Crucial 2 x 16GB DDR5-5200 / DDR5-5600 Linux Memory Performance
While the AMD RDNA2 integrated graphics with the Ryzen 7000 series line-up aren't adequate for heavy gaming, they can handle some light games/graphically-rich software. The RDNA2 iGPU performance is contingent upon speedy memory for its optimal potential.
But if you are budget-minded, the Crucial DDR5-4800 memory available at around $52 USD per 16GB DIMM was the best value with Xonotic for referencing the lightweight gaming workloads. The Crucial DDR5-5200/5600 DIMMs maintained similar price-per-dollar to the GSKILL DDR5-6000 memory.
When firing up NASA's NPB tests that love memory bandwidth, the DDR5-6000 memory obviously came out in front while on a performance-per-dollar basis was comparable to the Crucial DDR5-5200/5600 DIMMs. The budget Crucial DDR5-4800 DIMMs were delivering the best value.
