An overclocker working with MSI and hiding under the pseudonym Toppc hinted at the ability of Ryzen 7000 processors to work with DDR5-6400 RAM. He shared this information on the Chinese social network Bilibili.
An enthusiast posted a blurry image of the CPU-Z window showing 64GB of DDR5 RAM running at 3202.7MHz (6400MT/s). In this case, the RAM works with clocks CL32-33-33-96. The screenshot itself does not confirm whether it is an Intel or AMD platform. However, this clarifies the title of the forum thread where the screenshot was posted.
Since AMD does not yet have desktop processors capable of working with DDR5 memory, we are undoubtedly talking about the upcoming Ryzen 7000 processors based on the Zen 4 architecture.
AMD Ryzen 7000 and 13th Gen Intel Core processors are said to support DDR5-5600 RAM without overclocking. Current Intel Alder Lake chips support 4800 MHz memory modules without overclocking. However, with the support of the Intel XMP 3.0 and AMD EXPO profiles, it will be possible to use faster memory modules with the new chips.
According to the latest rumors, the Ryzen 7000 series will debut in September. However, new details on AMD’s 600-series chipsets for new motherboards designed for future processors will be available this week. On August 4th, AMD has scheduled a Meet the Experts event for its partners to talk about the legacy AMD X670E and AMD X670 chipsets.
