ASUS Empowers Memory Overclocking with DDR5-8000 Support

The latest firmware upgrade from ASUS is once again making the headlines. The latest update for the X670E and B650E motherboard families allows compatible DDR5 memory to be overclocked to over 8000 MHz. This is a really big step forward in terms of performance and responsiveness.

The BIOS updates were launched at the end of August of this year, and updating to the latest version of this firmware is essential for those who want to enjoy the latest updates. According to the release note, the models compatible with the update include the ROG Crosshair X670E Extreme ROG Strix X670E-F Gaming WiFi, among many others.

This update can be a game-changer, especially for the Ryzen 7000 series of builds, given the more ready availability of DDR 5 kits.

All this development is especially exciting as, not too long ago, when the AMD Ryzen 7000 Series CPUs were first launched, 6000 Hz was thought to be the sweet spot. Witnessing the landscape change so much in such a short time is exciting for those observing the space.

But achieving these memory overclocking heights isn’t just about the firmware. Several factors, including rank, density, and memory population, affect the memory overclocking potential. For instance, a single-rank 2-DIMM DDR5 kit can achieve the highest transfer rates, whereas adding more sticks increases capacity but can impact overclocking potential.

With ASUS’s lineup, including the ROG Crosshair X670E Hero, which is a high-end powerhouse with PCIe 5.0 x16 slots and audiophile-grade audio, and the ROG Strix X670E-E Gaming WiFi, among others, being able to provide the best that this update has to offer, the stage for unlocking the full potential for enhanced gaming, content creation, and multitasking capabilities is set.
