The XMP Zen 4 version will be called AMD RAMP


AMD RAMP technology is a DDR5 acceleration setup similar to Intel’s XMP. AMD RAMP technology is expected to launch with the AM5 platform and will accelerate DDR5 memory beyond JEDEC specifications, following the same specifics as what XMP does on Intel platforms.


AMD RAMP = Ryzen Accelerated Memory Profile

It was the developer of HWiNFO who confirmed that AMD will bring RAMP support with its Ryzen 7000 desktop processors (Zen 4) that will arrive simultaneously with the new AM5 motherboards. According to him, RAMP will allow memory and motherboard manufacturers to collaborate on RAM performance on their respective products. RAMP would also allow AMD Ryzen processors to catch up to the DDR5 speeds currently supported by Alder Lake. It is also known that the upcoming Raptor Lakes, which are expected around the same time as AMD’s Zen 4 chips, should also benefit from increased DDR5 performance. The new Zen 4 architecture is expected to gain up to 25 percent on IPC compared to Zen 3 and would reach clock speeds of around 5 GHz. The use of DDR5 will be an important issue for AMD. Intel is a bit of a wet blanket on the subject since for the moment the gain provided by the first DDR5 kits is not really dazzling considering the price difference with DDR4.
