As reported by some sources close to production MS extensionthe Taiwanese company would be there reduce its range of Intel motherboards compatible with DDR4 memory. Specifically, there would be four models that MSI decided to withdraw to focus more on memories DDR5. The models that preview Lists as already “obsolete” are the following:
- MPG Z790 Edge WLAN DDR4
- Per Z790-A WLAN DDR4
- Per Z790-P DDR4
- MAG B6760 Mortar DDR4
These are therefore newer platforms, according to the Chinese website they will not be replenished once the stocks already on the market are exhausted. A decision that is understandable, however, since the attention of both CPU manufacturers and users is completely focused on the new standard.
On the other hand, Intel’s decision to continue supporting DDR4 memory was aimed solely at providing a more accessible upgrade to the 12th and 13th generation cores. However, AMD has decided to only support the new DDR5 standard with the X670 and B650 platforms.
However, the transition to the new stores is made easier by a significant drop in prices that has occurred in recent months to which the have been added new solutions with “non-standard” capabilities. Several memory manufacturers now offer this 24 or 48 GB modulesallowing you to achieve larger totals than current standards at almost equivalent pricing per gigabyte.
The. naturally. it does not determine the final farewell to the old standardbut it’s clear that the time has come to push DDR5 harder, thanks to better prices, growing performance, and more recently even capacities that DDR4 can’t afford.
