About a couple of weeks back, EVGA released a teaser showing an upcoming DARK-branded product for what appeared to be a new motherboard for AMD's Ryzen processors. The teaser contained an image with the distinct Ryzen halo confirming the finding. Two days ago, we were teased with a photo of the board itself (image below) showing the underside of the product with the DARK logo plastered against the black PCB.
Today, we are apparently in for a glimpse of the performance of the board itself as the upcoming DARK X570S board was reportedly tested using an early BIOS version 0.10, and it seemingly does quite well in terms of memory overclocking. The Trident Z Royal dual-channel 16GB DDR4-4000 memory kit was reportedly used here and the DRAM was apparently able to overclock all the way up to 2467MHz, which totals 4933MT/s. The CAS latency (CL) achieved on the kit looks excellent too with timings of 14-13-11-21. A Geekbench 3 run was also completed indicating that the system is at least somewhat stable.
Perhaps the most exciting detail in this test is the use of the 6-core Ryzen 5 5600G "Cezanne" APU. The integrated memory controller (IMC) on the Zen 3 architecture that forms the base of all Ryzen 5000 processors has been immensely improved since last-gen and it now allows for very high RAM speeds, something that is quintessential for integrated graphics performance.
