AMD explains that its first AM5 processors will be able to provide memory overclocking. The Ryzen 7000 “Raphael” will be based on the “Zen 4” microarchitecture.
Joseph Tao from AMD specifies that these chips will be able to handle DDR5 memory frequencies. On this subject he declares
“Our first DDR5 platform for gaming is our Raphael platform. One of the great things about Raphael is that we’re really going to try and make a splash with overclocking and I’m just going to leave it at that, but speeds that you may have thought were impossible, may be possible with this spec of overclocking. »
Ryzen 7000 “Raphael” and RAMP technology
AMD is working on a new overclocking standard for DDR5 memory. It would be called Ryzen Accelerad Memory Profile aka RAMP. The objective is to offer an alternative to Intel’s XMP 3.0. Currently for its AM4 and DDR4 platforms, AMD offers A-XMP. The action is at the UEFI firmware level in order to translate settings from XMP profiles to AMD compatible settings. RAMP looks different.
In addition to classic memory frequency, timing and voltage, this technology will tackle the adjustment of many memory parameters more specific to the “Zen 4” memory controller.
Whether the AM5 “Raphael” processors will be the first or second AMD processors to support DDR5 (depends on the launch date of EPYC “Genoa” solutions). The current Ryzen 6000 “Rembrandt” mobile processors with “Zen 3+” architecture natively support DDR5 5200MHz RAM as well as LPDDR5 6400MHz.
Note that this RAMP technology is not a discovery. We already talked about it last January.
Ryzen 7000 series Zen 4, AMD will introduce RAMP, what is it?
