MSI Preps a Host of Intel Z790 Motherboards with DDR4

Intel’s Z690 platform launched DDR5 to the desktop market, however preliminary DDR5 modules had been fairly costly and didn’t fairly stay as much as expectations concerning efficiency. However as high-speed DDR5 kits get cheaper, the brand new kind of reminiscence will get extra engaging, which is why we anticipated most of Intel’s Z790-based platforms to characteristic DDR5 reasonably than DDR4. We had been incorrect. MSI is prepping a number of Z790-based motherboards with good-old DDR4 reminiscence.

MSI readies Z790 Edge DDR4, Z790 Tomahawk DDR4, and Z790 Professional DDR4 motherboards that may mix Intel’s latest chipset and DDR4 reminiscence, in keeping with manuals revealed by (opens in new tab) (and found by momomo_us (opens in new tab)). These fundamental boards will help as much as DDR4-5333+ reminiscence modules in a single DIMM per channel configuration and as much as DDR4-4400+ sticks in two DIMMs per channel setup. Nonetheless, loads will depend upon CPU capabilities and processor cooling methods.
