In early 2023, AMD and Intel collaborated to enable DDR5 memory support beyond binary options, introducing modules with capacities of 24GB and 48GB. This expanded DDR5 platform memory support from 128GB to 192GB with all DIMM slots filled. Today, MSI is unveiling its readiness to support a capacity of 256GB.
Credit for this accomplishment goes to Kingston, creators of the Fury Renegade DDR5 memory. Each module boasts a 64GB memory capacity, enabling motherboards with four DIMM slots to reach a total capacity of 256GB, while dual-DIMM motherboards can now support 128GB.
MSI has not officially disclosed the specific motherboards supporting this increased capacity, but they have indicated that compatible platforms will receive a BIOS update. As an illustration, MSI has presented the AMD Ryzen 9 7900X & MSI PRO X670-P WIFI platform as an example of supporting the 256GB capacity. The accompanying screenshot is somewhat blurry, making it challenging to discern the details, yet the Windows Task Manager distinctly displays the 256GB capacity.
This accomplishment underscores the strong collaboration between MSI and leading memory brands to achieve enhanced performance and remarkable milestones. The partnered memory for this achievement is Kingston FURY Renegade DDR5 memory, offering an impressive 64GB capacity per module. Built on Micron’s industry-leading 1β (1-beta) technology, enables new capacities not seen before for dual channel PCs.
