Intel Core i9-13900K and Z790 motherboards finally certified for DDR5-7600 XMP 3.0 memory

Intel announced the specifications of the 13th-generation Core series at the Innovation 2022 event, including out-of-the-box support for DDR5-5600 memory. Using AMD Extended Profiles for Memory Overclocking or Intel Extreme Memory Profiles (XMP) 3.0, current desktop CPUs can facilitate memory overclocking (EXPO).

Intel lists XMP 3.0 supported configurations. This is a list of memory manufacturers and the exact CPU, motherboard, and memory models they are “self-certified” for. The 13th generation Core series is already included in this certification list, which shows that the flagship CPU, the i9-13900K, will support DDR5-7600 memory.

The G.Skill RAM on the ASUS Z790 ROG Maximus Hero and Apex cards has the fastest proven XMP profiles. Now that 1.4 Voltage and 36 CAS delay have been proposed, memory like DDR5-7466 or DDR5-7600 should work.

G-Skill DDR5-7600 CL36 – F5-7600J3648G16GX2-TZ5RK
G-skill DDR5-7466 CL36 – F5-7466J3648G16GX2-TZ5RK
G-skill DDR5-7466 CL36 – F5-7466J3648G16GX2-TZ5RK

It should be noted that the fastest DDR5 kit from G.Skill currently available is the Trident Z5 RGB, which has a speed of 6600 MT/sec. The aforementioned kits are not for sale yet. Gigabyte’s AORUS Tachyon and the ROG Maximum series are two of the more expensive boards that offer the fastest RAM. However, ROG Strix-F or MSI MPG Carbon are also available and are rated for 7200 MT/s.

At the Innovation event, Intel revealed support for faster memory “range up to 6,660 MT/s and beyond”. It also acknowledged that overclockers can reach speeds of over 10,000 MT/s, but most Raptor Lake users won’t be able to. While the fast 7200+ DDR5 memory is not currently for sale, these certifications may indicate that it may be updated soon.
