3DMARK Time Spy
Again with 3DMARK Time Spy, we have decided to neglect the benchmark's final score, focusing instead on the benchmarks individual graphics and CPU test suites. Here we see once again that the boost to 3200MHz memory does deliver both CPU and GPU performance improvements, as well as a notable performance gap between the Ryzen 3 2200G and the Ryzen 5 2400G.
When looking at Standard Time Spy test scores, we can see that in the benchmark's CPU scores we see a boost of 3.6% and 5.6% on the Ryzen 3 2200G and the Ryzen 5 2400G respectively when jumping from 2400MHz DDR4 to 3200MHz DDR4 memory. Moving on to Time Spy's GPU scores we can see more substantial performance boosts of around 8.4% and 10% for each respective CPU.
Looking at Time Spy Extreme, we can see a very similar jump in performance for both APUs, though it remains to be seen whether or not the same principle applies to actual games.
It is clear that memory speed is having a larger impact on AMD's 2400G, which makes sense given the increased number of CPU threads and Vega stream processors that need to be fed using the same levels of memory bandwidth.
