AMD prom­ises Ryzen RAM tweaks

Custom PC - - COMING SOON / NEWS -

AMD’s Ryzen CPUs have blown us away re­cently, but one nig­gle is mem­ory compatibility – we cur­rently rec­om­mend go­ing no fur­ther than 2933MHz on most mem­ory with Ryzen, but AMD says it plans to ad­dress this is­sue in an up­date in June. In a blog post on AMD’s web­site, Robert Hal­lock from AMD out­lined the plans for the AMD Generic En­cap­su­lated Sys­tem Ar­chi­tec­ture (AGESA), which is cur­rently on ver­sion 1.0.0.4, but will bring some new changes with ver­sion 1.0.0.6 via motherboard EFI up­dates.

The im­prove­ments in­cluded added di­viders to ac­com­mo­date mem­ory fre­quen­cies from 2666MHz to 4000MHz, with plenty of set­tings in be­tween, in­clud­ing 3200MHz. ‘Keep­ing in mind that this is over­clock­ing ter­ri­tory, man­ual or au­to­mated con­trol of these pa­ram­e­ters should nev­er­the­less make it a lit­tle more straight­for­ward to use DDR4-3200 mod­ules,’ says Hal­lock, ‘or faster if you have the tal­ent!’
