G.Skill and Team Group have released new high-performance DDR4 memory modules that the firms are guaranteeing to be compatible with AMD’s latest Ryzen 2000-series CPUs. The modules operate at up to 3600 MT/sec and are currently the fastest DIMMs compatible with AMD's Ryzen 2000-series processors and X470 platforms.
Modern CPUs have integrated memory controllers and the latter have rather unique peculiarities that affect their work, particularly when operating at overclocked frequencies above the JEDEC standards. For example, AMD’s original Ryzen processors are incompatible with high-performance memory modules designed primarily for Intel’s Skylake and Kaby Lake CPUs. Meanwhile, Intel’s Coffee Lake processors require different sub timings at DDR4-4000 and higher speeds than Kaby Lake CPUs. In general, AMD’s Ryzen 2000-series processors are compatible with modules designed...
With recent roadmaps and DDR2 information, we are starting to get a clear picture of where the new memory standard fits.
