Leading DRAM Makers Release Modules Validated with AMD Ryzen 2000 CPUs

G.Skill and Team Group have released new high-performance DDR4 memory modules that the firms are guaranteeing to be compatible with AMD’s latest Ryzen 2000-series CPUs. The modules operate at up to 3600 MT/sec and are currently the fastest DIMMs compatible with AMD's Ryzen 2000-series processors and X470 platforms.

Modern CPUs have integrated memory controllers and the latter have rather unique peculiarities that affect their work, particularly when operating at overclocked frequencies above the JEDEC standards. For example, AMD’s original Ryzen processors are incompatible with high-performance memory modules designed primarily for Intel’s Skylake and Kaby Lake CPUs. Meanwhile, Intel’s Coffee Lake processors require different sub timings at DDR4-4000 and higher speeds than Kaby Lake CPUs. In general, AMD’s Ryzen 2000-series processors are compatible with modules designed for the original Ryzen 1000-series chips, but at least two makers of high-end DIMMs released memory specifically validated with AMD’s latest platforms.

G.Skill, which supplies DDR4 DIMMs for AMD’s reference platforms, offers seven dual-channel kits for AMD’s Ryzen 2000 processors rated for DDR4-3200, DDR4-3400, DDR4-3466, and DDR4-3600 at 1.35 V (see precise specs in the table below). For those who need RGB lighting, G.Skill offers Trident Z RGB for AMD modules, whereas for users who do not need lighting effects the company has Sniper X for AMD DIMMs. The modules use well-known cooling systems and are based on hand-picked DRAM chips.

Team Group’s T-Force Dark Pro DDR4 lineup validated with AMD’s 2nd Generation Ryzen CPUs includes multiple SKUs operating at DDR4-3000 to DDR4-3466 at 1.35 V. The DIMMs are based on hand-selected memory chips and feature the company’s proprietary five-piece cooling systems. The company offers the T-Force Dark Pro DDR4 modules in two color schemes: with white and red inlays.

The new modules from G.Skill and Team validated with AMD’s Ryzen 2000-series CPUs will hit the market in the coming weeks. Keep in mind that validation does not mean that all of the announced products are in fact new products since DIMMs launched for the original Ryzen processors work fine with the new CPUs, but may offer a limited overclocking potential (which is the worst-case scenario, but which has to be kept in mind).
