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?

I think that under fast memory I'd say 4000+ hopefully Tom will also try different memory in his reviews.Quote

I would call 4000+MHz Ultra fast, especially given how insane the prices are on those DIMMS.

Here is how I would class DDR4 memory speeds

2400-2800 - Standard (seriously, who needs 2133 given the price of 2400-2666?)
3000-3400 - fast
3600+ - ultra fastQuote

Yeah, 3000Mhz seems to be the standard for 'enthusiast' class systems these days. Anything below that is for more modest systems. Anything above it is either because you want the absolute best irrelevant of cost or you would actually benefit from faster memory.Quote

We'll see, but if the rumors are true, bandwith wise the Ryzen IMC is much better than the intel counterpart. They can extract more bandwith from a similar speed memory.Quote

Hopefully you have the money for those dimmsQuote
