Anyone tried using SAM with a ryzen 5 2600 ?

I went through hell, I replaced my motherboard after it died because of a bios update and after replacing it I found out that one of my  ram sticks was also dead for no reason so I had to sell and replace the kit, all because I wanted to try SAM, so did anyone with a Ryzen 5 2600 try SAM? and was there any difference in performance? I know that it's only supported for 3000 series and 5000 series but I thought I should ask if someone have used SAM with this cpu.

 

*My motherboard is an asus rog b450 gaming f

I was not able to get it to work on my B350/2700x system. You didn't mention which board you have as that plays a role. Latest BIOS for my board before they say not recommended for Pinnacle Ridge (Zen+) is AGESA 1.0.0.1.

I presume SAM = Sequential Access Memory. How does it work when it's not frying BIOS and RAM sticks?

MODERATE TO SEVERE AUTISTIC, COMPLICATED WITH COVID FOG

 

Due to the above, I've likely revised posts <30 min old, and do not think as you do.

Yes, sorry, it's an asus rog b450 f gaming motherboard(with latest bios update), All I know is that it supports b450's but what I want to know if it works with this specific cpu

You kind of understood the question in a wrong way, which is my fault for telling the whole story, what I want to know is:

will the Ryzen 5 2600 put in a b450 mobo be able to run SAM efficiently? 

and will it give good results?

That, I can't say, as I'm trying to find out what it is, myself. But GuiltySpark made it pretty clear that they couldn't make it work with a 2700X, and that your platform isn't sufficient for it, as the system requirements state only 5000-series and certain 3000 series. Not to be snarky, but the 2600 and 2700X are neither.

yep, I was asking because I can see rebar and enabling 4g decoding(which allows me to use SAM) in my bios, but I didn't want to risk it so that's why I asked if anyone have used it with this cpu  just to see if it does anything, because I have an rx 6600xt and the bottleneck is reducing fps by 20%,so I thought hey! lets use SAM for more fps.

 

anyway, thanks dude, appreciate the help

Also, a 500-series (A520 / B550 / Z570) is required in addition to the right processors. I neglected to reiterate that earlier.

Yeah so I kinda had the same thought as you. Hmm, I see the Above 4G decoding option so I thought.. maybe? 

 

With the latest AGESA code available for my board being 1.0.0.1, definitely wasn't going to happen in the end.

Ha, Smart Access Memory, AMD's fancy marketing name for Resizable BAR. It actually is quite impressive with some AMD GPU's. With Nvidia the gains are minimal at best.
