Raptor Lake may retain DDR4 support

Intel’s new Alder Lake platform offers support for both DDR4 and DDR5 with several low-end motherboard models that are compatible with the former to keep costs down.

The current DDR5, in fact, for some models can even cost double the DDR4 and, as if that were not enough, they are also difficult to find, an aspect that could slow down the sales of the high-end also considering that the top of the Core i9-12900K range does not it is certainly a processor that makes you cry a miracle.

According to Moore’s Law is Dead Twitter account, DDR4 support “may” stay active a little longer on Intel platforms.

According to his sources, the 13th generation Intel Core processors, codenamed Raptor Lake, which basically would be an evolution of the 12th generation with an increase in the number of E-Cores (Gracemont) for the same MTP, will maintain support for DDR4. and perhaps also compatibility with Z690 motherboards and the upcoming H670, B660 and H610, which would allow Alder Lake-S buyers who decide to build a PC with DDR4 memory to be able to upgrade their platform next year by investing only on the CPU change.
