If you've read our recent memory reviews, then you know we've been exploring the performance and overclocking characteristics of Samsung-based dual-rank memory modules. It's been an enlightening dive down the performance rabbit hole, but the high price of those kits means that they're out of reach for the average user. So, are dual-rank memory kits only for those with deep pockets? The new XPOWER Zenith kit from Silicon Power proves that you can have 32 GB of dual-rank magic and have money left to spend elsewhere.

I have a Ryzen 7 5700g and can tell you for sure that dual rank dimms make a ton of difference. When running Corsair Vengeance LPX @ 3200 with PBO enabled, it will score 8950-9000 on Geekbench5- just changing the ram to so old EVGA 3200 dual rank dimms it will score roughly 10000 in geekbench 5. It seems that almost everything is affected by single/dual rank on this APU.
Nice review, always enjoy reading detailed reviews of computer goods. Thanks for taking the time

Thanks for the input with regards to Ryzen! Although it's admittedly small, I have found that dual rank offers performance gain for real-world tasks too like encoding and parametric rendering/modeling.
