ASRock’s next-gen Z790 + H770 motherboards include DDR4 models
Intel’s new 13th Gen Core ‘Raptor Lake’ CPUs debut this year, ASRock’s new Z790 + H770 motherboards include DDR4 variants.
Intel will launch its new 13th Gen Core “Raptor Lake” CPUs later this year, with the new 700-series chipset: but it looks like DDR4 support will continue on next-gen motherboards.
ASRock’s new Z790 and H770 motherboards have been teased, which will be led by the flagship ASRock Z790 Taichi motherboard at the top, and the H770 Steel Legend at the bottom. Intel’s current 12th Gen Core “Alder Lake” CPUs and some 600-series motherboards support DDR4 RAM.
But, Intel hasn’t been loose with information on whether Raptor Lake will support DDR4, but it seems that there are plenty in development. We can see in the list that there’s the ASRock Z790 Pro RS/D4 at the top of the stack, while the company will have multiple Z790 PG Lightning boards (one with DDR5 and another with DDR4). There’ll also be the H770 PG Lightning in both DDR5 + DDR4 variants by the looks of things.
We should expect more concrete details on frequency in the coming days and weeks, with Intel’s current-gen 12th Gen Core “Alder Lake” CPUs seeing much higher (5GHz+) frequencies, and AMD’s upcoming Zen 4-powered Ryzen 7000 series CPUs are going to be pushing past 5.5GHz+ without an issue when they debut later this year.
Intel is reportedly cranking up the CPU clocks on its Raptor Lake CPUs, where we might see the dizzying silicon heights of 5.8GHz. Intel is going to be throwing everything it can at the 13th Gen Core CPUs, with higher CPU clocks, more cache, and more cores.
