    VRAM frequency vs. Latency

    Anyone knows if games generally favors high frequency over low latency VRAM? I'm asking because I modified the bios on my Rx 580 to use the 1900MHz memory strap above 2000MHz. Before the bios mod I clocked the Vram @2400MHz, after the mod Max is about 2150MHz but my 3Dmark score increased. So...
