The R1b chronologically:
Bell Beakers > Single Grave Culture > Corded Ware Culture > Yamnaya (unlikely now) / Sredny Stog 2 > Eastern Hunter-Gatherers > Ancient North Eurasians
—“Great. Thank you. So the gene flow for Rib is out of Corded ware. But does that change the technology(culture) flow from Yamnaya into Europe?”—Curt Doolittle
They had more or less the same culture; I mean, genetically they were identical and most definitely spoke the same PIE language.
I can’t say anything about potential technological differences. In the end, I’m pretty sure the later descendants of Sredny Stog (Proto-Indo-Iranians) destroyed whatever was left of Yamnaya, absorbing what they could.
The Catacomb culture, a descendant of Yamnaya which was heavily influenced by Proto-Indo-Iranians, held a lot of sway over Mycenaean Greece judging by shared material traditions.
