AMD Brings Smart Access Memory (Resizable Bar) To Ryzen 3000 Desktop CPUs, Up To 16% Performance Boost In AAA Games
AMD Smart Access Memory or Resizable BAR technology is great when it works and we have seen now in multiple performance tests that the gains are there. It’s definitely not across the board but in certain titles, you can get a big boost in performance for free. For Ryzen 3000, AMD has stated that users can expect a performance boost of up to 16% which is pretty impressive. AMD showed the performance improvement with its own Radeon RX 6000 series class GPUs but we know that motherboard manufacturers have opened BAR support for NVIDIA GPUs on AMD motherboards too.
So continues the Nvidia GeForce RTX 30-series stock disaster: retailers are near-constantly sold out, resellers hawk the cards at ludicrously inflated prices, and digital currency miners bulk-buy what’s left to build gigantic Bitcoin or Ethereum mining rigs. If you’re just a PC owner wanting to know where to buy the Nvidia RTX 3080, you’re in for some drawn-out disappointment.
