Smart Access Memory on Zen 2 CPUs - The Power of Resizable Bar!

Assassin's Creed: Valhalla - Resizable Bar On VS Off

Smart Memory Access reveals the All-AMD Advantage on Gaming Desktops

Assassin's Creed: Valhalla - Resizable Bar On VS Off

If the results below show anything, it's that Smart Access Memory works on Zen 2 processors. This is a strong result for AMD's Smart Access Memory technology and the potential of PCIe's Resizable Bar feature on game performance. At 1080p Assassin's Creed Valhalla's average framerates increased by 20%, and at 4K average framerates increased by 10.7%.

While average framerate increases are already impressive, 1st percentile framerates see a larger boost. At 4K, 1st percentile framerates increased from 36.3 FPS to 47 FPS, an increase of 29.4%. That's incredible. While out other Smart Access Memory results are not this positive, these gains alone highlight the potential of Resizable BAR support.

Yeah, it is crazy how much extra performance the feature brings to some games. It will be interesting how games utilise this feature in the future, especially when Nvidia adopts a form of it.Quote

Some X470 and B450 boards do, I wouldn't expect the full functionality though as the boards are quite literally missing the hardware needed for full PCI-E 4 support.
