MSI Overclocker Demonstrates AMD Ryzen 7000 CPU with DDR5-6400 CL32 Memory

One of MSI’s overclockers, Toppc, has recently started teasing what the Ryzen 7000 DDR5 memory is capable of. A screenshot has been taken of the CPU-Z tool showing that 64 GB of DDR5 memory is clocked at a speed of 322.7 MHz with a CAS latency of 32 clocks.

The screenshot is not enough to confirm whether this is Intel’s Raptor Lake or Alder Lake or whether it is the AMD platform. However, we learn a thing or two from the title of the screenshot. We do know that AMD’s desktop systems do not currently support DDR5 memory, confirming that this is the Ryzen 7000 CPU codenamed Raphael. The Raphael is based on Zen4 architecture.

The Ryzen 7000 series and Intel’s 13th Gen Core ‘Raptor Lake’ will both support DDR5-5600 memory out of the box, meaning there will be a massive speed increase compared to the Alder Lake that comes with memory modules with speeds of 4800. MT/s. Toppc didn’t mention what memory was used here, but it’s clearly 400MHz higher than the stock memory. MSI’s flagship X670E motherboard supports DDR5-5600 memory and can go faster with overclocking.

The Ryzen 7000 series is rumored to launch in September, but more details are expected to emerge this week as AMD plans to officially showcase it at their Meet the Expert event.
