AMD Ryzen 7000 “Raphael” processors can support DDR5-5600 memory natively, which is more than what Intel Alder Lake currently offers.
The leaker also revealed that the Raphael lineup will feature Raphael-X 3D processors, meaning AMD is already working to bring back the 3D V-Cache we saw in the AMD Ryzen 7 5800X3D.
KittyYYuko, a Twitter leaker, provided the information. They were able to provide plenty of information for some intriguing speculations in a short and catchy post. With the debut of the AMD Ryzen 7000 processors coming just a few months away, every piece of information is worth considering, but keep an open mind until AMD releases the full specs for the lineup.
the Ryzen 7000 desktop lineup will feature both Raphael and Raphael-X. However, only one line of processors will be launched this year. AMD will launch Ryzen 7000 desktop processors without 3D V-Cache technology in 2022, and now the Raphael-X 3D line is expected to follow in 2023, branded Ryzen 7000X3D.
The leak also indicates that the Ryzen 7000 and Ryzen 7000X3D series will come with native support for DDR5-5600 memory. Previous reports pointed to a slower memory spec of DDR5-5200, so we’re seeing a huge increase here. For comparison, Intel Alder Lake’s native memory specification is DDR5-4800, but it’s also expected to support DDR5-5600 when Intel Raptor Lake releases in the fall. In short, AMD and Intel will face off here, after months of delay from AMD due to lack of DDR5 memory support.
Given that the recent AMD Ryzen 7 5800X3D is doing well and showing off its massive 3D V-Cache in terms of fantastic gaming performance, it’s not really surprising that AMD wants to bring the tech back soon. However, the implication of there being an entirely separate Raphael-X line suggests that there could be more than just one such processor this time around.
