The latest AGESA firmware update for AM5 motherboards brings something special for overclockers: The ability to overclock the DRAM to 8,000 MT/s and higher. MSI’s MEG X670E ACE has achieved the highest reported bandwidth of 8,200 MT/s using a pair of OLOy sticks from SK Hynix. The CAS latency was set to 38, and the RAS was set to 48 clocks. The Cycle and Bank Cycle Times were set to 126 and 168 clocks, respectively.
Gigabyte was kind enough to send us a press release regarding the DDR5-8000 XMP profile. Using the latest AGESA 184.108.40.206B BIOS on the X670E Aorus Master, the vendor has demonstrated memory clocks of up to 8000 MT/s with the CL latency set to 38. The motherboard was paired with the Ryzen 9 7900X3D, and the voltage was set to 1.3v.
While unofficial BIOS versions are already available online, we suggest waiting for the official release, which should happen in the next few weeks.
