to MemTest86.)


I was wondering if PassMark might need to produce a version of MemTest 86 specifically compiled to run on Ryzen 2700X?
