Intel Z790 motherboards support DDR5 memory up to 6800 MHz

Today we came across the leak of some technical specifications of a couple of motherboards from M: YES equipped with the chipset Intel Z790the company’s new top-of-the-range chipset to squeeze its new processors Intel Raptor Lake.

Thanks to these leaks, the compatibility of the motherboard with the memories is revealed DDR5-RAMbeing able to know that the company will have Premium models that will support the use of DDR5 memory sticks with speeds of up to 6800MHz. Of course, this maximum speed can only be reached installing a single memory stick in the system. In case of adding a second memory module, this maximum speed will be up to 6400MHz.

The maximum performance in Intel arrives using a single DDR5 memory module

MSI Intel Z700 DDR5-6800MHz

Specifically, it goes so far as to state that the entire series of motherboards MSI MEG-Z790 will support speeds up to 6800MHz when only a memory module is used RAM, which also implies an additional cost, since a module of this type with a 32 GB capacity will be slightly more expensive than combining two of 16 GB to have the same capacity.

If we think of the most modest variants at the price level, we have to talk of DDR4 RAMwhere for now it has been seen that the maximum compatibility will be with modules of up to 5333MHz. In this case, also for a single memory module, which is a small improvement over the 5200 MHz we saw on Alder Lake motherboards with the Intel Z690 chipset. Not to mention another step forward from DDR5 at 5600 MHz.

In this way, Intel will cover all price ranges, ranging from using inexpensive DDR4 memoryto the fastest DDR5 chips on the market for which you can afford to buy a module or overclock a module up to 6800 MHz. Remember that unlike DDR4 memory, you do not need to install two memory modules (Dual Channel) to receive the same performance advantages, so the user who only thinks about having the highest possible performance, regardless of the cost, will use that memory configuration.

The maximum speed will depend on each manufacturer and motherboard Intel Z790

This is the first time we see a motherboard reveal support for 6800MHz DDR5 RAM, and this is because each motherboard model, manufacturer, platform has different requirements. For example, in the case of AMD, so far we have seen only one Biostar X670E Valkyriewhich supported maximum DDR5 speeds of 6000MHz overclocked.

Obviously, we are talking about the best memories you can afford for maximum performance, but once these processors come out, it will be interesting to know what they are. the ideal speeds in terms of price for performance. In essence, the maximum recommended to pay for the best performance, since there is a point that the investment made does not correspond to the performance improvement that is received
