ASUS Z690 motherboard, DDR5 memory overclocking capability blows up to 6400MHz

The maximum overclocking speeds supported by ASUS Z690 motherboards for both DDR5 and DDR4 memory have been leaked.

ASUS Z690, share their maximum OC memory speeds

With the introduction of Intel’s new Alder Lake S processors, new products are being introduced that bring a quantum leap in performance, such as DDR5 memory and Intel’s next-generation Z690 motherboards along with the entire 600 families of mid-range and low-end motherboards.

DDR5 memory support is warranted on the Z690 motherboards, but there will be limitations on the speeds they can achieve, at least in this first generation of motherboards.

We know that Z690 motherboards and Intel Core “Alder Lake” processors will support both DDR5 and DDR4 memory. This will save many PC users from having to pay a lot of money when the 12th generation is launched.

According to the leak, the Z690 F-GAMING motherboard will support maximum OC speeds of 6400, while the PRIME-A will be limited to 6000. For models with DDR4 memory, this value reaches 5333.

It’s clear that DDR5 RAM can reach, or has the potential to reach, much higher speeds than those shown here. This means that early Intel 600 series motherboards won’t be able to take advantage of the full potential of this memory. On the other hand, we also have to keep in mind that the motherboards listed are not the high-end ones, so there could still be surprises in the maximum supported memory speeds.

We can’t wait to see how much performance DDR5 memory will deliver and if it will be a real performance leap over DDR4.
