Now we are going to start some application benchmarks on this motherboard. To start us out, we are going to use Aida64 and take a look at some different memory bandwidths. These first tests were running the memory at 3200MHz.
As we can see above, at a memory default speed of 3200 we hit 44,503 MB/s speed. Now taking a look at the write speed we see we hit 25,551MB/s. Naturally, the write speeds will be slower than read speeds.
When we ran the PCMark 10 benchmark we can see that this board came in at 6641 which again, if you look at TheFPSReview B550 motherboard review is pretty much right in line with the others we have reviewed.
The Cinebench R20 result was set with the CPU at the default setting of 3600. As we can see, the results have come in a bit quicker than other B550 boards we have reviewed, however, that could be the result of the difference between the Ryzen 5 3600 and Ryzen 7 3700X chips.
We ran this Blender Benchmark “Classroom” at the default motherboard settings which included the CPU at 3600 and RAM at 3200. This system completed the benchmark in 8 minutes and 11 seconds. We have to assume this large gain against the other B550 motherboards reviewed was due to the difference between the Ryzen 5 3600 chip and the Ryzen 7 3700X chip.
The 3DMark Timespy result is 6338, since this is very GPU dependent comparing it with other reviews here using different video cards wouldn’t be prudent. This result is on par with what we’d expect with this configuration.
