DDR5-6000 Memory Performance On Linux, Scaling From DDR5 3000 to 6000 MT/s

Written by Michael Larabel in Memory on 4 March 2022 at 07:17 AM EST.

For the DDR5 memory scaling while running Linux games -- both native game ports and titles via Steam Play -- it depended upon the title for whether the higher DDR5 memory frequencies were paying off. There was some frame rate gains to enjoy for some of the Linux gaming benchmarks but not nearly as significant as the faster DDR5 memory speeds paying off for high performance computing, video encoding, code compilation, and other areas that enjoyed a greater impact from the G/SKILL TRIDENT Z5 DDR5-6000 memory on the Core i9 12900K Alder Lake desktop running Ubuntu Linux. Granted, if on a tight budget, you are likely best off waiting for better DDR5 availability and lower prices.
