AMD expands Ryzen DDR4 memory compatibility list

by on21 June 2017

Ranging from DDR4-2133 to DDR4-3200

AMD has continued to work on updates for its Ryzen CPUs and AM4 motherboards and has posted an extended and updated compatibility of DDR4 memory modules and kits.

While most DDR4 memory modules and kits should work with AMD AM4 motherboards, the latest list provided by AMD includes a bunch of different memory types from the likes of ADATA, Corsair, G.Skill, GEIL and HyperX with frequency ranging from 2133MHz to 3200MHz.

The latest AGESA v1.0.0.6 update for motherboards, detailed back in May by Robert Hallock, a technical marketing guy for AMD's CPU division, talked a lot about DDR4 stability and was focused on kits running over 2667MHz as well as added 26 new parameters which improve DDR4 memory compatibility on the AM4 platform.

With the latest memory compatibility list, AMD has further expanded the compatibility and in case you are having some trouble, you should check if your motherboard BIOS contains the aforementioned AGESA micro-code update.

The DDR4 memory frequency has a significant impact on the performance of the Ryzen CPU so adding further compatibility and support will certainly help.
