AMD is preparing Ryzen Accelerated Memory Profile technology for DDR5

The AMD Ryzen Accelerated Memory Profile (RAMP) thus essentially replaces the A-XMP profiles used with DDR4 memories. It will be designed for AM5 sockets and processors with DDR5 support, ie the Ryzen 7000 “Raphael” generation, but it could also be the Ryzen 6000 “Rembrandt” desktop APU, which also has DDR5 (and LPDDR5) memory support.

Preliminary support for AMD RAMP has also been added in beta version 7.17 of the HWiNFO software. RAMP should be connected directly to the AM5 platform, so we probably can’t expect it in notebooks. It will simply be similar to Intel XMP 3.0, or memory profiles, which will allow us to easily set such cycles with the appropriate timing and supply voltage for which the modules are prepared and with which they should work without any problems.

RAMP can be expected to be based on the XMP offering, but at the same time, AMD should allow memory module manufacturers to create special profiles purely for Ryzens. As customers, of course, we will find out from the specifications.

AMD, meanwhile, can only hope that DDR5 memory will expand in the market by the time the Ryzen 7000 processors come in, deliveries will rise and prices will fall. It is now possible to get DDR5 DIMMs on the market, but we can’t choose much yet (the lack of power PMICs for the modules still persists) and their prices are still very high compared to DDR4, which has also become cheaper in recent weeks. But in half a year, the situation may be very different, although this does not apply to the mobile Ryzen 6000 “Rembrandt”, which is due to come to market in new notebook models in February. But in their case, they will probably not be memory modules, but rather the integration of DDR5 directly on the motherboard.
