AMD is finally back in the game with the launch of Ryzen. Ryzen is undoubtedly going to be massively popular, which is why TweakTown is planning to do several Ryzen builds for testing various categories of hardware performance. We have decided that Ryzen will be a part of our solid state storage reviews going forward; so, if you want to know what level of SSD performance you can expect from your Ryzen build, TweakTown will have the answers you are looking for.
We were able to get some limited hands-on time with Ryzen at GDC (Game Developers Conference) 2017 courtesy of XtremeSystems owner and world class overclocker Charles Wirth, or "Fugger" as he is known to most of the world.
Like all of you reading this, we wanted to see how Ryzen stacks up against Intel in terms of SSD storage performance.
We only had a few hours to test a couple of SSDs on the Ryzen platform so we couldn't run our usual testing suite, but we did get enough that we can get an accurate idea of what you can expect from Ryzen-based SSD storage performance.
We tested utilizing AMD's top of the line Ryzen R7 1800X running on the AM4 X370 Enthusiast Chipset.
The motherboard we had access to was GIGABYTE's top of the line AORUS AX370-Gaming 5.
The DRAM supplied was Corsair Vengeance LPX DDR 4 3000MHz.
Altogether a top-end Ryzen testing platform. We ran everything at stock speeds and air-cooled. It is important to keep in mind that motherboard was not running on a finalized BIOS so there may be some future improvements that could positively affect performance.
