When AMD implied a number of weeks in the past that its next-generation Ryzen 7000-series ‘Raphael’ processors would have outstanding DDR5 overclocking capabilities, it did not actually elaborate on the capabilities. However because it seems, Raphael will assist DDR5-5200 reminiscence out-of-box, in keeping with Apacer, a number one provider of reminiscence modules.
Apacer not too long ago printed a desk (found by @momomo_us) describing which forms of reminiscence are supported by fashionable and upcoming processors from AMD and Intel. Intel’s Alder Lake and Sapphire Rapids CPUs assist DDR5-4800 reminiscence, similar to AMD’s Ryzen 6000 ‘Rembrandt’ APUs. In the meantime, AMD’s Ryzen 7000 ‘Raphael’ and EPYC 7004 ‘Genoa’ processors based mostly on the Zen 4 microarchitecture are stated to assist quicker DDR5-5200 SDRAM.
DDR5-5200 reminiscence modules will present about 8.3% greater peak reminiscence bandwidth than DDR5-4800 DRAM sticks presently formally supported by Intel’s Alder Lake processors, so AMD’s next-generation desktop CPUs could have a barely extra superior reminiscence subsystem when in comparison with Intel’s current processors. In the meantime, since DDR5-5200 is inside JEDEC’s specs for DDR5, it’s logical to count on Intel to assist this velocity sooner or later as properly (in spite of everything, Apacer’s desk says nothing about reminiscence subsystem of Intel’s Raptor Lake processors).
Whereas Intel’s current twelfth Technology Core ‘Alder Lake’ CPU formally assist DDR5-4800 reminiscence, so long as they’re correctly cooled, they will deal with reminiscence information switch charges 8,000 MT/s or greater. To that finish, it’s affordable to count on AMD’s next-generation Ryzen ‘Raphael’ CPUs to be at the very least as succesful as Intel’s Alder Lake chips, so their DDR5 overclocking capabilities needs to be significantly extra spectacular than out-of-box DDR5 assist.
DDR5 was designed to supply important efficiency and capability upgrades when in comparison with DDR4 reminiscence, so over time DDR5 reminiscence chips will additional acquire each efficiency and capability. Proper now high-speed DDR5 modules are fairly costly and It stays to be seen whether or not excessive velocity reminiscence modules acquire important recognition with subsequent technology processors.
