There will soon be a substantial RAM update for AMD motherboards


The AMD motherboards are about to receive a significant BIOS update that will introduce support for DDR5 RAM modules with capacities of 24 gigabytes and 48 gigabytes. This will turn decades of research into memory capacity allocation on their heads and cause math nerds everywhere to lose their minds. For a very long time, traditional RAM modules have adhered to the power of 2s capacity scheme. This means that their capacities range from 2 gigabytes (GB) to 4 GB (GB), 8 GB (GB), 16 GB (GB), and so on. This is connected to the way computers store data by utilising binary numbers, which are the traditional 0s and 1s of the digital age.

Nevertheless, this has been more of a convention for memory capacity for a long time rather than a strict need for a considerable amount of time. Some of the greatest solid-state drives (SSDs) have capacities of 500 gigabytes, which is 12 gigabytes less than the 512 gigabytes that would be obtained if the data were represented in pure binary form. Outside of high-end workstation PCs, 12 GB, 24 GB, and other such amounts of total system memory have only very rarely been available on a single RAM module. However, it has always been possible to combine many RAM modules to achieve the desired total system memory amount.

Increasing the amount of memory on your computer is, in the opinion of the vast majority of people, the single most beneficial upgrade that can be made to a personal computer. This is despite the fact that purchasing the most powerful processor and graphics card that money can buy will make your PC run very smoothly. The finest RAM available today provides a fantastic level of performance, which, when combined with its ability to clear up bottlenecks in your routine operations, makes it superior to pretty about any other improvement. Memory is required for the operation of every application, and the more memory you have, the more room each programme has to function without becoming bogged down by the constraints imposed on it by your operating system.

In addition, the DIMM slots on the majority of motherboards can only accommodate a maximum of four memory modules, and some smaller boards have even fewer accessible slots than that. That means that being able to squeeze more memory into a single slot is a major deal since it raises the top limit of what is achievable on any particular machine. This is because it allows for more memory to be stored in the same amount of physical space.

You can acquire an astounding 192GB RAM on a consumer motherboard by using four 48GB DDR5 RAM modules. This amount of memory is comparable to what you would find on a professional workstation. Even though the vast majority of people will never require so much memory, purchasing two 24GB modules will almost remove any system latency that users will suffer as a result of insufficient memory for the remainder of this decade (two 24GB modules will be better than a single 48GB module due to the nature of dual-channel memory).
