AMD’s official Ryzen Twitter account has showcased their Ryzen 7 1700 running with 3400MHz memory, throwing aside rumours that Ryzen is not compatible with fast DDR4 memory. 
 
In AMD’s internal testing they used ASUS’ Crosshair VI Hero motherboard and a dual channel kit of 3400MHz memory from G.Skill, which ran at 3400MHz with CS latencies of 17-17-37-63.

Please note that this testing was conducted on AMD’s Ryzen 7 1700, which is AMD’s lowest Ryzen SKU at the time of launch, which should mean that all Ryzen CPUs are capable of running fast DDR4 memory speeds with the correct motherboards and new BIOS revisions. 

Below is a CPU-Z screenshot showcasing the memory speeds of AMD’s new Ryzen 7 CPU.

When we review AMD’s Ryzen CPUs we will be having a deep look at memory clock speeds and exactly what each of our CPU samples are capable of. Will we be able to exceed 3400MHz?
