DDR5-9058 memory on AMD B650E motherboard
Chihhua “HiCookie” Ke, a renowned Taiwanese overclocker who collaborates closely with the Gigabyte/AORUS team, has wasted no time in making the most of the new firmware designed for AMD motherboards compatible with Ryzen 7000 CPUs. The initial outcomes are highly promising.
The introduction of the new AGESA 1007B, which was released earlier this week for select motherboards and will be available for others soon, marks a significant development for high-speed DDR5 memory on the AMD platform. Previously, the use of such memory was limited to Intel 700-series motherboards. With this firmware update, AMD has made substantial improvements in memory support.
In the past, the AMD platform faced challenges in accommodating memory speeds above 6200 MT/s, which was considered the sweet spot for the platform. However, after intensive efforts spanning two months by AMD and motherboard manufacturers, the new AGESA firmware has proven that the AMD platform still has more to offer.
Within just 24 hours of the AGESA update release, HiCookie accomplished an impressive overclocking feat by pushing the AORUS DDR5-8400 memory to 9058 MT/s, all while maintaining timings that were either comparable to or even better than the official XMP 8400 MT/s profile (56-56-126-127 vs. 56-56-136-130), and all at a voltage of 1.4V.
This overclocking was achieved using the AORUS B650E Tachyon motherboard, known for its high-end design tailored for overclocking. The motherboard was paired with AMD’s latest Ryzen 7 7800X3D processor, showcasing the true potential of the AMD platform. The fact that this OC attempt happened less than 24 hours since the release of the new AGESA bodes well for the DDR5 support on the AM5 platform. One should be looking forward to seeing new overclocking records achieved with Ryzen 7000 series very soon.
