When you’re planning to construct a third-generation Ryzen system and are anxious that it could be finicky with sure RAM kits, there is not any want to worry—a number of reminiscence corporations have already launched RAM that has been examined on AMD’s latest platform, and I think many extra will comply with. The newest to affix the fray is Geil.
For probably the most half, compatibility shouldn’t be a significant concern anyway. A package of DDR4 RAM ought to work in any motherboard with DDR4 DIMM slots, whether or not you are operating an Intel processor or one from AMD. That mentioned, hitting marketed settings can generally be depending on the platform.
As such, Geil has validated sure Evo X II kits particularly for Ryzen PCs. Dubbed Evo X II AMD Version, these kits are being supplied in frequencies starting from 2,400MHz all the way in which as much as 4,000MHz.
Timings range by package, and the quicker the frequency, the looser they’re. Here is a helpful chart Geil put collectively that breaks it down by package, in packs of two modules (as examined on an unspecified X570 motherboard):
Not too shabby, although G.Talent nonetheless presents the general greatest RAM package (by specs) for Ryzen. Its Trident-Z Neo sequence is obtainable in a DDR4-3600 package with timings set at 14-15-15-35. Geil’s kits do not match that, and neither do latest choices from Patriot.
That is actually nitpicking issues, although. Setups are more likely to reply higher to quicker frequency RAM than barely tighter timings. Nonetheless, G.Talent has probably the most enticing package proper now for a high-end Ryzen PC.
Geil didn’t say when its new Evo II AMD Version kits will probably be out there or how a lot they’ll price.
