Both do. As Sorgelig wrote:

Built-in DDR3 memory has hardware controller and it's shared between ARM and FPGA. ... DDR3 still has its useful potential. Some systems are not tied to exact RAM timings. Such systems usually can have different CPUs on board and thus RAM speed from CPU point of view is varying. These systems are Amiga (only for Fast RAM), PC. So, Amiga(minimig) can get a big boost from DDR3 if core will be tweaked to use it.
