First off, we want to thank XtremeSystems and AMD for giving TweakTown the opportunity to test Ryzen's solid state storage performance. We are pleased with the PCIe storage performance that Ryzen delivers. It is within striking distance of Intel and we believe that for the most part user experience between the two platforms is comparable. However, SATA performance between the two platforms is another matter. Ryzen is at a distinct disadvantage compared with Intel if you are running a SATA SSD.
It seems as though Ryzen is taking the planet by storm. We are thoroughly delighted that AMD is once again challenging Intel for supremacy because this is good for all of us. TweakTown is fully on board with Ryzen, and we are currently building a Ryzen storage platform and will be including Ryzen storage performance in our SSD reviews going forward.
TweakTown's SSD storage reviews are known for performance that is a cut above others. We believe that part of this is due to our preference for ASRock motherboards. We use them exclusively, and wholeheartedly recommend them to our readers. Our new Ryzen storage testing platform is currently being assembled. At the heart of it all is ASRock's awesome X370 Gaming K4 motherboard.
We will be pairing the X370 Gaming K4 with AMD's mighty 8-core, 16 thread Ryzen R7 1800X CPU, Corsair Platinum DDR4 and as much OC as we can squeeze from it all. If you want to know what to expect from your SSD with AMD's Ryzen platform, then as always, TweakTown has got you covered.
