Intel has revealed DDR5-7600 XMP modules for its i9-13900K CPUs and Z790 motherboards
While Intel's 13th generation Raptor Lake processors and Z790 motherboards will only officially support DDR5-5600 memory modules, the company's latest Extreme Memory Profile 3.0 (XMP 3.0) memory listing have revealed that DRAM modules with speeds of up to DDR5-7600 will be made available for Intel's next-generation CPUs and motherboards.
Currently, the fastest listed XMP 3.0 memory modules comes from G.Skill. Their fastest kits include DDR5-7600 modules that ship with two 16GB modules at 1.4V with timings of CL36-48-48-121. These modules were verified using an i9-13900K processor and an ASUS ROG Maximus Z790 Apex motherboard.
Alongside G.Skill, DDR5-7000+ memory modules from Team Group, Kingston, and ADATA are part of Intel's XMP 3.0 list. This showcases broad industry support for DDR5-7000+ memory speeds.
These high DDR5 memory speeds highlight that Intel's memory controller has improved with Raptor Lake to help support these higher module frequencies. Intel has stated that both Alder Lake and Raptor Lake feature the same memory controller design, but that improvements to Intel's Intel 7 lithography technology has allowed Intel to support higher memory frequencies with Raptor Lake.
Below is a list of DDR5-7000+ memory modules from Intel's XMP 3.0 list. Intel has stated that they have already achieved DDR5 memory speeds of past DDR5-10,000 in their labs with liquid nitrogen cooling, suggesting that Intel expects its Raptor Lake processors to achieve new memory overclocking records when they launch.
Intel's XMP 3.0 list confirms that multiple memory manufacturers plans to release ultra-fast DDR5 memory modules in the near future.
