AMD prepares AGESA firmware updates to add 24GB and 48GB DDR5 support to AM5

AMD's working to add 24GB and 48GB DDR5 module support to their AM5 platform

New 24GB and 48GB "non-binary" DDR5 modules have been released, giving customers much-needed half-steps between 16GB and 32GB modules and 32GB and 64GB modules. These new DRAM module sizes are revolutionary for PC builders who want a lot of memory, but don't want their systems to be crazy expensive, and it sounds like AMD's AM5 motherboards are not currently playing well with these new RAM kits. 

According to a report from chi11edog on Twitter, AMD are working on a new AGESA update (version that will add support for "non-binary" DDR5 24GB and 48GB DRAM modules to their AM5 platform. This will allow users of AMD's Ryzen 7000 series processors to support these new DDR5 DIMM capacities and remove annoying compatibility issues.

24GB and 48GB DRAM modules are new to the PC market, and to many within the industry they are unexpected. Many motherboard manufacturers have been issuing press releases about their 24GB/48GB DRAM module support for Intel's 600 and 700 series motherboard platforms, a clear sign that Intel motherboards have also needed BIOS updates to make these new DRAM modules compatible with Intel's latest CPUs and motherboards. We expect AMD motherboard manufacturers to make similar announcements in the coming weeks regarding 24GB and 48GB DDR5 module support on AM5 motherboards, as adding support for these modules should be relatively easy to accomplish for a company the size of AMD.

These sizes grate with me, they break the bit/byte norm that we've used for decades.Quote
