I've tried looking for benchmarks comparing RAM frequency with CPU performance for the Threadripper 1950X, but I can't seem to find what I'm looking for. I'm looking to install 8gb in Quad Channel (32gb total) of 1Rx8 SS RAM. I know that the Threadripper performance increases with RAM frequency due to the design of the infinity fabric, so all the benchmarks show increased performance as RAM frequency increases. However, I can't seem to find benchmarks for increased frequency at decreased timings. Specifically, I'm looking for 3200 @ 14 vs 3600 @ 18. On paper, the 3200 @ 14 is faster ram (8.75ns) vs the 3600 @ 18 (10ns); but the infinity fabric seems to love RAM frequency increases. Thus, I'm not sure which RAM to buy. I've checked the VQL and both are listed at compatible at those speeds, so I'm assuming I should get the rated speeds on each. Any input (or preferably links to benchmarks) from you guys on which route to go? Cost difference between the two is $1, so I'm now only concerned with performance.
