I do agree that DDR4 is doing well in games but you're comparing extremely mature DDR4 to baby DDR5, and it's impressive that the DDR5 can already surpass the DDR4 when properly tweaked - that was not the case with DDR3 to DDR4.
I still feel the ddr5 owners may need to change the board at some point.
B350/x370 generation was a mess with memory.With B550 is much easier.
