This is the first time I've ever heard about RAM speeds influencing gameplay, because I've never fiddled with iGPUs.
Are there any tests that compare the speeds or will OC3D maybe even review this unit and compare low speed to high speed for APUs?

We do have plans to release additional APU content in the future, though sadly some personal issues have gotten in the way of my testing this week.

It is unlikely that the SMACH team will send us a review sample for this, but Ryzen Embedded is just Raven Ridge with slightly different specifications.

With the introduction of Ryzen ram speeds matter quite a bit, I myself played around with 2400 and 3400 speeds and noticed a fairly sizeable chunk in certain games.

A good example -

That's way more expensive than it should be.
