Ryzen 7000 cpus will have a slight advantage over Intel 13s in DDR5 memory support
Intel's 13th generation Raptor Lake-s desktop cpus will be released around the same time as AMD's Ryzen 7000 desktop cpus. Both platforms will have full support for PCIe Gen 5.0 and DDR5, but the newly leaked spec sheet may hint that red team (AMD) may have a slight edge over blue team (Intel) in memory support capabilities.
Industrial motherboard manufacturer MiTAC lists the native memory speeds supported by the upcoming 13th generation Intel Alder Lake desktop CPU in its PH12ADI motherboard specifications. Raptor Lake-S desktop cpus will receive ddr5-5200 improvements over Alder Lake's DDR5-4800 native speeds, according to the manufacturer.
Previous reports speculated on ddr5-5600 native speeds for Intel's Raptor Lake desktop CPU family, but it looks like the DDR5-5200 is becoming the more credible solution. This represents an overall 8.3% improvement over the existing Alder Lake native memory speed.
In memory, AMD may have an edge. APACER revealed in the slide show that the new Ryzen 7000 'Raphael' series will have DDR5-5200 native speeds, but there are rumors that the actual speeds will be higher and rated at DDR5-5600. In addition, AMD is confident in its EXPO (Ryzen Extended Profiles for Overclocking) technology and how it will really drive DDR5 Overclocking on the AM5 platform.
AMD memory support manager Joseph Tao said
Our first DDR5 gaming platform was our Raphael platform, and one of the great things about Raphael is that we really try to get your attention by overclocking at speeds that you wouldn't think were possible.
