(Rumor) AMD Ryzen 7000 would only come with DDR5 and a new chipset design

(Rumor) AMD Ryzen 7000 would only come with DDR5 and a new chipset design

According to the portal Tom's Hardware, the new AMD Ryzen 7000 series (Raphael) processors will only support DDR5 RAM. Take this as a rumor since it's not confirmed, but other sources (who have a good record of leaks) also mention the same thing.

The portal assures that X670 and B650 boards will only have DDR5 support for the new generation of AMD processors, which would worry many users, since the price of DDR5 RAM is not at all accessible, compared to its predecessor, DDR4.

It has been confirmed that the 13th generation of Intel (Raptor Lake) will have support for DDR4 and DDR5 memory, which would give a competitive disadvantage (in terms of options) compared to the new AMD processors.

Tom's Hardware also adds that if there is any chance of AMD having support for DDR4, it could be in the “A620” series but their sources say that chance is slim to none.

Although the supply of DDR5 memory is expected to improve during the middle of this year, one cannot know by what percentage the price of RAM memory would drop with this trend. In the end it is a matter of supply and demand.

Remember that to get the most out of 12th generation Intel processors, in scenarios where the bottleneck is not the video card (in gaming), DDR5 memories are necessary. Despite this, many users still opt for Intel and DDR4 since they cost less, or already have them.

AMD X670 would have a dual chiplet design in the chipset

According to a report China Times, the X670 motherboards would come with a dual chiplet design for the chipset and the designer ASMedia would be behind the manufacturing, using TSMC's 6nm process. Tom's Hardware has confirmed that X670 motherboards would come with this special chipset, while B650 and A620 motherboards would only come with a monolithic design.

We will see in the future what input and output options the new AMD AM5 platform will have and more rumors will come out closer to the launch date.
