One of MSI’s overclockers, Toppc, has recently started to tease what the Ryzen 7000 DDR5 memory is capable of. A screenshot has been taken from the CPU-Z tool which shows that 64 GB of the DDR5 memory is clocked at a speed of 3202.7 MHz with a CAS latency of 32 clocks.
The screenshot isn’t enough to confirm whether this is the Intel’s Raptor Lake or Alder Lake or if it’s the AMD platform. However, we do get to know a thing or two from the title of the screenshot. We do know that AMD’s desktops systems don’t support DDR5 memory currently, hence confirming that this is the Ryzen 7000 CPU which has been codenamed as Raphael. The Raphael is based on Zen4 architecture.
Ryzen 7000 series as well as Intel’s 13th Gen Core ‘Raptor Lake’ will both support DDR5-5600 memory out of the box, meaning there will be a massive increase in speed as compared to the Alder Lake which comes with memory modules with speeds of 4800 MT/s. Toppc hasn’t mentioned which memory was used here, but it is clearly 400 MHz higher than the default memory. MSI’s flagship X670E motherboard supports DDR5-5600 memory and can go faster with overclocking.
Rumor has it that the Ryzen 7000 series is going to launch in September, however, more details are expected to show up within this week as AMD plans to showcase it officially during their Meet the Expert event.
