Yes, I saw that he did that, and it's interesting that we haven't seen any actual DAW data from testing at different memory speeds (as far as I can recall).

Well, some users seem to hit low CL and high speeds. Not sure why others have such problems finding the right combinations.

So IF someone finally proves, it's irrelevant for this massively threaded workflow.. it's good news IMO.

I have to disagree. The Ryzen works very very well for what it is, and if it would work better with faster/lowerCL RAM then that would be better. One would then have the option of speeding up one's system.
