AMD's latest AGESA update is showing strong DRAM support on ASUS' ROG Strix X670E Gaming Motherboard
In case you are not aware, users of AMD's AM5 motherboards have not having a good time with the new 24GB and 48GB DDR5 module sizes that have been coming from DRAM manufacturers. Systems are not booting into Windows, and AMD are working on a new AGESA update that will enable full support for these strange module sizes on their AM5 platform and Ryzen 7000 series processors.
Over on the ASUS ROG forums, [email protected] has been teasing this new AGESA update by showcasing a system with AMD's Ryzen 9 7950X processor and an ASUS ROG Strix X670E Gaming motherboard running with four 48GB DDR5 memory modules, giving their system 192GB of total DDR5 memory.
The kit used by Raja is a 192GB (4x48GB) DDR5-5200 memory kit that is running at CL40-40-40-77 timings. This system is said to be using the "latest AGESA" from AMD, and Raja has stated that he is "not sure when this (update) will go public". What we can confirm for now is that the update is currently being used in ASUS' labs and that it appears to be working as intended.
Thanks to this tease, it seems likely that AMD and their motherboard partners plan to released BIOS/UEFI updates that will implement this new AGESA and enable support for non-binary DDR5 memory modules on AM5 motherboards. This is great news for workstation users, a non0binary 24GB and 48GB DDR5 memory modules appear to be great options for users who require more DRAM than the norm, but do not want to invest in more memory capacity than they need with 32GB and 64GB DRAM modules.
