1903 UPDATE ISSUE!

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I have a Ryzen 5 1600 Build. With Corsair Vengence Pro RGB, DDR4, 3200 Mghz. On a Asrock X370, and Windows 10 Pro.
I have my RAM Clocked in at 3200 on my bios, but Windows only see's/uses 1600.
My friend has a similar build but with a Ry5 2600, Same Ram but his is 3000 all on a Asus Prime X470 with Windows 10 Home.
He is having the same exact issue.
So If you updated to 1903 Please Check your speeds! Wonder if its a Ryzen only problem.
Check Comments for Pics of my prof.

Check with something proper like CPU-Z?

It could just be that Windows has changed to showing actual operating frequency instead of effective transfer speed?

Since DDR4-3200 operates at 1600MHz and has an effective speed of 3200MT/s.

CPU-Z isn't always right. It showed my memory as 665MHz, when it's actually at 1333MHz (even Windows got it right)


Current PC: i5-3570, Gigabyte GA-B75M-D3H, 12 GB RAM @1333 MHz, Sapphire RX 460. 240GB Crucial BX500, 500GB Seagate HDD, Antec Truepower Classic 650W

Peripherals: Old Logitech mouse, Redragon K552-R Kumara, LG Flatron W2353V, Sony ZX770BN headphones.

Laptop: Dell Latitude E5470 upgraded by my store (i5 6300U, 8GB DDR4 @2133, 500GB SSD)

CPU-Z was showing it correctly then.

If the memory here is really running at 1600MT/s, CPU-Z would show it running at 800MHz.

That's how dual channel works, it splits the speed between the two channels, so 665MHz is correct if your RAM is running at 1333MHz.

You're mixing Dual Channel and Dual Data Rate. Two completely different things.

Dual Data Rate means transferring data on the rising and falling edge of the clock signal. Dual Channel just means that the memory controller has 2 channels to access 2 sets of memory banks for double throughput.
